OIL IN WATER/SOIL TESTING
PORTABLE, RUGGED INFRARED ANALYZER
The InfraCal 2 TRANS-SP is recommended for measuring oil in water, TPH in soil or FOG in wastewater using the traditional EPA methods 413.2 and 418.1 or ASTM method D7066-04. With over 3,500 oil and grease monitors in worldwide use today, InfraCal 2 analyzers, originally developed by Wilks, have become a standard for the petrochemical industry. These essential tools ensure that oil content levels are below the regulated limit in water, drill cuttings, and soil. The InfraCal 2 provides real-time results for all operators needing to monitor oil in water.
Produced water in offshore oil wells presents particular challenges to wastewater treatment systems. In order to ensure oil levels in the water are under the regulatory limit before discharge, it is important to do regular testing. Infrared is a widely accepted oil content measurement and the Wilks Infrared technology has been considered an industry standard for this application for over 20 years.
The InfraCal2 Analyzer gives results in less than 15 minutes and has a reputation for the rugged durability required in the off-shore environment. The sampling requires a few simple steps that can be performed by non-technical personnel. The water is mixed with the extraction solvent, shaken, and then presented to the InfraCal 2 Analyzer for measurement. Since the extract is deposited into a 10 mm quartz cuvette cell with Teflon stopper the light end volatile components are retained for measurement.
The InfraCal 2 has added features such as touch screen display, data storage and transfer, a multi-language interface and password protected settings. The internal battery pack allows for portability and up to 12 hours continuous use.
