Remote Optical Watcher – ROW is an autonomous non-contact sensor that detects oil on water in real time. It uses oil’s natural fluorescence to detect anything from marine diesel to vegetable oil to jet fuel, and alerts you immediately. Highly accurate and easy to maintain, the ROW finds oil spills fast for an early response.
- Sensitivity: > 1 μm
- Power: < 2W
- Range: up to 10 m

We have expanded our ROW hydrocarbon detector applications beyond just shipping ports or oil & gas facilities. Ports now include airports and oil & gas now include offshore, off-grid buoy installations. The water sector including waste water or drinking water treatment facilities are a big bulk of our customers.
Likewise, the power sector including thermal or hydroelectric facilities uses our ROWs to control their heavy machinery from lubricant oil leaks. Then finally, there are the truly unique applications in beverage bottling plants or cement factories and just about any facility that uses water.
