  • Enviro Technology brings water-borne hydrocarbon fingerprinting to UK

    For the first time, water utility companies, industry and environmental scientists can conduct real-time in-situ and remote tests for low-level presence of hydrocarbons in water following Enviro Technology’s introduction of Synspec’s pioneering new hydrocarbons in water analyser. Traditionally it has been difficult to accurately identify hydrocarbon compounds in water unless they are ...

  • Drilling mud and fluid testing for reuse or disposal

    Oil-based drilling fluids are using in the oil industry during oil exploration as a lubricant. The disposing of mud overboard on offshore oil platforms (FPSOs) or from land-based oil rigs is regulated and requires monitoring. The fluids are also expensive and its common practice to reclaim the drilling fluids from the mud for reuse. Sitelab's portable UVF analyzers are very sensitive to these ...

  • No change in amount or sources of PAHs

    More than two years after Austin, TX, USA, banned refined tar sealants, there has been no discernable change in either the amount or sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in sediment in Austin's waterways. Austin\'s ban went into effect on 1st January 2006. Results of a study of the ban's impact were just published in a paper titled Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in ...

  • SharpEye 40/40M Multi IR Flame Detector

    The SharpEye 40/40M Multi IR Flame Detector is unique in being able to detect both hydrogen and hydrocarbon flames simultaneously. Each type of flame has their own spectral fingerprint which allows for the highest reliability. This allows one type of detector to be installed for excellent flame detection in areas where hydrogen flames are a possibility, without missing hydrocarbon flames. ...

  • Hand-held FTIR analyzers — a new capability for at-site measurements of rock and minerals — use of FTIR for elucidating rock and mineral composition

    A2 Technologies' Exoscan hand-held FTIR (Figure 1) is increasingly being used by researchers involved in the geosciences for analysis of rocks, minerals, and soil for a broad variety of applications. The reason for this acceptance is that the Exoscan system, equipped with diffuse reflectance sampling interface, can be used equally effectively in the laboratory or field locales to provide ...
