Some of the PAH and monoaromatic hydrocarbons detected by our monitors:

  • Fuel Oil
  • Crude Oil
  • Creosol
  • Jet Fuel
  • Phenol
  • Gasoline
  • Diesel
  • Lubricating Oils
  • BTEX
  • Phenanthrene
  • Heat Transfer Fluids
  • Aromatic Solvents
  • Longwall Fluid


Turner Designs Hydrocarbon Instruments are based in UV and visible fluorescence technology. E09 electronics and a highly sensitive light detector allow hydrocarbons to be detected from the parts-per-million (ppm) to parts-per-billion (ppb) range. Compared with other hydrocarbon in water detection methods, such as ultraviolet or infrared spectrophotometry, the E09 electronics offer:

  • Higher intrinsic sensitivity; from 100 to 1000 times greater than pure absorption detection methods.
  • High selectivity, by “targeted hydrocarbon” optical tuning, minimizing chemical interferences and false alarms due to sample turbidity.
  • Low maintenance due to the flow cell and monitor design.
