Every ship has ‘bilges’ – this is space at the lowest point of the vessel between the floor of the engine room and the bottom of the ship. A water/oil mixture collects in this bilge area, where the mixture is pumped out and recovered and separated into water and oil by an on-board skimmer and demulsifying unit. The bilge de-oiling equipment is normally controlled by level switches. The oil sumps of the main engine and any auxiliary systems must also be monitored continuously for safety and environmental reasons.
Maximum safety for humans and the environment
Maintenance-free and reliable operation
Vibrating level switch for point level detection in bilge and oil pan
- Compact design allows installation in almost any position
- Maintenance-free operation, as the vibrating level switch has no mechanical moving parts
- Foam, bubble formation and viscosity do not influence switching accuracy
