Valeport launches new Environmental range

A leading designer and manufacturer of hydrographic and oceanographic instruments, Valeport, who celebrates 50 years serving the subsea sector in 2019, has launched a new Enviromental range of optical sensors.

Hyperion Turbidity

This is the industry’s first standalone turbidity sensor with such a small footprint to combine Nephelometer and OBS readings in the same instrument.  Created for inshore, coastal and oceanographic monitoring, this new sensor delivers a minimum detection level of just 0.03 NTU (nephelometer) and can measure turbidity up to 6,000 NTU (OBS). 

The titanium housing, data output up to 16Hz and low power requirements ensures this sensor can be placed in situ for extended periods with easy access to highly accurate data. 

SWiFTplus Fluorometer 

This is designed by Valeport’s in-house specialists, this unique new range of probes combine the power of the SWiFT technology and a fluorometer for the high performance measurement of  Chlorophyll a,  Fluorescein,  Rhodamine or Phycocyanin. Compact and robust, the suite of instruments are ideal for shallow water bathymetric and environmental survey, where observations can be monitored and recorded for surveys for up to 3 days continuous operation.

These savvy sensors combine all you need to carry out survey grade Sound Velocity, Salinity, Density, CTD and optical profiles up to 200 metres, in a single instrument. 

Guy Frankland, Valeport marketing manager, commented:

“2019 is an exciting year for Valeport with a number of new and upgraded products coming to market.  We’re committed to innovating and leading the way in support of the hydrographic and oceanographic survey sector and are delighted with the reception the new Environmental range received at Ocean Business.”
