The discharge of oil into water, land, or stormwater drains can be very harmful to the environment. Recent oily water discharges and oil spill incidents have raised the concern about oil pollution to marine waters. Many countries have taken action setting up surveillance systems including vessels and aerial surveillance aircrafts for pollution prevention and instant response.

The TD-500D Hand Held Oil in Water Analyzer is a low cost, user-friendly instrument.
