  • Case study - EDRO in soil at wharf remediation site

    Sitelab Calibration Kit CAL-042 is used for EDRO analysis. The UVF-3100 detects hydrocarbons in the C10-C36 range. A Licensed Site Professional (LSP) used Sitelab to investigate a commercial waterfront property, contaminated with a plume of LNAPL resulting from fuel tanks which once stored heating oil, diesel and gasoline dating back to the 1950s. The site is in Massachusetts, where laboratories ...

  • Can I extend the range of the TPH in Soil kit by dilution?

    The pocket colorimeter kit by Hach offers an immunoassay method to measure TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in soil samples – a useful indicator of petrol pollution or contamination in soil. For areas of heavy contamination the range of the test can be extended by dilution during the soil extraction step. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Accurately Measure Hydrocarbon (Oil/Grease) Levels in Produced Water in Under 15 Minutes

    Determining total hydrocarbon or oil/grease levels to ensure compliance with regulatory permit requirements for discharging produced water is a worldwide problem facing the oil and gas industry.   Ensuring compliance with these regulations and avoiding fines for non-compliant discharges requires more frequent wastewater measurements to determine the total hydrocarbon ...
