OIL MIST DETECTION
Crankcase explosions due to ignition of oil mist can be
disastrous to both crew and vessel, so marine safety equipment
on board must be capable of dealing with a possible
hazard in seconds. The disaster on the Reina del Pacifico in
1947 where 28 people were killed by simultaneous explosion
in all engines the British Ship Research Association as a
result of this asked Graviner to develop a system to mitigate
the problem and so the oil Mist detection system was born.
Since then the Graviner Oil Mist Detector System has been
used to monitor oil mist levels on many thousands of
merchant ships and has been supplied to almost every
ship-owning nation. To do this, we develop and supply
advanced fire and safety products and systems, supported
by first class service.
