Oil Detectors – Wastewater
Autonomous non-contact sensor for detection of oil on wastewater. Highly accurate, easy to maintain, finds oil spills and leaks early so you can respond faster.
Oil spills entering the drains can seriously jeopardize the operation of wastewater treatment plants. In this case it is crucial to detect the leak early and prevent the oil reaching the aeration tanks, for example. LDIs ROW oil on water detector ensures rapid and safe detection and allows suitable shut off at the inlet. The sensors are non-contact which reduces the risk of sensor fouling or false alarms. They are available in both Ex and safe area versions.
With the ROW’s optical technology for non-contact monitoring, there is no marine biofouling or oil contaminating the sensor. This limits the need for regular cleaning.

24/7 Operation Even in Harsh Environments
Available in anodised aluminium, 316 stainless steel and EXd enclosures for even the toughest applications.
Long Life, Low Maintenance
Robust IP68 certified hermetic design and 5 year LED lifetime. Low power consumption of < 2W with optional remote operation using solar panels battery.
Non-Contact Detection Instrument
Easier installation, no water contamination and no maintenance.
To detect oil slicks as thin as a single micron from up to 10m above the water, the ROW pulses a UV beam at the surface and excites any oil molecules in the target area. Using oil’s native fluorescence, ROW is calibrated to identify the specific wavelength signal of oil and send out an alert.
After 20 years of developing remote-sensing systems, LDI has mastered the technology better than anyone else.
Industry-leading Sensitivity – 1µm
Advanced software algorithms are calibrated to detect oil down to single-micron layers and minimise false alarms.
