UviLux CDOM Sensor from Chelsea Technologies
UviLux CDOM Sensor
The Highly sensitive UV CDOM sensor fluorometer is for real-time, in situ detection of colored dissolved organic matter.
The CDOM UviLux measures levels of UV light in water. A common use for a CDOM sensor is the continuous monitoring of wastewater discharge. CDOM corresponds to total organic carbon, which is an indicator of discharge water quality.
It is a compact and highly sensitive fluorometer with excellent turbidity rejection and high ambient light rejection, making it suitable for use in water and wastewater treatment works, as well as natural waters at the surface and to depths of up to 1000 m.

Fluorescence is reported in Quinine Sulphate Units (QSU), where 1 QSU is equivalent to the fluorescence intensity recorded from 1 ppb quinine sulphate at an excitation wavelength of 347.5 nm and an emission wavelength of 450 nm. Factors are provided for selected compounds to convert the fluorescence output from QSU to ppb of the compound of interest
