The D7 DyeTector is a truly state of the art subsea dye detector. High-power LED light is focused through lenses and filters to create a very narrow high energy beam that is tuned to a specific wavelength to cause maximum fluorescence of the dye. Detection electronics employ clever light amplification technology to amplify even the smallest amounts of fluorescence in order to detect the fluorescing dye.
The D7 DyeTector uses a new technology capable of detecting single photons of light, which enables it to detect down to single digit parts per billion of dye dissolved in water. This makes it ideal for detecting the very smallest of leaks or dye dosed cement.
For larger leaks, we offer the D3 and D5 DyeLighter range.
A DyeTector may be used to detect leaks from subsea infrastructure such as manifolds, wellheads or pipelines if a suitable dye has been added to the infrastructure fluids.
A DyeTector may also be used during casing cementing operations to detect cement returns if a tracer dye is added to either the seawater spacer or to the cement itself. Unlike pH meters which rely upon the cement passing over them, a DyeTector can detect cement from a distance of several metres depending on the concentration of dye.
