ODL-1600 Oil On Water Monitor.
This model is the most recent in a series of oil on water monitors. These have been field proven over decades and are used in a wide variety of installations worldwide. These instruments include the Models ODL-12 and ODL-20.
The design of the model ODL-1600 is the result of decades real world experience and features many new enhancements including faster signal processing, improved optical design and continuous scanning laser system. These design enhancements enable the Model ODL-1600 to offer improved oil detection even for non-ideal water surfaces such as those with bubbles present.
This model complements our existing range. If installation in hazardous areas is required, we recommend our intrinsically safe Model SODL-1600 version. The Model SODL-1600 has official certification showing compliance with the relevant IEC standards. Please refer to a separate specification sheet for information on this particular version.
Scanning laser beam system provides enhanced detection even under difficult surface conditions such as the presence of floating debris, bubbles or curved oil surfaces.
Scanning system contains no moving parts reducing power consumption and increasing reliability.
Fast signal processing and short pulse cycle of laser bean provides excellent detection ability even on water surfaces with ripples and waves.
Internal micro-computer provides comprehensive diagnostic and maintenance information including reflected light intensity, oil detection history etc..
The instrument is also capable of detecting leakage of water or oil on dry surfaces.
Enhanced optical design enables mounting of the detector from 0.3m up to 3m from the water surface (mounting up to 5m is possible for smooth water surfaces).
Rugged, cast aluminium enclosures suitable for mounting in harsh, industrial environments.
Simple, easy to adjust mounting brackets allow easy installation and maintenance.
A single transmitter can control up to two detectors (optional).
Principle of operation
The reflectance of light from an oil film is greater than that of water. When an oil film is present on a water surface, it generates a “glistening” effect. From this property, the presence of oil can be detected by applying a light beam of constant intensity to the water surface and then measuring the intensity of the reflected light.
The detector contains a semiconductor laser diode, a laser scanner and a photodiode light sensor. The light output from the laser tube is scanned across the water surface periodically across the x-y axis. The light that is reflected back by the water surface is captured by a parabolic mirror and focused on to a sensor located at the focal point of the mirror.The signal from the light sensor is processed by the micro electronics in the transmitter. From the processed signal it can be determined whether an oil film is present or not. The transmitter provides output signals indicating the detection status such as contact switching signals, analogue signals etc.
