Chelsea Technologies Group has a range of fluorometers available to measure the fluorescence of algae, dyes and pollutants in the water. These measurements can be used for dye tracing studies, turbidity dredge monitoring, pollutant tracing, or estimating concentrations of phytoplankton and cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) for bloom predictions. The parameters measured include Chlorophyll, blue-green algae, dissolved organic matter, Rhodamine WT, Fluorescein, Phycocyanin, Phycoerythrin, Optical Brighteners, Crude & Refined Hydrocarbons, CDOM, dyes and Tryptophan.
UniLux Algae,Fluorometer: Low cost miniaturised, digital fluorometers to monitor Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin Cyanobacteria, Phycocyanin Cyanobacteria or turbidity.
UniLux Dye Tracing Fluorometer: Low cost miniaturised, digital fluorometers to monitor Rhodamine WT and Fluoroscein
TriLux Algae Fluorometer: Low cost multi-parameter digital fluorometers capable of monitoring three different parameters in a single probe (combinations of Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin, Phycocyanin and Turbidity)
UviLux Fluorometer: Digital in-situ & in-line UV fluorometers to monitor in real-time concentrations of refined & crude hydrocarbons, CDOM, Tryptophan-like fluorescence (TLF), BOD or Optical Brighteners.
TurbiLux IR Turbidity Fluorometer: Sensitive, low cost digital IR turbidity sensor designed for compliancy with ISO 7027:1999 standard.
AquaTracka III Fluorometer: The industry standard fluorometer enables real-time, highly sensitive, in-situ detection of Chlorophyll a, tracer dyes or turbidity
UV AquaTracka Fluorometer: The industry standard fluorometer enables highly sensitive real-time in-situ detection of crude or refined hydrocarbons (PAH) or CDOM.
Subsea Leak Detection: A range of new systems for rapid detection of leaks from subsea structures based on the industry standard CTG AquaTracka. These systems detect fluorescence of either hydrocarbon directly, or standard products with added fluorophors and have been optimised for minimal interference from turbidity.
Act2-based laboratory and FerryBox systems: Act2 & the FastOcean FRR fluorometer can be combined to produce a highly automated system for probing oxygenic photosynthesis by phytoplankton
FastOcean APD System: Automous profiling system using synchronised ambient plus dark FastOcean multi-wavelength FRR fluorometers to estimate primary productivity.
ALGAE-Station & ALGAE-Station Pro: Collects, logs and instantly displays key Chlorophyll data necessary for the management of water treatment processes
ALGAE-Wader & ALGAE-Wader Pro: Collects, logs and instantly displays key Chlorophyll data for in situ water quality monitoring
BACTI-Station & BACTI-Station Pro: These systems allow laboratory managers, process scientists and engineers to assess real-time levels of bacteria in water systems. This is achieved by detecting UV Tryptophan fluorescence, which has been shown to correlate with bacterial levels.
BACTI-Wader & BACTI-Wader Pro: These systems allow surveyors and regulators to assess real-time, in situ levels of bacteria in water systems. This is achieved by detecting UV Tryptophan fluorescence, which has been shown to correlate with bacterial levels.
OIL-Station & OIL Station Pro: Provides process engineers and site managers with real-time measurements of dissolved Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) in laboratory or process control environments
OIL-Wader & OIL Wader Pro: Provides surveyors and regulators with highly sensitive, real-time in situ measurements of dissolved Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH)
BOD-Station & BOD Station Pro: Provides real-time, highly sensitive assessment of Biological Oxygen Demand within water systems, informing on the impact of biodegradable substances.
BOD-Wader & BOD Wader Pro: Provides real-time, highly sensitive in situ assessment of Biological Oxygen Demand within water systems, informing on the impact of biodegradable substances.
CDOM-Station & CDOM-Station Pro: These systems allow utility operation managers, process scientists and engineers to assess real-time levels of coloured dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in water systems.
Cross-Check & Cross-Check Pro: Portable sensing system for detecting and tracing sewer misconnections in waste water pipes and waterways. This is achieved using UV fluorescence to detect either Tryptophan, which correlates with faecal contamination, and/or Optical Brighteners associated with household detergents.
