Measuring oil/grease levels in wastewater for compliance with permit requirements


Source: Spectro Scientific

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

With 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 total oil/grease concentration in the wastewater is easily and accurately determined in 10-15 minutes – including extraction process. Measurement data obtained with the Model HATR-T2 correlates to EPA Method 1664 and with the Model CVH to ASTM Method D 7066-04.

The InfraCal Analyzers currently being used for analyzing produced water on offshore oil platforms, monitoring refinery or industrial plant wastewater effluents, as well as measuring fats, oils, and greases (FOG) discharge levels into treatment centers.
