The Rivertrace Smart-Cell Bilge Alarm meets the requirements of MEPC 107 (49) for the monitoring of three oil types: fuel oil, diesel and emulsions. By utilising the Smart-Cell Detector Array Technology, developed by Rivertrace, the Bilge Alarm analyses all three oil types simultaneously without the need for re-calibration. Since optical cell fouling is recognised as a leading cause of monitor malfunction or incorrect reading a manual cell cleaning device is included as standard to simplify routine maintenance. By simple operation of the manual clean device, the Smart-Cell remains in optimum operating condition.
Rivertrace Smart ODME - Monitor, record and control ballast discharge to MEPC 108(49) requirements
The Oil Discharge Monitoring Equipment (Smart ODME) has been designed to provide means of monitoring, recording and controlling the ballast discharge in accordance with the requirements of MEPC 108(49). Discharge limits are set at 30 litres per nautical mile, and the total discharge is expressed as a proportion of the previous cargo for dirty ballast. The requirements of the MARPOL Convention are that all oil tankers with a gross tonnage of 150 GRT and above must have an oil discharge monitoring and control system installed, incorporating an approved oil content meter, with a starting interlock and an automatic overboard valve control system. The Smart ODME includes all components required to meet MEPC 108(49) and is designed for ease of installation and maintenance. The requirements in IMO Resolution MEPC 108(49) apply to tankers with a date of keel laying or equivalent stage of construction of 1st January 2005 or later.
The SmartSafe ORB (oil record book) Bilge overboard Security System was developed in response to our customers' worldwide requests and requirements. This system records the oily water discharge process of any Oil Water Separator (IMO - MEPC 60.33 or 107.49) thus avoiding the common mistakes of manual entries and log variations in the oil record book. These errors are an easy target for Port State Control and other Marine Enforcing Agencies.
The CS Series Oily Water Separator units are suitable for use on board vessels such as chemical, oil and product tankers, passenger and RO-RO ferries, workboats, offshore service vessels, warships, cruise ships, superyachts and fast patrol craft.
Our units are used to separate oil from bilge water to the required international standard of 15 ppm (parts per million) oil content before discharge overboard and to maintain a cleaner marine environment, aiding the preservation of marine life throughout the world’s oceans and seas.
