The process monitoring and control instruments are used to monitor specific parameters in processes, from robust processes to delicate processes. Monitoring the processes on board of various types of vessels (tugboats, crane ships, stand alone vessels, etc.) is essential.
We have a wide range of instruments for process monitoring in the marine market, such like tank level measurement, level monitoring systems, pressure gauges, float switches, tacho generators, vibraswitches and hydrometers.
- Tank Level Systems
Tanklevel measurement is used on various types of vessels, from small multi purpose tugboats to huge Crane ships (250 Mega ton). The Selfpowered level monitoring system () can be used for stand alone vessels like effluent tanks. The tank level Bubler system can be fitted with Pressure Gauges ( or ) and/or with an analog output (4/20 mA), so all reliable level information can be integrated into the ships automation system.
- Float switches
For the alarm monitoring systems we have reliable bilge (ITMLS) and for the engine coolant or oil level, the marine style switches (OPC82X) without moving parts.
- The RPM’s of the engine are monitored by the , and displayed in the ship system and/or the local RPM indicator.
- Pressure gauges
The pressure drop over de Turbo inlet filters is measured with special (OPC6114 and OPC611B)
The vibration of the rotating equipment can be monitored with a , which gives an alarm when the vibration exceeds a certain set level.
The water density can be measured with a , which is suitable for fresh and sea water. Oil density can be measured in a similar way with the .
