Smart Seal Alarm
The Tides Marine Smart Seal is a monitoring and alarm system which will detect excessive increases in operating temperature in a SureSeal shaft seal. If the cooling water supply to the shaft seal head becomes blocked or interrupted the solid state sensor attached the water injection fitting quickly picks this up and provides a visual and audible alarm to prevent damage to the shaft seal unit.
With dedicated control panels for single or twin engine installations and a simple ‘plug and play’ wiring system, Smart Seal can be fitted to both existing and new build SureSeals very easily. The control panel has a self diagnostic test function and an optional remote panel (weatherproof for flybridge mounting) or an external warning siren can be added to the standard system for larger vessels. An output to an on-board warning / monitoring system is also available when required.
Fitting a Smart Seal Alarm system also extends the standard SureSeal warranty from 2 years to a total of 5 years – subject to installation review by Tides Marine. Suitable for 12v or 24v DC power supply, the control panel is a flush design to offer engine room or helm station mounting options.
