Water Condition Monitoring

Offshore platforms und ships have a number of water system on board, that require a constant monitoring.

Potable Water

Offshore installations and vessels have a variety of systems that require monitoring for either optimal performance, meeting current or forthcoming legislation and to minimize the risks for the crew or visitor’s Health and Safety on board. With these in mind, a new range of CMT Marine Water Kits has been developed to assist and adhere with the above requirements

According to the ever changing legislations CMT is permanently updating the range of Marine Water Test Kits to comply with the current legislations.

International regulations regarding the potable Water Quality Monitoring and Control were driven by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and are laid out in the Guide for Ship Sanitation detailing:

  • Systems that require monitoring

  • Method and frequency 

  • The record keeping requirements

Sewage Water

The discharge of raw sewage into the sea can create a health hazard, while in coastal areas sewage can also lead to oxygen depletion and an obvious visual pollution

MARPOL Annex IV contains a set of regulations regarding the discharge of sewage into the sea from ships, including regulations regarding

  • Ship´s equipment and system for the control of sewage discharge

  • Provision of port reception facilities for sewage

  • Compliance with MAROPL Annex IV

Ballast Water

Ballast water exchange is an import process, but it is one which include several complex processes. There are guidelines which need to be followed in order to ensure the water is as safe and hygienic as it can possible be.
The presence of any harmful bacteria, viruses ad invasive species on a ship can have catastrophic effects.

The IMO Ballast Water Convention (2004) specifies three different standards:

  • Ballast Water Exchange Standard

  • Ballast Water Performance Standard

  • Ballast Water Health Standard

Cooling- and Boiler Water

Engine cooling systems contain carefully blended additives that prevent scale deposits and corrosion of engine waterways.

It is very important that the concentration of the additives is maintained at the correct level for optimum protection

  • Helps to maintain optimum operating conditions

  • For rapid corrections

  • Monitor scale and corrosion inhibitor concentrations

Portable Incubator

CMT’s new portable incubator brings lab like conditions to the field of onsite testing of bacterial contamination.

  • Usable in the field and in the lab

  • Real time display of the actual temperature

  • Clear viewing lid

Marine Automatic Fire Sprinkler System

The reliability of an automatic fire sprinkler is very important. To prevent malfunction during an emergency the water inside of the system needs to be monitored to control corrosion and other hazards.

Firefighting produced Foam

The CMT Produced Foam Test Kit has been designed for the validation, testing and calibration of produced fire fighting foam induction systems.

It offers fire safety professionals real time analysis so that the systems being tested are managed and calibrated correct

The Produced Foam Test Kit is suitable for testing to the following International Produced Foam Test Standards: NFPA 11 2002 (paragraphs 10.6.2 and 3) BS5306 It is also suitable for use with AFFF, Protein and AR Foams.

Scrubber Caustic Test Kit

Both IMO and EU policies require ship operators to reduce the sulphur emissions of their ship operations.

Vessels operating in a Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA) need to use either low sulphur distillate fuels or have an approved exhaust gas treatment system installed onboard to capture sulphur emissions.

Cutting Fluid

Cutting fluids are required in metal machining to improve tool life, reduce work piece thermal deformation, enhance surface finish and to flush chips from the cutting zone. These fluids degrade with time due to bacterial growth and contamination with tramp oil. Testing is not just essential, its required!

  • Compliant with Health and Safety legislation

  • Simple step-by-step instructions

  • Safely controls microbiological contamination.
