    DETERMINATION OF TOTAL PETROLEUM HYDROCARBONS (TPH) IN WATER BY FLUORIMETRIC METHOD

    Total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) is a term used to describe a large family of several hundred chemical compounds that originally come from crude oil; the main and most specific part of these compounds are non-polar and slightly polar hydrocarbons of the aliphatic, aromatic and alicyclic structure. These compounds are harmful to humans and animals if absorbed through the skin, ingested, and inhaled thus claiming the analytical control of THP content in water as a global issue. Quantification of TPH in water is typically done using rather expensive chromatography techniques. Lumex Instruments developed fluorimetric method for cost-effective petroleum hydrocarbons in water determination using FLUORAT-02 analyzer. The method is based on measuring the fluorescence intensity of oil products after their extraction from water phase by hexane.

    Monitoring of leaks in heat exchangers

    Optical instruments called fluorometers can very easily detect and measure dissolved petroleum hydrocarbons in water, and at very low concentrations. As shown in the study below, TD-4100 series monitors are able to measure xylene continuously over four consecutive weeks with a direct correlation coefficient of 0.9967 compared to GC grab sample analysis.

    TPH in Soil Remediation

    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
