Oil in Water

Oil spills and oil discharge are some of the most well-known risks of operating a ship. Monitoring and recording the oil content of almost all discharged water is required to obtain an IOPP certificate. Ballast water from cargo tanks and wash water from cargo tanks must be sampled by an ODME [MEPC.108(49)] and all bilge water discharges must be monitored by a bilge water or 15ppm alarm [MEPC.107(49)] to avoid excessive oil in the discharge water. Insatech Marine is authorized to deliver, install and service some of the major brands of both ODME and 15 ppm alarms.

 

15ppm Bilge Alarm

The BilgeMon 488 15ppm Bilge Alarm is used in connection with the ship's oil filtering equipment where it monitors the oil content of the separated/filtered water. The Bilge Monitor is approved according to the latest IMO MEPC.107(49) rules and can therefore be used by smaller vessels in MARPOL "Special Areas" and by larger vessels as required by MARPOL Annex I. The BilgeMon 488 is compact and easy to install as a replacement for most old 15ppm alarms - A perfect retrofit.

GreenMon

Dirty Water Oil Content Monitor (Greenmon) - Using fluorescence spectroscopy with a free falling sample water jet, you avoid accuracy drift and frequent maintenance needs normally caused by fouling.

Brannström mastertrack 588

The Bilge Monitoring Mastertrack588 is your tamper proof system, it’s control and monitoring is used in connection with the ship's oil filtering equipment where it monitors the oil content of the mechanism to ensure the bilge water discharge from a ship is in accordance with MARPOL 73/78, i.e. it does not exceed the legal limit. The unit is required for vessels above 10.000 gross tons when operating in certain areas. The Mastertrack588 bilge monitor is thus your compliance tool.
