Hi, i also have the same problem with my HFO separator OSE -10. Unfortunately, i still dont know what is the main cause.
I found out that the SMS Actual pressure is going down thus, triggering to desludge the bowl earlier than the set desludge time. I thought that the problem is with the pressure transmitter PT2 but the problem still persists when we changed with new one. We cleaned the bowl parts and changed new gaskets but still the same. Please let me know if you have any idea on how to solve this issue. Thank you
