OILVIEWER represents a notable leap forward in real-time oil spill detection technology. Engineered for continuous and automated monitoring of water and ground surfaces, it employs specialized fluorescence detection under UV light emissions.

This innovative approach enables OILVIEWER to identify the distinct signature of oil, while effectively filtering out other materials in its surveillance area. The high level of precision ensures minimal false alarms, solidifying OILVIEWER as the leading option for swift and reliable oil spill detection.

  • Utilizes optical UV fluorescence calibrated specifically for detecting oil products, ensuring no false alarms.
  • This innovative technology is capable of contactless detection of oil spills as thin as 10 μm up to a distance of 10 meters. 
  • Its design ensures it is highly compact, lightweight, and easily set up remotely for simple installation.
  • Furthermore, it is compatible with various types of water sources, such as rainwater, condensation, or sea water.
  • Incorporates automatic self-diagnostic capabilities for continuous 24/7/365 operation.
  • Requires minimal maintenance and boasts low operational costs (UV light replacement recommended every 5 years at most).
  • Comes in an IP68-rated enclosure; Atex enclosure option is also available.
  • Can operate independently or as part of a networked system. For enhanced monitoring of multiple OilViewer units and pinpointing the exact source of an alarm, our Multiple OilViewer Monitoring Software (MOMS) is offered.
