  • Hyperion Turbidity sensor

    Hyperion Turbidity
    The new Valeport Hyperion-T is essentially 2 sensors in one.
    The first is a “classic” turbidity sensor, a nephelometer that uses a 90° beam angle, for low turbidity levels (0 to 1,000 NTU). The second, for high turbidity levels (1,000 to 6,000 NTU) uses an Optical Backscatter (OBS) arrangement (~120° beam angle). Intelligent sampling and use of a 24 bit ADC eliminates the need to gain switch at higher turbidity levels. The optical head is very compact – measuring just 20mm in diameter and with a full ocean depth rating lends itself to OEM type solutions.


Whatever your application, Valeport has over 40 years experience of providing the right instrumentation to meet the demanding requirements of your harsh operating environments.

Our aim is to provide you with the right equipment to do your job with the minimum of fuss and maximum confidence.

Sea Mammal Tracking

Valeport's instruments help track seals

Valeport have been working in collaboration with St Andrews University Sea Mammals Research Unit (SMRU), for a number of years now assisting with the tracking of sea mammals such as Seals.

A CTD oceanographic sensor has successfully been modified to enable it to be attached to the seals to monitor their diving and swimming patterns. See a recent news article on how elephant seals are also helping oceanographers gather new data.
