- Year Founded:
In the early years the initial Rivertrace product range comprised two 15ppm oily water separator monitors, our OCD1 and OCD2 models. These were later joined by the highly sensitive and successful OCD50 series for boiler condensate monitoring.
In 1989 the company expanded into the offshore industry, producing a range of custom-made oil-in-water analysers for a variety of applications. As a result we quickly became a leading supplier to North Sea oilfield operators.
In 1994 the OCD1 and OCD2 were superseded by the OCD1M and OCD2M models. These in turn were replaced by the OCD CM in response to the introduction of IMO resolution MEPC 60(33) in 2000. In 2004 the “Smart-Bilge” monitor was designed and launched to comply with the new IMO resolution MEPC 107 (49) applicable from the 1st January 2005.
In the early 1990s we received numerous requests for oil discharge monitoring systems from clients who thought that existing designs had room for improvement. In conjunction with our customers we drew up the specification for a new ODM that could not only meet IMO regulations, but still improve on the performance of equipment available at that time. The Rivertrace Oil Discharge Monitor OCD10M was launched in late 1995.
As a result of the changes in IMO regulations and the introduction of MEPC 108 (49) – also applicable from 1st January 2005 – a new ‘Smart ODME’ design was introduced featuring advanced measuring principles.
