  • Mass flow sensing improves leak test efficiency

    Mass flow meters reduce risk of measurement error and provide a reliable, quantitative measurement of product quality and production process control. In the leak testing application, mass flow meters offer advantages unmatched by other instruments. Today, leak testing must be not only precise, accurate and irrefutable, but also easy-to-use, fast and efficient. With mass flow sensing, dry air ...

  • GoForth, NC Case Study

    ABSTRACT Trap & Treat® BOS 200® was used to remediate petroleum hydrocarbon impacted groundwater within fractured bedrock and overburden soil at a former retail gasoline site in North Carolina. After a thorough remedial design characterization was completed, BOS 200® was surgically injected over two field events to successfully achieve the ...

  • Techniques for Oil in Water Analysis

    The people responsible for conducting oil in water measurements understand that the measurement can be quite challenging. Wastewater from different sources can contain many different types of hydrocarbons, each with different chemical make-ups. On top of the lack of chemical uniformity in different oils, there has been a ...

  • Case study - Crude oil in water

    Produced Water Treatment Site: A pilot study was performed to test water samples contaminated with produced water from several oil well production sites in Wyoming for a company that provides mobile water treatment systems that enable oil and gas companies to recycle and reuse flow back water more efficiently. The samples were tested for their gasoline range and extended diesel/oil range ...

  • Case study - Texas crude oil in soil sites

    Sunset Well Service, Inc. is an environmental contractor located in the Midland/Odessa area of Texas. They use their UVF-3100D analyzer to help excavate and remediate soils contaminated by produced water and crude oil. Laboratories in Texas test TPH using the TX 1005 GC-FID Method. This method is similar to U.S. EPA Method 8015M, but reports the GRO, DRO and ORO fractions separately. Soils from ...

  • Effects of improved storage containers on the bacteriological quality of household drinking water in low-income urban communities in Ibadan, Nigeria

    This study assessed the effectiveness of improved storage containers on household drinking water quality in four low-income urban communities in Ibadan, Nigeria. Three hundred randomly selected respondents were interviewed, while 44 households were selected and randomly assigned to four improved container treatment groups: Covered Buckets with Taps (CBT), Covered Buckets without Taps (CB), ...

  • Water consumption in a public swimming pool

    Swimming pools are heavy consumers of potable water and energy in cities. Despite this, the lack of monitoring requirements produces a lack of references for their water consumption. This paper aims to fill this gap by presenting a case-study water consumption analysis of a public swimming pool in the city of Bologna (Italy). After upgrading the water fixtures and filters in summer 2012, ...

  • A study on the quantities and potential use of produced water in southern Iraq

    This paper presents the results of an analysis of volumes and chemical composition of produced water (PW) accompanying oil production from five of the largest oilfields in the world situated in Basrah, Iraq. PW is potentially a valuable water resource particularly there where the ramp up of oil production puts further strains on water and the environment in an area already having severe water ...

  • Organic matter removal and disinfection byproduct management in South East Queensland's drinking water

    Over the past several decades, much research has been carried out to understand and control the formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs) of potential human health concern in drinking water. The majority of these studies have taken place in continental climates of North America and Europe, with less work investigating waters in tropical and subtropical climates. This study evaluated the ...

  • Different technology options for monitoring oil in produced water – inline continuous monitoring and IR analysis

    No offshore facility wants to be caught with a sheen around their platform as that can result in a costly fine for exceeding discharge permit limits for oil. Onboard oil in water analyzers are necessary to ensure the oil/water separation systems are functioning properly before overboard disposal of the produced water. Bench top analyzers have traditionally been used to test oil in water although ...
