Chelsea Technologies Group’s UV AquaTracka is a submersible fluorometer to monitor the concentration of refined hydrocarbons or crude hydrocarbons in a wide range of applications including marine science, environmental & process control. In support of this, it has been designed to be deployed from gliders, undulating vehicles, moored profiling systems or flow-through.
UV AquaTracka detects UV fluorescence. When dissolved compounds that are of a fluorescent nature absorb UV light they re-emit a fraction of this energy as fluorescence at longer wavelengths. Fluorescence intensity is directly proportional to concentration. The technique is widely recognised as one of the most sensitive detection methods available.
