Environmental: Dye Tracing (Rhodamine, Fluorescein) using UniLux Dye Tracing Sensor

Monitoring the dilution and movement of a tracer introduced into water provides an excellent means of determining the path that may be followed by a discharge and the rate at which dilution is likely to take place. Fluorescent dyes such as Rhodamine and Fluorescein are the most frequently used tracers for such investigations.  Chelsea Technologies has been providing dye tracing systems since 1982. 


Typical applications include:

  • Monitoring within water treatment plants during commissioning operations
  • Discharge monitoring into rivers and estuaries
  • Leak detection
  • Cross-contamination
  • Borehole connectivity
  • Dye tracing

Product of choose:

UniLux Fluorometer: Low cost miniaturised, digital fluorometers to monitor Chlorophyll a, Phycoerythrin, Rhodamine WT, Phycocyanin, Fluoroscein or Nephelometer.UniLux dye Tracing: Dye tracing operations are common in determining water retention and flow in newly commissioned or modified Waste Water Treatment Works.  CTG can offer portable systems based on the UniLux in situ fluorometer configured to measure common dyes used in such practices as Rhodamine WT or Fluorescein.   The high sensitivity obtained from these sensors allows for minimum volumes and concentrations of these chemicals to be introduced to the plant.
