Chelsea Technologies offer sensors and portable systems for algae, hydrocarbon and bacteria monitoring within catchments. Portable systems are light weight, easy to operate and designed to take into the field to measure either algae, hydrocarbons or bacteria concentrations within the water catchment. These systems provide real-time display and logging of either algae, hydrocarbon or bacteria to inform on water quality. 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’ TriLux and UviLux fluorometers, which are small, 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.
