  • 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 ...

  • Residential spill in VA

    Laboratory analysis of soil samples showed high values of TPH/DRO showing an initial value of 18,800 and 8,300 ppm and the samples of soil analyzed after treatment with VaporRemed showed a value of 290 ppm and 210 ppm. Both these values are below the stipulated 500 ppm of TPH/DRO. The TPH in the drain water after flushing with the product showed values below the detection levels. The project was ...

  • Monitoring of petroleum hydrocarbon degradative potential of indigenous microorganisms in ozonated soil

    This study was performed to investigate the petroleum hydrocarbon (PH) degradative potential of indigenous microorganisms in ozonated soil to better develop combined pre-ozonation/bioremediation technology. Diesel-contaminated soils were ozonated for 0–900min. PH and microbial concentrations in the soils decreased with increased ozonation time. The greatest reduction of total PH (TPH, 47.6%) and ...

  • Enhanced Aerobic Bioremediation of Petroleum UST Releases in Puerto Rico.

    Abstract: Releases of petroleum compounds from underground storage tanks (USTs) containing diesel fuel and gasoline are a serious and increasingly prevalent problem in Puerto Rico. Remediation of groundwater impacted by these releases utilizing common methodologies can be quite costly and require long periods of time to implement. Oxygen is often the limiting factor retarding optimal ...

  • Solvent choices for infrared testing of oil and grease in water

    Water is a very strong absorber in the mi d infrared (I R) regio n where o il is measured. We see the effect of infrared absorbance when a cold bucket of water left in the sun is quite warm by afternoon due to the absorption of infrared energy as heat. When measuring part per million (ppm) oil levels with mid IR, the water absorbs so much of the infrared energy that the signal becomes saturated ...
