Floating Oil Spill Alarm
Reliable monitoring of sumps and containments for oil spills
Over 30 years of Arjay’s field proven HF capacitance technology has been applied to the 9830-HCFOil Monitor. The unique floating sensor continuously monitors for the accumulation of oil at the water surface. • Floating sensor follows changing water levels • Alarms on petroleum, synthetic, andvegetable oils • Potted stable sensor eliminates nuisance alarms
The 9830-HCF sensor monitors the surface dielectric and locks in on the capacitance of the water. Oil that separates to thesurface changes the capacitance field and activates the relay alarms. This unit is normally used in sumps or containments where oil is not typically present. An upstream leak or spill thataccumulates in the sump will alarm the monitor. The floating design allows the unit to track the changing water level in the sump and immediately alert operators, pumps or valves.
Features and Benefits
•stable tri-float design follows level changes • adjustable time delay and sensitivity to eliminate nuisance alarms • remote electronics via standard twisted pair • available with Intrinsic SafetyBarrier for Hazardous Locations • waterproof PVC and SS wetted parts allow for use in harsh environments • unit also alarms on dry sump conditions to shut down pumps • capacitance technology responds to alltypes of oils and separated liquids of similar dielectrics • alarms at 6mm separated surface oil
