The Hanby system is a field portable method for the determination of petroleum related substances.  Accuracy, speed and simplicity are fundamental to this groundbreaking technique that was discovered in 1986.  The Hanby field test product line provides quanitative and qualitative analysis of soil and water samples in the field.

Hanby field products are designed to save time and money by significantly reducing the dependence on off-site laboratory analysis.  The Hanby method provides accurate and fast qualitative and quantitative results while in the field.  Hanby products enable our customers to quickly detect petroleum contaminanted zones or monitor locations to ensure continued compliance within approved guideline.

Environmental contractors and consultants, HazMat teams, remediation specialists, and even oil exploration geologists have been utilizing Hanby products at spill sites, underground storage tanks, pipeline leaks, remediation sites and Superfund sites.  The Hanby method has been widely used in a wide range of domestic and international industries for the detection and monitoring of petroleum related contaminates:

  • Environmental Consulting
  • Exploration & Production
  • Real Estate
  • Municipal Water Plants
  • Pulp & Paper
  • Gasoline Stations
  • Remediation
  • Sugar
  • Petrochemical

The Hanby system is a field portable method that provides rapid analyses down to parts-per-billion for aromatic compounds, including gasoline, diesel, PCB's and many others. The procedure extracts the aromatic compounds from the sample and provides immediate colorimetric identification of the concentration and type of contaminants present. The color of the reacted extract solution indicates the type of compound, and the intensity of the color indicates the concentration. The results of the test compare consistently from sample to sample over a wide range of concentrations in soil, fresh water and salt water.

The Hanby product line functions as a self-contained portable laboratory in a rugged, lightweight briefcase. Each Hanby kit has been designed to include all of the materials necessary for non-technical personnel to use in the field with ease.

The  Hanby product line is easy to use and provides accurate analyses in less than 5 minutes for petroleum substances in soil and water samples.  Each field kit includes simple, easy-to-use apparatus, clear written instructions, and a video tape of the procedure.  A soil or water sample is extracted, and the extract is reacted with a catalyst that emits a robust color indication, much like a household pregnancy test or a pH test for a swimming pool.
