TD-4100 XD oil content monitor
The TD-4100 XD is a rugged, simple and easy to use low maintenance continuous on-line oil content monitor for produced water overboard discharge, bilge water, deck drains and heat exchanger leaks in cooling water or steam condensate.
It uses the principle of UV Fluorescence with high correlation to standard laboratory oil in water analysis methods. These rugged instruments are used in all industries offshore and onshore, from water purification to upstream and downstream oil industry applications. We provide worldwide field service for commissioning and training. For more technology information regarding oil measurement with UV Fluorescence, please visit our web site listed below.
The TD-4100 XD is a very simple self-contained skid mounted oil in water monitor ready to install on skid packages or directly on offshore facilities. No special pumps or mixers are required. Explosion proof options for North American and European standards as well as heaters and coolers allow it to be used on virtually any offshore or onshore oil production facility. Instruments are IMO and USCG certified and carry the CE Mark.
The TD-4100 XDC General Purpose oil-in-water monitor is a less expensive version of the industry-standard TD-4100 XDC, and is designed for general purpose areas (non-explosive atmospheres).
