The SMART PFM is a distinctive analyser that uses microscopy to measure the oil content in a sample and is approved to MEPC.107(49).

The monitor measures particulates in the sample stream on a continuous basis by passing the process fluid through a proprietary photo optical measuring cell developed by Rivertrace.

Using a combination of optical recognition algorithms and light intensity it is possible to differentiate between Oil particles, Gas/Air Bubbles and Solid particulates in the range 1-500 microns. Flow and particulate characteristics can be visualised live via the 7” display.

Oil concentration, pressure, temperature and oil alarm status are displayed on an HD touchscreen. Oil concentrations, alarms and fault log are stored within the system to comply with the reporting requirements of IMO resolution MEPC.107(49) and can be downloaded onto a pc via LAN or USB for further analysis.

The SMART PFM 107 offers a choice of auto cleaning methods to ensure the accuracy is maintained at all times. The cleaning is fully automatic and operates whenever it senses contamination of the optical windows.

  • Oil type independent
  • Solid discrimination to MEPC.107(49)
  • Uses Microscopy to measure oil content
  • Automatic cleaning of the optical cell
  • 7″ full colour touch screen.
  • Camera display to view contaminants within the sample.
  • Drill Rig Slop Tanks
  • Oily Water Separator Discharge
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Produced Water Discharge
  • Hazardous Environments (Zone 1 & 2) – The SMART PFM can be offered in an explosion proof cabinet
  • Sample Conditioning – the SMART PFM can be packaged as a system with sample conditioning equipment to suit the application
  • Marine and Industrial versions of the SMART PFM can be offered. The industrial version allows for variable alarm points
