Bowtech leak detection systemThe Bowtech Leak Detection System is a bespoke solution for identifying leaks in pipelines, risers and subsea wellhead equipment. It includes a LED lamp which emits a green light for excitation of fluorescent tracer dye and a high resolution, low light sensitive camera fitted with a filter to enable the detection of the fluorescing dye.

The examples below show the effect of fluorescent tracer dye excited by the green light as detected with colour or monochrome cameras with or without filter, demonstrating that the optimum configuration is monochrome filtered camera.
