  • Pending ASTM Biodiesel Blend Method for Filter-Based IR Analyzers

    Currently, Methods D7371 and EN 14078 require FTIR spectrometers for biodiesel blend analysis. Placing expensive equipment at a loading dock to ensure biodiesel blend accuracy is not a preferred choice of terminal operators. In addition to the cost associated with FTIR spectrometers, the level of technical knowledge required to operate them presents another issue. Filter-based infrared analyzers, ...

  • Measuring Oil Content in Off-Shore Drill Cuttings Using Portable IR Analyzers

    Large amounts of drill cuttings are produced in off-shore drilling and must meet an allowable limit on the amount of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) they contain for ocean disposal. As an example, the North Sea currently has a 1% limit for disposal of drilling cuttings. Transporting the cuttings to shore is labor intensive, costly and could cease due to bad weather. Limit requirements also ...

  • Measuring Antioxidant Inhibitor in Transformer Oils

    Monitoring the degradation of the antioxidant in transformer insulating oil can result in substantial savings by extending the service life of the oil and by slowing down the transformer aging process. 2,6 ditertiary-bytyl paracresol (DBPC) and 2,6-di-tert-Butyl Phenol (DBP) are common inhibitors that prevent oxidation of the electrical insulating oil in transformers. ASTM Method 2668 specifies ...

  • IR analysis helps industries comply with regulations for wastewater

    For over 30 years, the Clean Water Act has been governing water pollution. Initially the focus was on traditional “point source” polluters such as municipal sewage treatment plants and industrial facilities. The focus is now on the “non-point sources” such as Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) which are a major contributor to non-point source pollution. This is due to the increase in the ...

  • Ensuring your biofuels effluent meets regulatory limits

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well as other regulatory agencies around the world, have established limitation guidelines for discharges of “oily wastes” from facilities utilizing any type of oil and grease in their manufacturing process. However, recently several biodiesel plants in the US have been fined for illegally discharging vegetable-based oil and grease and polluting ...
