UK-based Rivertrace will be show casing its new Smart PFM 107 Oil-in-Water Monitor, at booth 501 of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) from 1-4 May 2017 in Houston, Texas.

Currently undergoing sea trials in the Norwegian North Sea Sector, 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 Technologies.

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 0-500 microns. Unlike conventional monitors using light scatter or UV fluorescence, the PFM 107 requires no re-calibration if the oil varies from the standard calibration fluid making it an ideal monitor for offshore platforms, drill ships and FPSO’s. Flow and particulate characteristics can also be visualised live via remote access and via optional dedicated software on any Windows PC.

Oil concentration, pressure, temperature and oil alarm status are displayed on an easy to read LCD touch screen display. Oil concentrations, alarms and any faults are logged and stored within the system to comply with the reporting requirements of IMO resolution MEPC 107(49) and can be accessed remotely or downloaded onto a pc via LAN or USB for further analysis. When connected to the internet it is possible for remote diagnostics to be performed by the manufacturer or an approved service centre.

The Smart PFM offers a choice of auto cleaning methods to ensure the accuracy is maintained at all times. Dependant of the utilities available you can choose from an air driven solenoid, electronic actuator or high power ultrasonic cleaning method. The cleaning is fully automatic and operates whenever the system senses contamination of the optical windows.

Mike Coomber, Managing Director of Rivertrace comments, “The Smart PFM 107 Oil-in-Water Monitor is the only PFM on the market that comes with a choice of cleaning options as standard, preventing fouling, the most common failure of any PFM. We are committed to ongoing development to ensure that these products remain at the forefront of available technology, and consistently push the boundaries for oil-in-water analysis.”
