Since the 1960's, QMI has developed a reputation for providing reliable, innovative and proven products. The Oil Mist Detection and Monitoring Systems for the crankcases of Diesel Engines were developed in the mid-80's at the request of key shipping clients. QMI products provide fast response, no false alarms and are simple to install on new or existing vessels.
65% of fires at sea are the result of oil mist leaks from areas where lubricating, fuel, or hydraulic oils are under pressure causing a fine mist to collect in the atmosphere leading to a fire.
The QMI Crankcase Monitoring System has a two stage alarm: early warning and main alarm with slow or shut down facility. Additionally, it has a Self Diagnostic instrument fault finding system. While the Triplex Atmospheric oil mist systems for smaller applications identify a hazardous build-up of oil mist in confined areas; steering gear compartments, generator rooms, and main engine room spaces.
