HSS 1036 Hydro Surveillance System

The INVALCO HSS 1036 Hydro Surveillance System is a filter fluorescence photometer with a fixed excitation bandpass source (365 nm) and an emission bandpass filter (460 nm). It is designed specifically for the quantitation of low ppm concentration measurements of aromatic hydrocarbons (oil) in water.

The HSS 1036 uses a UV fluorescence technique to target the aromatic component of the oil contamination. Through a site calibration this aromatic tag provides an indication relative to total oil. The sample vial is placed into the sample well. A non-contacting UV light source targets the sample with filtered light energy. The soluble and emulsified oils in the water will excite from this light energy and fluoresce light energy back out of the water at a signature wavelength. The intensity of light energy at this wavelength is measured to provide an indication of the ppm concentration.
