Bilge Sentry System Keeps Bilges Dry

press release
Thursday, December 08, 2011

Even the bilges of the most well-made vessels usually collect water or other fluids, resulting in foul odors, accelerated corrosion and an unsightly mess.  The newest product from Delta "T" Systems leaves those problems in the past. 

 

Keeping an eye below deck, the new Arid Bilge Sentry ensures boats stay dry below deck. From a single control box, this system performs two key functions.  First, its keeps all bilge compartments bone dry.  Secondly, it logs and displays the historical data for all of the bilge zones so that irregularly high pumping activity can be investigated and corrected at the source. Keeping track of the pump-out time for each zone provides valuable data that can catch small leaks below deck before they turn into large problems.  This information also serves to prove the long-term integrity of the vessel during a survey for a prospective buyer or insurance event.

 

Simple to install and intuitive to use, the Arid Bilge Sentry system is made up of a central control enclosure, a color touchscreen and up to eight low-water pickups.  The control enclosure can be located in the engine room or elsewhere on board the vessel, and may be powered by 110-220 VAC or 24 VDC. The touchscreen is usually located in the front panel of the control enclosure and used to manage the system.  The low-water pickups are placed at the lowest point of each bilge compartment and only a small 3/16" hose is run back to the control enclosure.


When the system is powered up, it will test each bilge zone for the presence of fluid.  It will then pump out any water and log the time it took to do so.  Once all zones have been checked and pumped out, the system will hibernate for a preselected period of time.  After hibernation, the Arid Bilge Sentry system wakes up and re-tests each zone.  This seamless pattern continues indefinitely.  The display screen shows the system's status at all time and allows for adjustments to most system parameters.  The display screen also serves up warning messages when the system encounters irregularly high amounts of water in the bilge or other issues that require attention.
