The New SJE Oil Spotter™ System Provides Pump and Alarm Notification in Elevator Sump Applications
SJE-Rhombus®, an industry leader in providing quality control solutions for water and wastewater applications, introduces the SJE Oil Spotter™ control panel for elevator sump applications. The SJE Oil Spotter™ system is designed to provide pump and alarm notification of potentially threatening water and oil levels in simplex pumping applications, including elevator sump basins, transformer vaults, leachate well applications, garages or any application requiring ASME A17.1 compliance.
This system features a factory-installed Oil Water Switch with four probes (start level, stop level, high water level, and reference for ground) and a mechanical high oil alarm float. As water and oil enter the tank, the oil rises to create a floating layer on top of the water. The water level rises to reach the Start Probe, activating the pump to remove water (not the oil) from the tank. It continues pumping until the water level falls below the Stop Probe, deactivating the pump. If the water level continues to rise and reaches the High Water Probe, the red high water LED indicator illuminates and auxiliary contacts close (activating an optional Tank Alert® alarm or other remote device). If the oil level rises to activate the mechanical High Oil Float, the red high oil LED indicator illuminates and auxiliary contacts close (activating an optional Tank Alert® alarm or other remote device).
The SJE Oil Spotter™ control panel enclosure is NEMA 1 rated for indoor use and features a receptacle to accept a 120V, 15A pump plug. LED indicators on the front door of the panel illuminate for high water, high oil, pump run and power on. Auxiliary contacts are included to connect remote alarms (high water and high oil), auto dialer or building automation system. UL/cUL Listed and backed by a three-year limited warranty.
