Rivertrace wins Alfa Laval contract for oil content monitor

Rivertrace, producer of water quality monitoring products, has signed an agreement as a preferred supplier of oil content monitors (OCM) for Alfa Laval PureBilge separator.

Rivertrace’s Smart Bilge oil content monitors utilise the ‘Smart Cell’ Detector Array Technology to analyse all three oil types – HFO, diesel and emulsions – simultaneously, without the need for re-calibration.

Alfa Laval's PureBilge is the market-leading centrifugal type oily water separator, which has high reputation in the market.

Rivertrace’s Smart Bilge OCM utilises the ‘Smart Cell’ Detector Array Technology, developed by Rivertrace, to analyse all three oil types (HFO, diesel and emulsions) simultaneously, without the need for re-calibration.

To ensure maximum efficiency and accuracy, the Smart Bilge includes as standard a manual cell cleaning device, allowing easy routine maintenance. Optical cell fouling is recognised as a leading cause of monitor malfunction, or incorrect reading so by enabling a simple manual cleaning device, the ‘Smart Cell’ can remain in optimum operating condition.

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

Mike Coomber, managing director, Rivertrace, said: “We are really proud that our Smart Bilge has been selected to ensure compliance by one of the leading separator manufactures in the world. We look forward to a long-term working relationship where we can support Alfa Laval’s customer focused vision to deliver the highest quality and best value for their customers.
