Spyglass Technologies Underwater Mass Spectrometer S200
The Spyglass Underwater Mass Spectrometer S200 platform is a powerful analytical tool for a wide range of applications including hydrocarbon mapping, environmental assessments, leak detection, industrial process control and other operations requiring high fidelity real-time chemical analysis of water or air.
It can work on deck or can be deployed underwater (1800 m depth rated). It needs less than a minute to take a sample and measure it, providing much better productivity in comparison with the standard method. A two hour sampling stage yields more than 500 sampling points and quick response after raw data processing. By using the classic workflow a 20-30 day sample and data processing is required for the same data amount. It has the advantage of providing in situ measurement without the risk of sample contamination. It is the first equipment of its kind available in Europe!
It has been proven to detect chemical substances with molar mass under 200 amu such as benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, xylenes (“BTEX”), methane and other volatile organic compounds, light hydrocarbons, dimethyl sulfide, noble gases, dissolved oxygen (dO), dissolved CO2, and other compounds of interest, at low concentrations.
The Spyglass software allows users to define the frequency of testing, specify protocols, and determine sampling parameters. The Spyglass Web Portal aggregates data in a centralized online repository for subsequent visualization and management through secure web connections and user accounts. Spyglass Underwater Mass Spectrometer S200 can be connected with a GPS device providing real-time georeferencing of the results.
