The measurement method employs light scattering as the base technique, but uses a novel concept whereby multiple wavelength light sources combined with multiple detector angles are used to differentiate between the various contaminants within the water phase. Great attention has been given to ensure the instrument construction is rugged whilst remaining easy to use.
The industrial monitor OMD-7 MKII by use of this novel Light Scattering technique is capable of measuring free oil, solids and turbidity in the following applications:
- Surface water run-off from power stations, chemical plants, refineries and petroleum tank farms.
- Boiler Condensate returns.
- Produced water discharge from production platforms and FPSO’s.
- Cooling water in a variety of industrial environments.
Monitors of the type OMD12, OMD15 and OMD17 are using the differentiation to accurately measure the actual oil concentration in the water.
In addition to a range of monitors to conform to the IMO-regulations for shipboard discharge of oily water, Hydro-Carbon Filtration & Separation supplies applications such as: boiler condensate, process water, cooling water and general effluent discharge from power stations, chemical plants, tank farms and offshore platforms.
Industrial applications are such that the supply of a standard monitor is invariably insufficient to cope with process conditions. Therefore we ask for our application questionnaire to be completed. This enables us to tailor a system to your exact requirements and provide something that will prove reliable and as maintenance free as possible. We would be happy to discuss any requirements you might have for our systems and, on receipt of more technical information would provide budget prices and outlines.

Depending on the actual application the monitors can be combined with additional equipment like recorders, sample conditioning units, sample lift pumps and special coolers to form turn-key monitoring systems on request.
