KAM Simple Precision
 
OOD Optical Oil Detector

OOD-Art-smallThe ideal solution for oil-in-water detection, the KAM OOD Optical Oil Detector offers unmatched simplicity and pinpoint accuracy in an in-line meter. The OOD allows operators to monitor produced water and wastewater streams for the presence of hydrocarbons in a variety of applications, providing continuous, real-time data with a minimum range of 0-500 ppm. Fiber optics within the optical probe respond to the fluorescence and absorption in the fluid to detect the presence and quantity of hydrocarbons in water. The combined data is translated as voltage on a 4-20 mA output.

The simplicity of design and quality of engineering employed in the KAM® OOD™ mean there are no moving parts. Using long-lasting LED light sources ensures long-term, stable performance with limited maintenance and power requirements. In addition, locating the electronics within an explosion-proof enclosure directly on the atmospheric end of the optical probe creates a complete and compact unit with maximum installation flexibility.

Measurement is completely automatic without the need for operator intervention or supervision, and the output signal can be sent to the SCADA, PLC’s, or to a Central Control Room for logging or display on chart recorders or monitors.
