SJE-Rhombus® Expands Oil Detection Product Line with the New SJE Oil Spotter™ Control and Alarm System.
SJE-Rhombus®, an industry leader in providing quality control solutions for residential and commercial water/wastewater applications, expands their oil detection product line with the new SJE Oil Spotter™ Auto control and alarm system which is designed to monitor and control one single phase pump in water/oil environments.
SJE Oil Spotter™ system employs two terminal blocks; one for one 120 VAC pump, a 120 VAC oil containment valve and a 120 VAC water drain valve and another terminal block for wiring the SJE Oil Spotter™ Auto probe, high water alarm float and auxiliary alarm connection. The panel includes a Auto/Hand pump switch and Water/Oil Drain selection switch (functions in Hand mode only).
In normal operation, the pump will turn on and off as the water level activates the probes (5 inch pump range). If the water level rises enough to activate the high water probe, a red indicator will illuminate and activate the auxiliary contacts. If the oil level reaches the high oil float, a red indicator will illuminate and activate the auxiliary contacts; the pump energizes along with the valves to automatically remove contaminated water/oil into the appropriate holding vessel. In Hand operation (spring loaded) the operator can manually pump out the water/oil from the pit. The valve selection switch allows the operator to choose if the valves are activated or not.
The SJE Oil Spotter™ Auto control panel features a NEMA 1 rated enclosure for indoor use and includes LED indicators for high water (red), high oil (red), pump run (green), and power (green). The Oil Water Switch includes a high oil float, high water probe, start probe, stop probe and reference probe. The entire system is UL/cUL Listed and helps satisfy the requirements of an ASME A17.1 compliant system. Common applications include elevator sump basins, transformer vaults, leachate well applications or garages. This system is backed by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty.
