Kidde / Graviner Oil Mist Detector, MK4, MK5, MK6, MK7

The Graviner Oil Mist Detector (OMD) is an acknowledged industry leader, fitted to countless ships worldwide. The OMD continuously monitors the density of oil mist in the crankcase of a diesel engine and will signal an alarm if the density exceeds a preset threshold. A build up of excessive oil mist, due to an engine fault such as an overheated bearing, could result in a crankcase explosion and at worst, loss of the vessel.

Kidde / Graviner Mark 7 Oil Mist Detector

Kidde Graviner MK7 Oil Mist Detector

System Description
The Mk7 OMD is an auto addressed oil mist detection system capable of monitoring up to 10 detector heads per control unit on up to 10 control units and each detector head monitors a single crank space.

The control unit, which is engine mounted, can be configured to monitor from one to ten detectors. Alarm levels and alarm output requirements are all set from the control unit or from the optional display unit.

The touch screen display shows, on demand, the signal from each detector and indicates the oil mist level for each engine. In the event of an alarm, the display immediately shows the oil mist signals for the relevant engine. Each detector on an engine can be displayed on demand and automatically under alarm conditions.

Ocean Automation Solutions are pleased to announce that the Kidde/Graviner Mark 7 Oil Mist Detector is now available.

The Graviner Mk6 OMD is an analogue addressable oil mist detection system, capable of monitoring up to 64 detector heads fitted on up to 8 engines.

This is achieved without sample pipes and with minimum cabling. Each detector head monitors a single crankspace and is a stand-alone device. When assigned a unique address and supplied with 24V DC it gathers oil mist density data and converts it to a digital signal for transmission via the data cable to the control unit.
