Bilge Alarm Calibration

Exclusive Authorized Canadian Service and Calibration Agent

Instructions to send DECKMA Bilge Alarms for calibration.

Keeping your bilge treatment system accurate

Since Canada introduced the 5ppm oil content for bilge water discharges into Canadian inland waters, Transport Canada Inspectors require annual confirmation of the good performance of the bilge alarm. To satisfy this requirement Hermont was the first Canadian supplier of bilge alarms to offer annual calibration of the Bilge Alarm we supply.

MARPOL MEPC.107 (49):
4.2.11 The accuracy of the 15 ppm Bilge Alarms should be checked at IOPP Certificate renewal surveys according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Alternatively the unit may be replaced by a calibrated 15 ppm Bilge Alarm. The calibration certificate for the 15 ppm Bilge Alarm, certifying date of last calibration check, should be retained onboard for inspection purposes. The accuracy checks can only be done by the manufacturer or persons authorized by the manufacturer.

Bilge-Alarm.jpgHermont is the only authorized company with trained and qualified technicians to perform calibrations on Deckma bilge alarms in Canada. Hermont is also equipped with a manufacturer approved calibration test bench and calibration measuring cell provided by Deckma.

The MEPC.107 (49) Bilge Alarm can only be opened up by the manufacturer. To offer short turn-around times, Hermont keeps on hand exchange measuring cells for the MEPC.107(49) required reparation and calibration.
