OceanTools D5 DyeTector®

The D 5 DyeTector is an advanced ultra compact subsea leak and dye detection system developed by OceanTools for installation on AUV systems or smaller observation class ROVs.



The ultra compact AUV or ROV mounted D 5 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, or during casing cementing operations to detect cement returns High intensity LED light is focused through lenses and filters to create a concentrated beam that is tuned to a specific wavelength to cause maximum molecular agitation and fluorescence of the dye A sophisticated optical multiplier employs light amplification technology to detect fluorescence from the agitated dye molecules Advanced detection electronics convert the measurements to digital data
