ROW Aluminium

ROW is a non-contact sensor for detecting oil on water. Highly accurate and easy to maintain, it detects and alerts you to unsuspecting oil spills. It provides 24/7 industrial and environmental water monitoring, whether at effluent discharge or influent intake points.

Day or night, in arctic cold or scorching heat, ROW helps you pinpoint the polluter, act and avoid lasting damage.

Robust IP68 certified hermetic design and 5-year LED lifetime. Low power consumption of <2W with optional remote operation using solar panels and battery.

Easier installation, no water contamination and no maintenance.

Refined for over 20 years in research and development, ROW’s photo-optics can detect oil films down to a 1μm layer, while minimising false alarms.
