fluorometer Applications

  • Oil in Water Monitoring

    Detection of hydrocarbons within both water sources and effluent intake to Waste Water Treatment Works is an increasing requirement. The UviLux Hydrocarbon fluorometer detects hydrocarbons in water at very low concentrations. This in-situ fluorometer provides a rugged sensor which can be deployed in a wide variety of configurations. The UviLux is part of the Lux range of CTG fluorometers, and can be provided with a number of options with regard to signal protocols, and has available accessories to enable in-flow monitoring as well as inclusion within portable systems for taking measurements in the field.

  • Water Contamination Detection

    Security of water assets is becoming an increasingly major issue that demands immediate and robust alarms for potential contamination. In addition to this, natural growth of algae is a common problem for water asset managers, the results of which can increase maintenance costs of water processing plants as well as directly effecting water taste. The CTG FastGuard fast repetition rate fluorometer analyses information on the physiological state of the algae it monitors within an in-line flow system. A number of key parameters are monitored and analysed by the on-board embedded software, which instantly initiates both an audible and visual alarm on detection of a contaminant within the water system. The FastGuard is a robust low maintenance system which avoids false positives often provided by other contamination detection systems.

  • Monitoring of Algae in Drinking Water

    The UniLux in-situ fluorometer can be configured to detect a number of key parameters that are of importance to the Water Supply Industry. Primarily, the detection of Chlorophyll a in stored water systems, such as reservoirs, assists in the planning and informs decisions on water abstraction in relation to natural algae blooms that regularly occur throughout the year. As well as Chlorophyll a, these in-situ fluorometers can detect cyanobacterias, such as Phycocyanin and Phycoerythrin, which are often associated with algae groups of a toxic nature. Knowledge of concentrations of algae within the water can assist in determining the loading into water processing plants.

    These in-situ fluorometers are available as single parameter sensors (UniLux), or 3 channel sensors (TriLux).The CTG FastFlow fast repetition rate fluorometer provides information on the physiological state of algae it monitors. As well as providing detailed information on the growth rate of the algae (which can indicate the occurrence of a future algae bloom), it can immediately inform and alarm on toxins that have accidentally or deliberately been introduced into the water systems, as with the FastGuard system. The FastFlow differs from the FastGuard system in that it logs and displays detailed information on the state of the algae monitored for operational requirements.

  • Real-time In-situ Effluent Monitoring

    The UviLux BOD Indicator enables in-situ, real-time, reporting of BOD within both natural water systems and water processing plants. The monitor detects fluorescent proteins that are inherent within sewage and slurry and provides an output in BOD equivalent units. The principle behind the measurement is the excitation of Tryptophan-like fluorescence within UV wavelength band, which has been shown to correlate with both BOD and bacterial contamination. With complete flexibility of deployment methodology, the UviLux BOD Indicator can be applied to both water supply and water recovery processing plants. For water supply processing, the UviLux BOD Indicator can be applied at the front end to the water intake to provide alarm of any contaminated water entering the plant. Applications within Waste Water Treatment Works can include monitoring of effluent levels at the final outflow point (into rivers and coastal areas) as well as the primary, secondary & tertiary stages, the data potentially feeding into energy saving systems to optimise process performances. The CTG UviLux BOD Indicator in-situ fluorometer can also be used within pipe and channel networks to test for incidences of black water and grey water cross-over.
