Wastewater professionals who are enforcing industrial effluent standards for fats, oil and grease (FOG) either must perform numerous gravimetric tests or spend a considerable amount of money with a contracted testing laboratory.  Infrared analysis. using portable instruments such as the InfraCal TOG/TPH Analylzers -provides an alternative which will significantly reduce costs and save time. 

The advantages of the Wilks portable infrared oil/grease analyzers include: 

90% less hexane used for solvent extraction than gravimetric tests,

measurement results in 10 minutes vs. 2 hours,

analysis can be done on-site eliminating the need to wait for off-site results,

less glassware to clean or possibly break.
