An online oil in water monitor can quickly reveal small, intermittent leaks and indicate the potential for significant oil cooler tube failure before it occurs. Deep UV Fluorescence-based oil in water monitors from Turner Designs Hydrocarbon Instruments have been used extensively in power plants and industrial water processes for more than 20 years. Most petroleum-based oils and fuels absorb UV light and spontaneously emit fluorescent light at longer wavelengths. UV fluorescence monitors, such as the TD-120, are more sensitive to oil than UV absorption, turbidity, and light scatter monitors.
