Oil & Gas
Pro Analysis Argus® Oil-in-Water (OiW) Monitors are specifically designed to detect and measure the presence of hydrocarbon components in water discharge.
Reliable and continuous measurements of oil in water are crucial for monitoring the discharge of pollutants and other materials into the sea, as well as for ensuring compliance with regulations.
Argus® OiW Monitors use advanced technology such as Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) to detect trace amounts of oil and other hydrocarbons in water, and can provide real-time data on the concentration of these materials in the discharge.
This helps to ensure compliance with regulations and permits regarding the discharge of pollutants into the sea, and can also help identify any issues or leaks in the discharge system that need to be addressed.
Additionally, by continuously monitoring the discharge, these monitors can provide valuable data on the long-term impacts of the discharge on the marine environment.
Unmanned platforms with a typical maintenance frequency of every 12 months are dependent on accurate and reliable measurement systems.
Pro Analysis Argus® Turbidity/TSS Monitors are well suited for these applications, such as cooling systems on converter stations.
There are several cooling systems used, one of them being water (seawater). There is a need to measure the content of seawater used for cooling, such as algae, biological material, and other pollutants (particles). In general, it is important that the water is clean to avoid wear and tear on pumps and equipment.
Seawater/cooling water may have been exposed to chlorination so that both particle measurement and measurement of chlorine compounds may become relevant when the water is released back into the sea. Chlorine is used for disinfection to, among other things, eliminate growth.
Online monitoring systems can be used to monitor the discharge of pollutants and other materials into the sea.
These systems typically involve the use of sensors and other monitoring equipment that are placed in or near the discharge point, and are connected to a remote monitoring system that allows operators to monitor the discharge in real-time.
The data collected by these systems can be used to ensure compliance with regulations and to identify any issues that may need to be addressed. Additionally, this data can be used to track the impacts of discharge on the marine environment over time.
