Horiba’s OCMA-500 and OCMA-550 oil measurement instruments, available from Paul N. Gardner Company Inc., feature improved features for operability in drain monitoring and quality control applications. While the two series differ somewhat, both units can measure any oil with low boiling without the need for a solvent evaporation process.

The OCMA-500 can be used to measure concentration of oil contained in drainage and environmental water. After injecting the water sample and solvent, the system automatically conducts the monitoring operation from oil extraction to sample measurement and draining. Without the need to open or close the drainage valve, operations like these go faster. Other features include an LED-backlit extraction tank to check phase separation and set the extraction time and alternate measuring modes to allow for either automatic or manual operation at any time.

The OCMA-550 can be used to measure residual oil on components and concentrations of oil adhered on solids such as soil. Measurement requires only that the operator inject the extracted water sample into the attached cell and set it to the equipment. Other features include a timer function to display a measurement value at a set time and a detachable cell designed for easy door opening and closing.
