Hydrocarbon UV Fluorometer Marine Tech

Hydrocarbon UV Fluorometer
ffor polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
Application example:
Time series oil detection
in Brasil, 2008

• resolution 0.01 μg/l Fluorometric methods are widely Typical applications include:
Range I 0–50, 0–500 μg/l used in environmental monitoring, • crude oil detection, leakage control
naphtalene analytical chemistry, limnological and at offshore oil pipelines with remote
Range II 0–500, 0–5000 μg/l oceanographic biology. Online fluo- operated vehicles (ROV)
naphtalene rometers allow continuous measure- • monitoring of organic fluorescent
• analog output 0–10 Volt/ ments and nondestructive sampling in agents (humic acids, amino acids,
4–20 mA combination with high specificity and BTXE and polycyclic aromatic
• depth range up to 500 m, low detection limits. In order to meet hydrocarbons)
optional up to 2000 m most requirements, the instrument • supervision and online control
• titanium housing is light and compact designed and of fresh water in waterworks
• automatic compensation capable to work on the water surface and boreholes
of dropping flash intensity as well as up to 500m (2000m) • monitoring of waste water in
• flash lamp control water depth. It can be powered by industrial and municipal sewage
