  • Rapid Analysis of Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) in Soil and Water by Infrared Spectroscopy

    In 1988 the US EPA estimated that there were 3 to 5 million underground chemical storage tanks (UST’s) in the United States, of which up to 1% would develop leaks every year. In response to growing concerns about the quality and future availability of safe drinking water, federal and state programs have begun to systematically replace virtually all UST’s installed before 1986 either with above ...

  • A Simplified Procedure for the Determination of TPH’s in Waters and Soils Using the HC-404 System

    The determination of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH), greases, and lubricant residues are important environmental and industrial tests. Fuel and lube oils can be determined in water and soils to track spills and storage tank leaks, while many military and industrial situations require certain components (gas regulators, space shuttle components, weaponry parts, etc.) to have a maximum limit of ...

  • Case study – benzene/TPH contamination - truck Stop

    Pre-treatment, this truck stop had groundwater Benzene levels of low to 1200 ug/L and TPH figures of low to 18,000 ug/L in groundwater and up to 7900 mg/kg in soil. After BOS 200® treatment and monitoring for several months, the site has filed with the state for ...

  • Enhanced Bioremediation of TPH with IXPER® case study

    This remediation has been conducted after removing of leaking underground storage tanks from a former gasoline service station in Bethalto, Illinois, and limited source area excavation and air-site disposal of petroleum-contaminated soils. Dissolved petroleum constituents in excess of state reguatory standards were still observed in the groundwater. It was estimated that the remaining ...

  • Cleanup of Contaminated Soils at Municipal Park

    A municipal garden in Mandarituba, soil was contaminated with transformer oil and COPEL, the utility company was responsible for the cleanup and restoration of the contaminated soils. The company decided to use AgroRemed BR CTBA specially customized for applications in Brazil. The site was excavated and treated as biopile with AgroRemed BR CTBA. Both TPH values and VOC’s were acceptable and ...

  • Bioremediation of petroleum contaminated Soils in Brazil Using AgroRemed

    At Atuba at the corporate site of COPEL, a state owned utility company, soil was heavily contaminated with transformer oil due to a long history of contamination since 1964 probably due to unsafe practices of storage and cleanup. The level of contamination measures as TPH in soil was as high as 766,695 ppm and much of the contamination was at a depth of 1 meter. The site is located on a hill and ...

  • Determination of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons in Soil, Sediment, and Waste Samples using the SpeedExtractor E-916

    Total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) are a family of several hundred chemical compounds made from crude oil. TPH are found in soils and water. Exposure to TPH can affect human health and, therefore many laboratories around the world are analyzing TPH levels in the environment. This application note describes the extraction of TPH from soil, sediment, and waste samples using the SpeedExtractor ...
