4100-HCF Oil Thickness Monitor

4100-HCF Oil Thickness Monitor


The 4100-HCF Oil Thickness Monitor provides continuous monitoring of separated oil thickness on a water surface. The 4100-HCF monitors a floating sensor on the water surface to indicate the thickness of separated oil. An LCD display of the thickness, analog output and relay alarms are standard.

The 4100-HCF float sensor monitors the capacitance field of the water surface. As the oil accumulates on the surface, the sensor capacitance changes. This interface signal is used to provide outputs, displays and relay control.

Optional Interfaces
  • Analog Output 4-20 mA non-isolated
  • Communication RS-485 Modbus

*NEW* 4-20 mA Analog input for level monitor
