Portable IR Analyzers Provide Petroleum & Wastewater Industries with Accurate Oil Content Measurements

Fixed filter infrared (IR) analyzers have been used to test oil levels in produced water on off-shore and on-shore drilling platforms for well over 45 years. U.S. EPA methods 418.1 and 413.2 were used extensively on a worldwide basis until the Montreal Protocol called for Freon (the solvent used in the analysis) to be phased out. Infrared analysis using tetrachloroethylene (perchloroethylene) is...
