The new AFRISO HMS Fuel Oil Alarm is designed to detect fuel oil in rooms and drip pans, manhole pits, pipe or cable ducts as well as pump and control stations.
The HMS Fuel Oil Alarm consists of a connector housing with integrated transducer and power outlet (e.g. for connection of an oil pump) and an optoelectronic probe which is available with a cable length of 0.75 m or 2 m, depending on the application requirements. Spare probes with cable lengths of 10 m or 30 m are optionally available. The HMS Fuel Oil Alarm is plugged into a 230 V outlet; it is suitable for rooms with an ambient temperature between -10 °C and +60 °C. The probe is mounted at the lowest point of the area to be monitored (lying or suspended). If there is no leak, the green lamp is on. If the infrared probe is submerged in a liquid, the outlet (max. switching capacity 1800 VA at AC 230 V) immediately switches off and the red alarm lamp lights up. Accumulations of oil are reliably detected at a level of approx. 4 mm and higher. No alarm is triggered in case of a power failure. When mains power is available again, the device immediately resumes operation. If a leak has occurred in the meantime, this is indicated. The system provides excellent protection against environmental damage and the resulting high costs. The HMS Fuel Oil Alarm is easy and fast to commission.
HMS detects fuel oil EL, L, M, diesel oil and low-viscosity lubricating oil (group A III and danger class A III), motor oil, gearbox oil, hydraulic oil, machine oil and hydraulic oil.
HMS has the Technical Approval Z-65.40-214 of the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt).
The AFRISO HMS Fuel Oil Alarm is easy and fast to install, monitors rooms for oil leakage and provides excellent protection against environmental damage and the resulting costs.
