European photonics company LDI Innovation has partnered with PhotonTec with the aim of giving North American clients access to LDI Innovation’s LED-based fluorometric oil and gasoline spillage monitoring technology.
According to LDI, the new technology includes BlueHawk and Tiny Hawk fluorosensors, which can be used in various environments such as ports, airports, marinas, industrial facilities, oil rigs, military installations and all water bodies.
The new technologies are set to feature advanced and individual capabilities in comparison to other products on the market, which include a larger sensing range and a distinct design.
PhotonTec business development manager Juha Saily emphasised how the company’s product range differs from competitors with its high detectability range.
Saily said: “The customers we work with have increasingly demanding needs for real-time detection of oil and fuel spills on water and land where conventional sensors are often ineffective. Our new sensors outperform competitors in virtually every category, providing higher reliability and sensitivity with no false alarms, the longest available sensor-to-surface scan range and detection of all types of hydrocarbons, from very light to heavy oils, including jet fuels and gasoline.
“They also install and work in the most challenging environments, such as rough waters with high waves, areas with large tidal variations, explosive atmospheres and many battery and solar-powered applications.”

This partnership will oversee regional customer and technical support provided through PhotonTec, which is based in Atlanta.
According to the company, UV-B is required for the reliable detection of very light and light lubricants such as jet fuels and gasoline, which is why its product line includes UV-B wavelength bands.
This partnership maintains LDI’s 30-year track record in photonics science and technology developments that are related to environmental, industrial, bio-medical and security applications.
