METPOINT OCV is the first TÜV-certified* online system for the detection of the oil vapour content in compressed air. The measuring system can be used to protect the production or products. The obtained data are used for both the documentation of the compressed-air quality and the identification of contamination sources.
Compressed air which is contaminated by oil is a danger for production plants, the environment or even for health. "Oil-free" compressors are no guarantor for "oil-free" compressed air because of the ambient air/induction air. In most cases, a certain residual oil content cannot be entirely avoided in standard applications. Precise monitoring of the oil vapour content which is possible at all times is therefore all the more important.
Compressed air gains in safety: oil-free through monitoring
The analysis and control of the compressed-air quality are of decisive importance for the product, in particular in sensitive production processes of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, in food production and in surface technology.
METPOINT OCV continuously monitors the residual oil content of the flowing compressed air. Analyses down to a range of thousandth mg/m3 residual oil content can be continuously monitored online and during running operation. Samplings and time-consuming laboratory analyses are no longer required. The system is network-compatible, has a touchscreen display and offers continuous process safety. The acquisition costs of a METPOINT OCV system are insignificant compared with the consequential costs of a production stop.
