Laser scanning Oil Film Detector LO-300

Laser scanning Oil Film Detector LO-300

Oil film detector LO-200 scans water surface with the laser and detects the film of oil.Because the oil is more reflective than the water, the intensity of light reflected from the oil will be greater than that from water surface.The LO-200 detects floating oil by sensing the difference in the intensity of reflection.
As compared with spotlight-based systems, The LO-200 adopted laser scanning method enables to operate more reliable against water surface level fluctuation, and widen distance between the water surface and the detector.

  • Usable with large water level fluctuation
    The laser scanning will detect oil on water surfaces between 30 cm and 3 m from the detector, enabling use where there are surface waves or water level fluctuations.

  • Avoiding false alarms
    False alarms due to waves or reflective floating matter can be avoided by adjusting the continuous detection time.

  • Resistance to interference from ambient light
    Modulated light and a band-pass optical filter are used to eliminate interference from sunlight and other ambient.

  • Flexible application
    In addition to detection of a film of oil or other liquid on water surfaces, the unit may be used for detection of oil, water, or other liquid on dry surfaces.

  • Easy to maintain
    No adjustment necessary when the scanner unit is replaced.

  • Easy to install
    The optical module is emplaced on a free-hanging assembly so that it corrects itself the optical axis to true vertical and does not require realignment if the unit shifts after installation.
