Micro filtration and monitoring in one
Fugro purchased RMF “smart” offline filters to be mounted to the central hydraulics system of it’s newly build survey vessels, the Searcher & Galaxy. The central hydraulic system drives the deck equipment such as A-Frame and winches.
On top of the hydraulic tank of the hydraulic power unit a RMF offline filter OLUS was installed, the filter unit acts as a kidney loop continuously pumping a small amount of oil through extreme fine filters which remove both solid particles and water.
In addition the filter is equipped with a RMF Contamination Monitoring Sensor which reports oil cleanliness and water content.
The RMF Contamination Monitoring Sensor is connected to the ships AMS system (Alarm Monitoring System). Any possible increase in contamination, temperature or water ingress is detected after which immediate action can be taken.
Based on the positive experience on these ships the Fugro Brasilis, currently under construction, is also equipped with the RMF offline filter OLUS.
