White Paper: Choosing the Right Technology
In both marine and industrial environments, choosing the wrong oil-in-water monitoring technology can have a dramatic impact on cost, maintenance demands and the accuracy of monitoring.
Each application has different demands, constraints and challenges. It is important to choose the right technology for your application and the conditions under which the measurements are made. For example, if you are measuring oil-in-water to monitor environmental compliance onboard a vessel you will have a different set of needs than if you were measuring to optimise processes in upstream oil and gas or working with other oil field chemicals.
There are four main optical-based oil-on-water technologies which each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Rivertrace has published a white paper intended to help shipowners understand the optical technologies available and choose the best solution for their application.
