Chelsea Technologies offer both stationary in-line and portable algae monitoring systems.
In-line monitoring stations systems can be easily fitted within Water Treatment Plants, either connected into a piped system or monitoring within a water trough.
Portable systems are also available which are light weight, easy to operate and designed to take into the field to measure algae concentrations directly within rivers, reservoirs and lakes and compared directly against measurements taken within the in-line systems at the Water Treatment Plant.
These systems provide real-time display and logging of key algae parameters necessary for water quality monitoring and the management of a water treatment process. Useful Red, Amber, Green threshold levels can be easily set up, and the display provides both graphical and numerical formats. These systems include the Chelsea Technologies’ UniLux or TriLux fluorometers, which are miniature, low power and easily integrated to other sensor network systems. As well as being very sensitive, these fluorometer sensors are optimised to provide low noise results.
Just launched this month is the new VLux MiniSonde – a miniature, cost effective, multi-parameter sensor providing robust data collection for either UV or visible fluorescence monitoring. With integrated corrections for multiple environmental parameters, models are suitable for monitoring BTEX, PAH, Tryptophan and Algae.
