‘Spillwatch’ distribution deal for OSIL

Industry Database

Hampshire UK based Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL) has become the exclusive global representative for the Optimare Spillwatch non-contact oil detection system.

The detection of petroleum products, including crude oil, diesel/fuel oil, motor oil, lube oil, gasoline, etc, near the water surface is widely required in industrial and environmental applications.

The Spillwatch system remotely detects and monitors hydrocarbons and oil on water in real-time, by detecting fluorescence produced as a result of LED-based excitation. Its innovative optical set-up and all solid state opto-electronic components guarantee high sensitivity and allow maintenance free operation for a period of two years. The system automatically filters out ambient conditions (e.g. sunlight), providing highly reliable detection under all light, weather, and water surface conditions.

The SpillWatch sensor is installed looking downwards, several meters above water level. The non-contact installation above water eases installation and operation and eliminates problems such as bio-fouling. In the event of a spill, the SpillWatch provides an instant warning, enabling the automatic activation of countermeasures such as shutting off pumps or valves and notifying personnel via a variety of interfaces and wireless options.

SpillWatch sensors can be used as stand-alone monitors or within a network of strategically mounted sensors interconnected by the SpillMaster software.
