oil leak monitoring Applications

  • Groundwater monitoring for oil tank leaks

    Leakwise can detect oil leaks from tank bottoms much more quickly than other manual methods, thus reducing the risk of severe groundwater contamination.

    Fire detection solutions for the oil rigs

    The worse event that can befall on off shore oil rig is fire. The Model 125 is a smoke monitor designed to operate in hazardous areas, especially in oil rig air conditioning and ventilation ducts. The electronics are contained in an explosion proof container rated as EEX de II B T5; the sensing head uses fibre optic cables to transmit the near infra-red light to a reflector where it is returned to another fibre optic cable. The light level is then monitored by a photo-electric cell. The Model 125 gives an output in opacity which is transmitted to the rig safety systems.

    Monitoring of heat exchanger leaks in paper plant

    The Situation

    A paper plant in the Eastern United States uses 500 gallons per minute filtered pond water for cooling lubricating oil in its paper line. The resulting warmed water is diverted to an onsite pond. Because the water is used to cool lubricating oil, the plant could not reuse the water in its pulping process for fears of possible oil contamination of the paper pulp.

    Oil in Water Analysis for Flowback or Produced Water

    The amount of water used in and produced by hydraulic fracturing of shale gas wells is in the millions of gallons per well. Whether the water is going to be taken off site for disposal or reused for re-injection, the flowback or produced water needs pretreatment to remove any residual oil from the water. Waiting for remote lab results can take several days to a week. InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers allow for oil in water testing at the well site in less than 10 minutes. The sampling requires a few simple steps that can be performed by non-technical personnel. The water is mixed with the extraction solvent, shaken, and then presented to the analyze for measurement. The same InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzer can be used for TPH in soil if a spill or pond leak occurs to determine the contaminated area. The analyzer features: -Results in under 15 minutes -Detect levels as low as 10 ppm -Portable, rugged, lightweight, easy-to-use -Battery operable -Ideal for field or lab use

    Monitoring of hydroelectric dam sumps

    The Situation

    Hydroelectric dams produce electric power by harnessing the force of the water flowing through the dam. There are numerous sources for oil spillage:

    • The hydroelectric turbines are lubricated by lubrication oils.
    • The very large water control valves are normally hydraulic powered and are lubricated with various greases and oils.
    • Vehicles including fork lifts, trucks, etc., can spill oils and fuels.

    Any accidental spillage of oil or grease or intentional wash down water containing minor amounts of oils, greases, and detergents must be collected and treated before discharge to the river. These fluids along with any water leaks are collected in sumps in the dam and are regularly pumped out. In many cases, the volume of water is substantial.
