InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers provides on-site hydrocarbon-in-water measurements

E. Norwalk, CT, March 29, 2012 -- Determining total hydrocarbon or oil/grease levels to ensure compliance with regulatory permit requirements for discharging produced water is a worldwide problem facing the oil and gas industry. Ensuring compliance with these regulations and avoiding fines for non-compliant discharges requires more frequent wastewater measurements to determine the total hydrocarbon concentration. The portable InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers manufactured by Wilks Enterprise, Inc. have been specifically designed for easy, on-site measurement of the hydrocarbon (oil/grease) concentration level in water in under 15 minutes and are built for years of dependable operation.

InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers, based on field-proven infrared technology, enable non-technical users to obtain accurate measurements with a few simple steps. Measurement data correlates with EPA Method 1664 and ASTM Method D7066. Currently, there are upwards of 2,500 InfraCal Analyzers in worldwide operation – many on oil and gas drilling platforms. Their performance and reliability have made them the industry standard for determining hydrocarbon (oil/grease) concentration levels in water – both on-shore and off-shore. Regular on-site measurements eliminate the wait for off-site laboratory results to ensure wastewater treatment systems are operating properly and effluent discharges are in compliance.
