InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers allow for TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in soil testing at remediation sites such as leaking
underground storage tanks and produced water evaporation ponds. Site managers can avoid having costly soil remediation equipment
sit idle while waiting for off-site lab results. Sampling requires a few
simple steps that can be performed by non-technical personnel. The soil is mixed with the extraction solvent, shaken, filtered, and
then presented to the InfraCal Analyzer for measurement. Features include:
- Results in under 15 minutes, including extraction
¨ Detect levels as low as 10 ppm
¨ Portable, rugged, lightweight, easy-to-use
¨ Battery operable
¨ Ideal for field or laboratory applications
¨ Factory calibration available
Sitelab's UVF-3100D is used to test soil to help investigate and clean up sites contaminated by above ground or underground storage tanks (USTs). Soils can be analyzed for extended diesel range organics (EDRO) or extractable petroleum hydrocarbons (EPH). Results correlate well to confirmatory lab methods.
There is growing concern - and regulations in the works - over the use of sealcoating products due to their high PAH content. In the United States and elsewhere, most sealcoats are made from coal tar which can be toxic to aquatic life and threaten public water supplies from rain and runoff. Sitelab can be used to quickly check the concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and determine if it's made from coal tar or alternative petroleum based black top sealants. Got samples? We'll test them for free! Contact Sitelab Corporation for details.
