The Kemtrak FL007 is a fibre optic probe-based oil in water monitor that is ideal for those looking to:
• Trace oil in water
• Detect leaks
• Measure cooling water and condensate return
• Monitor drinking water, wastewater, and impact on the environment.
Offering a state-of-the-art combined fluorescence and turbidity measurement, the Kemtrak FL007 provides reliable, continuous monitoring of oil and hydrocarbon contamination in water. Highlights include:
• Simultaneous UV fluorescence and turbidity
• Hygienic Ø12 mm PG 13.5 immersion probe
• Real time in-line measurement
• Calibration for 16 different oil types
• Suitable for hazardous area use
• Alarm, 4-20mA and Modbus communications.
The probe works on the basis that mineral oils rich in aromatic content will fluoresce when illuminated with ultraviolet light. The intensity of this fluorescence is dependent upon the polyaromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) content of the oil. Typical oils that fluoresce are fuel oil, crude oil, hydraulic oil, and transformer oil.
Every oil has its own unique fluorescence intensity, resulting from its specific PAH content. The combined fluorescence from both dissolved and dispersed oil in water can then be measured and correlated to the oil content.
Other gases and solids present in the stream will not fluoresce and therefore do not affect the measurement, and it’s important to bear in mind that non-mineral oils or hydrocarbons low in aromatic content may not fluoresce.
Standard features of the Kemtrak FL007 include:
• 16 linearization tables for multiple product switching
• Remote zeroing
• Automatic cleaning cycle
• Signal filtering.
A range of standard fittings and retractable probe holders to be used, due to the immersion probe having the same dimensions as industry standard Ø12 mm PG 13.5 pH sensors.
If you’re working in a hazardous environment, the probe is still suitable for use owing to its robust, industrial fibre optic probe with scratch resistant sapphire optics, no electronics, and no moving parts.
It can also be remotely operated and calibrated through a built-in graphical internet-based interface using a standard web browser.
