Chelsea Technologies Fluorimeters Help Monitor Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico

Chelsea’s range of hydrocarbon fluorimeters are being deployed in the Gulf of Mexico to monitor the extent of the oil spill. Originally designed for military use these highly reliable, robust, high sensitivity fluorimeters have a proven track record of detecting crude and refined oils in a wide range of environments.

The UV AQUAtracka and the UviLux are just two of the submersible fluorimeters in Chelsea’s portfolio. These sensors monitor the concentration of refined (360nm) or crude hydrocarbons (450nm) in a range of coastal, oceanographic and fresh water applications. They have been designed to be deployed independently as well as from submersible vehicles, diver held, moored, profiled or as part of a flow through system.

The UV AQUAtracka and the UviLux are just two of the submersible fluorimeters in Chelsea’s portfolio available to monitor the oil spill. These sensors monitor the concentration of refined (360nm) or crude hydrocarbons (450nm) in a range of coastal, oceanographic and fresh water applications.

These robust, compact, lightweight instruments are ideal for both shallow and full ocean depth. They are easy to use and give accurate and repeatable measurements. The Chelsea fluorimeters are also ideally suited for long term deployment and will be used to monitor the extent of the pollution caused after the oil slick has dispersed.

The UV AQUAtracka displays real-time, live data. Similarly, real-time data from the UviLux can be transmitted via a Bluetooth wireless link to either a PDA or a PC, thus giving the user freedom in the field to make high precision measurements anywhere, anytime.
