The Shimadzu ET-35A Oil Content Meter is a device used in the marine industry to measure the oil content in bilge water, ballast water, and other types of wastewater discharged from ships. The meter is designed to meet the requirements of international regulations, such as MARPOL Annex I, which set limits on the discharge of oil and other pollutants into the sea.
The ET-35A Oil Content Meter uses a fluorescence method to measure the concentration of oil in water. The meter is equipped with a sample cell that contains a fluorescent material and a light source that emits ultraviolet light. When oil is present in the sample, it absorbs the ultraviolet light and emits fluorescent light, which is detected by a sensor in the meter. The intensity of the fluorescent light is proportional to the concentration of oil in the sample, allowing the meter to provide an accurate measurement of the oil content.
Some of the key features of the Shimadzu ET-35A Oil Content Meter include:
Overall, the Shimadzu ET-35A Oil Content Meter is a reliable and accurate tool for monitoring the oil content in wastewater discharged from ships, helping to ensure compliance with international regulations and reduce the environmental impact of shipping activities.
