OceanTools, global leaders in subsea engineering, are delighted to announce the launch of the world’s most powerful dye, leak & cement detection system, the D10 DyeTector.

Based on the successful OceanTools D7 & D8 DyeTectors proven on numerous subsea campaigns globally, the D10 contains optical components to detect the three primary dyes used for underwater detection – rhodamine, ultra-violet and fluorescein. As well as being able to find leaks from subsea infrastructure, the D10 can be used to detect dye added to cement during drilling operations.

Available for rental or purchase, the OceanTools D10 DyeTector has a compact titanium and sapphire viewport, with a standard depth rating of 6000 metres. The D10 is controlled by an enhanced version of the user-friendly software that was developed for the earlier series of DyeTectors. The software displays the detected dye in a clear and unambiguous scrolling display with the ability to record data and set thresholds to automatically trigger alarms.

Kevin Parker, Managing Director, OceanTools, commented "We are thrilled to launch this world leading DyeTector. With the ability to detect all three dye types in a single unit, the D10, offers our customers a reliable solution providing them with the confidence it will detect any leak or dye they’re trying to find.”

OceanTools also currently have in development a 1000m depth rated unit, even more compact in size to provide a solution for Observation Class ROV market.

The D10 DyeTector will be displayed at Subsea Expo 2022 on the OceanTools stand 36 – 22nd –24th February at the Aberdeen exhibition.
