Hydrocarbon Probe

 Hydrocarbon detection on water’s surface


The hydrocarbon probe is the ideal solution for the detection of hydrocarbons in water.

Detects very small sizes of this contaminant.

Its airtight design and low consumption makes the maintenance required is minimal.

The data collected by the probe are registered and analyzed by the Smartyplanet web platform as it is fully compatible.




The hydrocarbon probe is the solution specifically designed to detect the presence of hydrocarbons in water. It has applications in the oil, maritime, mining and agriculture industries, in environmental control, etc.
It has an airtight design that makes it water resistant. It can be installed in remote places because thanks to its low power consumption can be fed only solar panels.
The operation of this probe is based on the sending of 365nm UV light beams to the water surface that excite any hydrocarbon molecules in the selected area. The sensor collects the signal and transmits the data to the Smartyplanet web platform in which they are processed thanks to your total compatibility.
