The ORGS 11-2 oil detector is used for monitoring cooling water for oil contamination, e.g. due to leakage. When an alarm and control unit is connected downstream, the cooled plants are protected and oil contamination prevented.
This system basically detects all matter that is not water-soluble, does not emulsify, is lighter than water and is less electrically conductive than water. Anti-rust oils that are emulsified in the cooling water do not trigger an alarm. The system is self-monitoring on the principle of no-voltage release, i.e. an alarm is triggered in the event of a malfunction. Approved by Germanischer Lloyd (GL).
