On-Site Analysis of Gasoline Range Organics (GRO) in Soil and Groundwater Using Field Portable Purge and Trap GC / FID / PID
Although leaking underground storage tanks account for the majority of gasoline contamination in soils and groundwater, other events such as accidents during product transportation or delivery are also significant. Spill clean-ups and tank replacements have an immediacy to them due to the very steep relationship between delay and cost. Since gasoline is highly mobile in the environment, it is very likely that a clean-up crew will be chasing a plume to points unknown, which requires almost continuous testing during the project. Bottlenecks occur when samples must be collected, transported to a lab and then analyzed. The bottleneck can be eliminated by high performance, on-site testing.
