East Norwalk, CT, September 28, 2010 - A White Paper entitled, "Emulsion-Breaking Techniques to Ensure Accurate Oil in Water Measurements," was recently published by Wilks Enterprise, Inc. Certain water samples, such as those containing detergent, may form an emulsion when oil in water extraction into a solvent is done. In order to ensure an accurate measurement, the emulsion must be broken.
The White Paper discusses 6 emulsion-breaking techniques that can be used for reducing an emulsion in order to obtain valid oil in water measurements -- whether the analysis is done by infrared, gravimetric or UV techniques. All of the emulsion-breaking methods discussed in the paper are usable with portable infrared analyzers, such as the Wilks InfraCal TPG/TPH Analyzers, and for virtually any type of oil in water measurements, including fat, oil and grease (FOG) wastewater discharges.
