Easy, On-site Measurement of Hydrocarbon (Oil/Grease) Concentration in Water in Less Than 15 Minutes

Jan 14 2008 Read 754 Times

Determining the total hydrocarbon level is a problem that faces numerous industries today to ensure compliance with governmental permit requirements for discharge of wastewater. In order to ensure compliance with these regulations and avoid fines for exceeding permit discharge levels, more frequent wastewater measurements are necessary to determine the total hydrocarbon concentration level.

Wilks Enterprise Inc. (USA) manufactures portable infrared analysers that have been specifically designed for easy, on-site measurement of the hydrocarbon (oil/grease) concentration level in water. Using either the InfraCalTM TOG/TPH Analyser, Model HATR-T2, or the Model CVH – depending on the solvent selected for the extraction process – on-site determinations of the total hydrocarbon (oil/grease) concentration level in the wastewater can be easily and accurately determined in 10-15 minutes – including extraction process.
Measurement data obtained with the Model HATR-T2 will correlate to EPA Method 1664 and with the Model CVH to the new ASTM Method D 7066-04. Currently, there are upwards of 1,400 of these analysers in worldwide operation – many on offshore oil platforms. They InfraCal TOG/TPH Analysers have become the industry standard for determining hydrocarbon (oil/grease) concentration levels in water.
