METPOINT OCV: TÜV-certified online system for the measurement of oil vapours

Compressed air which is contaminated by oil is a danger for production plants, the environment or even for health. "Oil-free" compressors are no guarantor for "oil-free" compressed air because of the ambient air/induction air. In most cases, a certain residual oil content cannot be entirely avoided in standard applications. Precise monitoring of the oil vapour content which is possible at all times is therefore all the more important.

METPOINT OCV is the first TÜV-certified* online system for the detection of the oil vapour content in compressed air. The measuring system can be used to protect the production or products. The obtained data are used for both the documentation of the compressed-air quality and the identification of contamination sources.

*METPOINT OCV certified by TÜV Nord in accordance with the requirements of ISO 8573-1, classes 1–4.

METPOINT® OCV compact - even more accurate measuring by utilising more frequent and reduced inspection intervals

The new METPOINT® OCV compact is a further development of the tried and tested METPOINT® OCV. The new compact version retains all the basic functions which were available in the METPOINT® OCV, although the new model now impresses even more with reduced measuring intervals as well as its modular structure. This makes the new device a compact, as well as simultaneously high-performance, alternative for companies which place increased importance on simple assembly and operating capabilities but, at the same time, expect the highest measuring accuracy for the residual oil content in the compressed air. 

  • measurements are executed every 0.4 seconds
  • simple and more flexible handling
  • modular structure implemented in the compact version simplifies assembly on site and also reduces subsequent maintenance costs
  • indicates the operating status and the compliance with the ISO 8573 oil classes

Compressed air gains in safety: oil-free through monitoring

The analysis and control of the compressed-air quality are of decisive importance for the product, in particular in sensitive production processes of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, in food production and in surface technology. 

METPOINT OCV continuously monitors the residual oil content of the flowing compressed air. Analyses down to a range of thousandth mg/m3 residual oil content can be continuously monitored online and during running operation. Samplings and time-consuming laboratory analyses are no longer required. The system is network-compatible, has a touchscreen display and offers continuous process safety. The acquisition costs of a METPOINT OCV system are insignificant compared with the consequential costs of a production stop.

The METPOINT OCV advantages at a glance:

  • Permanent online measurement
  • TÜV-certified measuring method
  • Network-compatible: state-of-the-art IT connection
  • Touchscreen display
