On-Site Wastewater Analysis

The US EPA, as well as other governmental regulatory agencies, have instituted stricter regulations covering discharges of “oily wastes” from facilities into publicity owed treatment plants (POTWs) facilities, forcing numerous industries to monitor their effluent more closely prior to discharge. This regulations affect such industries as food – both processors and restaurants, metal fabrication, meat packing, cosmetic manufacturing, and industrial laundry establishments. In order to ensure compliance with the regulations more frequent wastewater measurements to determine the fat, oil, grease (FOG) concentration level are necessary.

Using either the InfracCalTM TOG/TPH Analyzer, Model HATR-T2, or the Model CVH – depending on the solvent selected for the extraction process – onsite determinations of the total fat, oil, grease concentration level in the wastewater can be easily and accurately 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 the new ASTM Method D 7066-04.

With either Infracal TOG/TPH Analyzer, operators of pretreatment systems can quickly and easily assess their system’s efficiency and can see how it functions under heavy loads. They can also avoid discharging effluent that is above the regulatory limit.
