Details

In response to the need for accurate, in situ measurement of Rhodamine WT for water and pollutant tracing, YSI has developed the 6130 Rhodamine WT Sensor. The 6130 is a fouling-resistant, wiped sensor designed to seamlessly integrate - using no external interface hardware - with all YSI sondes that contain an optical port.

The YSI 6130 provides accurate, in situ measurement of Rhodamine WT in fresh, brackish, and sea water, as well as in stormwater and wastewater. The YSI 6130 Rhodamine WT Sensor rejects turbidity and chlorophyll interference. Measurement accuracy is further enhanced through correction for the effects of temperature.

The YSI 6130 sensor can be used in combination with those YSI sondes that have optical ports - 600 OMS, 6820, 6920, 6600, 6820 V2, 6920 V2, or 6600 V2 - and a YSI 650 MDS handheld display-logger. Make surface as well as vertical profile measurements. In addition, the YSI 6130 in combination with one of the YSI data logging sondes can be used for unattended continuous monitoring or integrated with data collection platforms for real-time data acquisition.
Notable Specifications:
  • Range: 0-200 ug/L
  • Resolution: 0.1 ug/L
  • Accuracy: +/-5% reading or 1 ug/L, whichever is greater
  • Warranty: 2 years

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
How do I install my 6130 sensor?
Install the 6130 sensor in the center port, seating the pins of the 2 connectors before tightening. Tighten the probe nut to the bulkhead but be sure to not over tighten.
Will high turbidity affect my readings?
A large amount of turbidity is required to affect the readings. (100NTU will read 3Ug/L). If measuring in a highly turbid environment, an independently determined turbidity reading may want to be taken to allow for compensation.

Rhodamine Dye Tracer Systems

Until the advent of in situ rhodamine WT measurement systems, dye fluorometry hydrologic measurements were performed by the analysis of multiple samples physically extracted from the water body as the dye plume was naturally dispersed. Most of these investigations are performed using fluorometers designed for in vitro and pump-through measurements. Although these methods can produce accurate hydrologic data, they are resource-intensive, significantly vulnerable to human error and other natural phenomenon. They also necessitate the field deployment of personnel throughout the duration of the study. The recent employment of in situ measurement systems has accentuated the limitations of in vitro and pump-through methods for performing these studies.

Mining Waste Cleanup Reveals Interesting Lake Dynamics

For the past decade or so, Dr. Bernard Laval , a civil engineer with the University of Northern BC in Canada, has been researching Quesnel Lake , a large, deep lake with unusual water dynamics. This allowed him an unusually high level of insight into much of what makes the lake tick—and when Mount Polley Mine (MPM) experienced a breach in 2014, causing materials to be deposited into Quesnel Lake, he already had a sense of what the lake's waters looked like. “Our work was inspired by a desire to improve holistic understanding of lake function to help with fisheries management by BC Ministry of Environment (BC MOE) and Fisheries and Ocean Canada (DFO),” explains Dr. Laval.

Narragansett Nature: Remote NERR is a leader in salt marsh stressor studies, crab studies and contributions to Rhode Island environmental policies

Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.
