Water Quality Monitoring in Marine, Offshore and Industrial

+ SMART BILGE 15PPM OIL CONTENT MONITOR

By utilising the “Smart Cell” Detector Array Technology, developed by Rivertrace, the OCM analyses all three oil types (HFO, Diesel and Emulsions) simultaneously without the need for re-calibration.

A manual cell cleaning device is included as standard to easily enable routine maintenance. Optical cell fouling is recognised as a leading cause of monitor malfunction or incorrect reading. By simple operation of the manual cleaning device, the “Smart Cell” remains in optimum operating condition.

Replacement calibrated measuring cells can be purchased for easy change over on board the vessel and calibration check kits enable the crew to demonstrate the monitor is within factory calibration to PSC Surveyors.

The Smart Cell Bilge Alarm is readily available as a 5ppm version if required. It can also be tailor made for Hazardous Environments (Zone 1 & 2) as an Exd system with Auto Clean, all enclosed in an explosion proof cabinet.

APPLICATIONS

  • MEPC 107(49) Bilge Water Discharge
  • Rig Slop Tank Discharge
  • Air Cooler Drains Overboard Discharge
  • Oily Water Separator Discharge

+ SMART PFM 107 OIL-IN-WATER MONITOR

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION

The monitor measures particulates in the sample stream on a continuous basis by passing the process fluid through a proprietary photo optical measuring cell developed by Rivertrace.

Using a combination of optical recognition algorithms and light intensity it is possible to differentiate between Oil particles, Gas/Air Bubbles and Solid particulates in the range 1-500 microns. Flow and particulate characteristics can be visualised live via the 7” display.

Oil concentration, pressure, temperature and oil alarm status are displayed on an HD touchscreen. Oil concentrations, alarms and fault log are stored within the system to comply with the reporting requirements of IMO resolution MEPC.107(49) and can be downloaded onto a pc via LAN or USB for further analysis.

The SMART PFM 107 offers a choice of auto cleaning methods to ensure the accuracy is maintained at all times. The cleaning is fully automatic and operates whenever it senses contamination of the optical windows.

APPLICATIONS

  • Drill Rig Slop Tanks
  • Oily Water Separator Discharge
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Produced Water Discharge

FEATURE

  • Oil type independent
  • Solid and gas particle independent.
  • Embedded windows
  • 7″ full colour touch screen.
  • Camera display to view contaminants within the sample.

+ SMART ODME

The Oil Discharge Monitoring Equipment (Smart ODME) has been designed to provide means of monitoring, recording and controlling the ballast discharge for crude oil, product and chemical tankers including ICE class vessels. This system is modular in construction and does not require the usual pump/motor bulkhead penetration as used on older systems. The Smart ODME includes all components required to meet MEPC 108(49) and the latest MEPC 240(65) for Bio Fuels, effective 1 January 2016.

The Smart ODME incorporates a ‘simulation mode’ to aid system demonstration to PSC surveyors, is designed for ease of retrofitting, operation, installation and maintenance.

Discharge limits are set at 30 litres of Oil per nautical mile or 1 / 30,000 of the previous cargo for slop and wash water discharges.

APPLICATIONS

  • Slop Water Discharge
  • Tank Wash Water Discharge
  • Clean Ballast Water Discharge
  • Bio Fuel Approved
  • Easy Installation

+ SMARTSAFE ORB

The Smartsafe ORB (oil record book) Bilge Overboard Security System was developed in response to our customers’ worldwide requests and requirements. This system records the oily water discharge process of any Oil Water Separator (IMO – MEPC 60.33 or 107.49) thus avoiding the common mistakes of manual entries and log variations in the oil record book. This is often seen as an easy target for Port State Control and other Marine Enforcing Agencies.

In its simplest form the Smartsafe ORB will utilise the ships GPS and records the process of the bilge water discharge. The base unit documents the vessel’s time/date/latitude and longitude of the start and stop of the discharge process. The event summary is displayed on the control screen for easy viewing and is used to annotate the oil record book.

This data can be downloaded to a PC, printed or emailed using the built-in email application.

APPLICATIONS

  • Bilge Water Discharge Security
  • Electronic Oil Record Book
  • Oily Water Separator Discharge • Protection Against Magic Pipe
  • Provides early indication of faults

OPTIONAL COMPONENTS

  • GPS + Interface Unit
  • Printer
  • Flow Meter
  • Secondary Diverter Valve
  • Separator Interface Unit

+ SMART ESM – Exhaust Scrubber Washwater Monotor

With the IMO’s 2020 global sulphur cap fast approaching, a popular solution to ensure compliance is to install an exhaust gas cleaning system (EGCS).

For this, wet scrubber systems use wash water to remove the pollutants from the exhaust gas. Therefore the wash water being discharged must be monitored at all times to ensure it is within the limits set by the regulating body. There are IMO regulations for water quality parameters including Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), pH and turbidity prior to discharge into the ocean.

Rivertrace is an ISO 9001 Quality-Assured Company and market leader in Oil in Water Quality Monitoring, with over 30 years’ experience and your partner to ensure that the wash water discharged from your exhaust gas cleaning systems is compliant with the global regulations on discharge.

Our SMART ESM monitor developed by Rivertrace, is suitable for both the inlet and outlet of a wet exhaust gas cleaning system, measuring and recording PAH, Turbidity, Temperature and pH, on open-loop, closed-loop and hybrid scrubber systems.

The SMART ESM is fully compliant with MEPC 259(68) and provides reliable information to ensure compliance with the worldwide SOx limits.

APPLICATIONS

  • Ensures compliance of wash water discharge from ship EGCS is within regulatory limits
  • Fully compliant with IMO MEPC 259(68)
  • Systems suitable for both new ship and retro fit installations
  • Compatible with Open Loop, Closed Loop and Hybrid systems
  • Suitable for inlet and outlet monitoring

+ OCD 50M OIL IN WATER MONITOR

A monitor designed to cater for the special conditions associated with high sample temperatures. This
unit will detect oil in much smaller quantities with great reliability and repeatability. Increased boiler protection from early detection of oil contamination.
