  • Ferrous Wear Metal Measurement Made Easy with the FerroCheck

    Historically, one of the most cost-effective indicators of machinery health has been the analysis of ferrous debris in oil. Such analysis utilizes the ferromagnetic properties of generated debris to perform the analysis. Since nearly all wear debris contains ferrous material (in particular iron), an abnormal increase in the amount of debris can be directly correlated to abnormal machinery ...

  • The removal of toxic dissolved and dispersed hydrocarbons from oil and gas produced water

    Abstract Legislation worldwide and current technologies used in the treatment of offshore oil & gas/condensate produced water are mainly aimed at the removal of dispersed hydrocarbons (dispersed oil). Beginning of this century, new insights in the Norwegian part of the North Sea area were obtained on the toxic content of produced water and its impact on the environment. This was recently ...

  • Phytoremediation of Alkylated Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in a Crude Oil-Contaminated Soil

    Abstract  Phytoremediation uses plants and their associated microorganisms in conjunction with agronomic techniques to remove or degrade environmental contaminants. The objective of the field study was to evaluate the effect of vegetation establishment plus fertilizer addition on the biodegradation of alkylated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in a crude oil-contaminated soil. Four ...


  • The Three Basic Parameters for How to Address Oil / Hydrocarbon Based Material Spills

    The most basic quesAon to ask in regards to oil spills is, why do you clean them up? Very few people get the reason why you clean up an oil spill. The reason you clean up an oil spill is to reduce the toxicity of the oil to the environment so that living organisms can survive/ live. If single celled organisms can live in the environment, then generally ...

  • Sun Oil Vapor Recovery System - Hydrocarbon Vapor Suppression

    Products & Equipment Used: Pneumatic Foam Unit NTC 8 AC-645 Long Duration Foam Application Summary: Mid Atlantic Constructors installed a vapor recovery system at the Sun Oil Marcus Hook (PA) Refinery.

  • Utilisation of shale oil by the extraction and retorting of oil shale

    Extraction of the bitumen fraction of oil shale was carried out using two different solvents, chloroform and toluene. Oil shale of 4.0 mm particle size from the El-Lajjun area in Jordan was used in this study. The solvents were recovered by distillation. The spent shale was retorted using a special retort and shale oil (Kerogen) was recovered. The quantity of the hydrocarbon was compared with ...

  • Regeneration of used oil

    Used oil regeneration technologies Over time, oil accumulates oxidation products, contaminants and impurities which drastically reduce its quality. Contaminated oil can no longer meet quality requirements and must be changed. Waste oil is collected and regenerated to retain valuable basic materials. Oil cannot be recycled at petroleum processing plants with ...

  • Petroleum Hydrocarbons in Wastewater

    A wastewater treatment company established and operates an oil/water separation facility on a multi-acre industrial site in Northern California. Its purpose is to recycle oil products for profit while at the same time provide a wastewater treatment service for industries based in Northern California. The oily water mixes processed by the company are obtained from tanker bilges, contaminated ...

  • Monitoring Hydrocarbons in Bilge Water

    The Situation Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as garbage may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited ...

  • Proof That Bacteria Degrade Oil

    There has been a lot of publicity and ‘noise’ around the ability of bacteria to degrade oil, especially following BP’s Gulf of Mexico incident.  However little has been shown to prove that biological remediation is an effective means of treating oil contamination. Over many years CBIO have worked to develop a range of a microbial products that have proven to be able to ...

  • Hydraulic Oil Spill on Roadway

    Fuel Oil Soaked Wood. Contact was made to our office in May/2007 regarding the wood base underneath an oil/kerosene furnace system which, upon removal, it was discovered that kerosene had leaked and was somewhat permeated, leaving an odor. With over-time saturation of the wood, we recommended multiple treatments. After use of our Terracap 3000/4000 kit, we received the following in a letter: "I ...


  • Oil & Grease applications notes

    EPA Method 1664A & 1664Bwas developed to determine the precise amount of n-Hexane Extractable Material (HEM) and Silica Gel Treated n-Hexane Extractable Material (SGT-HEM) that exist within a water sample. The HEM or SGT-HEM that is extracted contains a mix of various hydrocarbons usually residing within the semi-volatile range with a boiling point greater ...
