New Cyanobacteria-Sensitive Optics for Enviro-T2 In-Line Fluorometer
Turner Designs’ Enviro-T2 detects Cyanobacteria in a low-cost in-line monitor
Enviro-T2 is an in-line fluorometer suited for drinking water or wastewater facilities that want to detect cyanobacteria and algae in their water flow. It is an accurate, single-channel fluorometer which easily integrates with data collection systems providing a 4 – 20 mA output proportional to the fluorescence from chlorophyll in water. The Enviro-T2 Red Excitation Fluorometer has maximum sensitivity for better detection of cyanobacteria; the Enviro-T2 Blue Excitation Fluorometer is configured with maximum sensitivity to all other algal groups. Enviro-T2 uses solid-state optoelectronics making it a reliable, high performance, rugged continuous sampling device. Instrument maintenance or inspection is very simple with a quick one-step disconnect. Factory-calibrated and requiring minimal installation effort, simply plumb the Enviro-T2 in-line with your online monitoring system, connect the output of your controller or data logger, and supply power to estimate algal abundance as a biological parameter for your monitoring program.
