  • 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 ...

  • Test metal, concrete & other surfaces for residual oil contamination

    Surficial sampling and analysis is used to assess the existence and/or extent of oil contamination on various surfaces, rather than in soil, sediment or water. Applications include testing wipe samples for residual oils coated on aluminum, steel or other metal parts after the manufacturing process. This includes ventilation ducts, fans, AC coils and other metal working processes to see how well ...

  • Field method developed for testing oil sheens on surface water using sheen nets

    A pipeline spill in Michigan contaminated a river with crude oil.  Almost one year later, oil sheens continued to be spotted on the river's surface, as do "bio sheens," which look like oil sheens but only contain biological, natural organic matter from leaves and other decomposing vegetation. The oil company's contractor collected samples from both contaminated and non-contamianted areas ...

  • Successful commissioning with 2 t/h oily wastes

    The VacuDry plant delivered in 2009 to England has been tested during the last months with various different input wastes. Also filter cakes coming from centrifugation units in refineries with solid contents around 40% have been operated to the required capacity of 2 t/h. Lab analysis has shown that the oil recycled from the waste has properties similar to light fuel oil while after treatment the ...

  • Stedman`s Grand Slam™ Model 3030H Impactor Reduces Plastic Molded Parts

    Aurora, IN - The Grand Slam™ Model 3030H from Stedman efficiently reduces large pieces of rejected plastic molded parts to an ideal feed size for the granulator. After the granulator, material is then ready to be recycled and re-melted. Originally the large pieces of plastics were sized for the granulator by a band saw. The Model 3030H handles feed sizes up to 25” x 18” x 9” and features an ...

  • 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 ...
