The MS1700 is an on-line oil in water monitor designed to detect and measure hydrocarbon concentrations in water up to 100 mg/l in industrial processes, refineries and petrochemical complexes.
Using a state of the art contactless technology the MS1700 provides a solution that is not affected by turbidity and can detect all the volatile hydrocarbons independently from their fluorescence properties.
- Oil detection in Cooling Water
- Oil detection in produced water
- Detection of phenols in discharge water
- Effluent monitoring
- Pre-filtration monitoring
- Oil in wastewater
- Filter protection
Features and benefits
- No sensor contact with water: low maintenance, no sensor cleaning
- Measures both Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) and VOCs
- Electronic Nose: not affected by turbidity
- Can be calibrated for specific substances: used to monitor known spills
- Catches fluorescent and non-fluorescent compounds
- Alarms to SCADA and other communication interfaces

The MS1700 oil in water monitor is designed to detect concentrations of up to 100 mg/l and it’s used in a variety of applications such as:
Oil in cooling water
Hydrocarbons are an ever present class of compounds in industrial processes, factories and industrial plants of all sorts. A leaking piece of equipment, a corroded heat exchanger, a leaking diesel pump or simply an accidental spill can mean that cooling water gets contaminated with hydrocarbons. When this happens an oil in water analyzer, like the MS1700, can help to detect contamination in the cooling water early on before it creates major issues.
Phenols are widely used in industry as one of the starting material to produce plastics, explosives and drugs, however, they can be harmful for the environment and companies that deal with phenols need to comply with very strict emission limits.
Wherever water and hydrocarbons get mixed together in a process (refineries, petrochemical processes etc) there is a need to treat this water before it’s used further down in the process or discharged into the environment. This influent water has usually got high levels of hydrocarbon and, depending on the incoming level, the treatment can be optimised.
