Oil Detection Sump Systems

SJE Oil Spotter™ System Designed for Elevator Sump Applications


SJE-Rhombus®, industry leader in providing quality control solutions for water and wastewater applications, presents SJE Oil Spotter™ control panel for elevator sump applications. Oil Spotter™ 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.

SJE Oil Spotter™ features 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).

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.

When oil is present, typically in an elevator sump pit, these systems detect it, sound an alarm and prevent the sump pump from discharging undesireable oil and water into the watershed

Hydromaitc ODS Series is approved for oil and water detection in application where hydrocarbons are prohibited from being released into the environment. This system is designed to provide accurate pumping, monitoring and alarm in garges, elevator sump pits, transformer vaults and asubstations. The elevator pump control activated th epump for removal of water from elevator pits in accordance with ASME17.1. The control will also shut down the pump before discharging harmful substances.

Includes control panel with separate pump, and control circuits, NEMA1 enclosure,

Oil Smart detects the presence of oil in a sump pit, shuts off the pump and sounds an alarm. This prevents inadvertent pumping of oils or other contaminants into the watershed. SeeWater Oil Smart is useful in applicatins such as sump pits in elevator shafts where, at times, hydraulic oil may be present.
