Oil on water

The BlueTrace Oil in Water Sensor is a compact fluorescence probe for the measurement of BTEX, PAH and refined oil in water. The robust design of the Blue- Trace Sensor allows for applications in harsh conditions, such as corrosive media or at high pressure..

Introduction Fluorescence - Oil in Water
When light of a certain wavelength hits an oil particle,the oil emits light of a different wavelength shortly after excitation. This effect is called fluorescence. Fluorescence occurs not only in oils, but also in other substances. The BlueTrace oil in water sensor uses this effect to determine the concentration of refined oils in water. A transmitter installed in the sensor emits light at around 280 nm. The oil particles in the water absorb this energy and then emit light in a range from 300 to 400 nm. This light is measured by a detector.

Specific calibration to specific oil types
Since the fluorescence spectrum is extremely dependent on the refined oil, the sensor functions optimally with a specific calibration to this oil. Also, the absorption of the water has an influence on the measurement, so that for the calibration the oil should be mixed in the water, which is to be expected locally. In low concentrations a linear behaviour can be expected, therefore, a two-point calibration can be sufficient. However, at least a three-point calibration is recommended.
