InfraCal 2 Analyzers for Measuring TPH in Soil at Remediation Sites
- TPH testing at remediation sites
- Determine extent of oil spill
- Avoid delays from off-site lab testing
- Mg/kg to percent measurements
- Results in less than 15 minutes
The InfraCal 2 Analyzers allow for TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in soil testing at remediation sites such as leaking underground storage tanks, frac water holding ponds, produced water evaporation ponds or oil spills. Site managers can avoid having costly soil remediation equipment sit idle while waiting for off-site lab results. Sampling takes less than 15 minutes and requires a few simple steps that can be performed by non-technical personnel. The soil is mixed with the extraction solvent, shaken, filtered, and then presented to the InfraCal 2 Analyzer for measurement.
With no moving parts, the InfraCal 2 Analyzers are rugged and portable making them ideal for operation at a remediation site. They are 6.5 inches (127mm) square, weigh less than 5 lbs (2 kg) and can be operated from a 12 volt battery. Different sample stages and solvent choices allow for a measurement range from ppm to percent levels of oil in soil or oil in water. The InfraCal 2 can be calibrated for ppm levels of oil in water or mg/kg to percent levels of TPH in soil.
The InfraCal 2 TOG/TPH Analyzer can store multiple calibrations and has password protection on calibrations and instrument settings. This updated version of the original InfraCal currently used worldwide for TPH in soil analysis now has increased sensitivity, a multi-language touchscreen user interface and internal data storage. Data can be exported via USB directly to a PC or to a flash drive.
