Measuring hydrocarbon levels in wastewater in under 15 minutes

Determining total hydrocarbon or oil/grease levels to ensure compliance with governmental permit requirements for discharging wastewater is a worldwide problem facing numerous industries. To ensure compliance with these regulations and avoid fines for exceeding permit discharge levels, more frequent wastewater measurements are necessary to determine the total hydrocarbon concentration. Wilks Enterprise, Inc. manufactures portable infrared analyzers that have been specifically designed for easy, on-site measurement of the hydrocarbon (oil/grease) concentration level in water.

Using either the InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzer, Model HATR-T2, or the Model CVH – depending on the solvent selected for the extraction process – on-site measurement of the total hydrocarbon (oil/grease) concentration level in the wastewater can easily and accurately be determined in 10-15 minutes – including extraction process. Measurement data obtained with the Model HATR-T2 will correlate to EPA Method 1664 and with the Model CVH to ASTM Method D 7066-04. Currently, there are upwards of 1,800 of these analyzers in worldwide operation – many on offshore oil platforms. The InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers have become the industry standard for determining hydrocarbon (oil/grease) concentration levels in water and are ideal for use by operators having little or no technical background.
