Share Article

InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers, manufactured by Wilks Enterprise, Inc., provide field-proven methodology to assist with the clean-up of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. They can accurately measure the concentration level of oil in water and total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) in soil samples. InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers are ideal for use by non-technical personnel and total analysis time is 10-15 minutes which eliminates the need to wait for off-site lab results.

InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers, manufactured by Wilks Enterprise, Inc., provide field-proven methodology to assist with the clean-up of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The InfraCal Analyzers are currently used by numerous oil companies worldwide on offshore oil platforms and in refineries for easy, on-site infrared measurement of total oil and grease (TOG) and total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) concentration levels in water and soil samples, as well as wastewater effluents. They are ideal for use by non-technical personnel and total analysis time is 10-15 minutes which eliminates the need to wait for off-site lab results.

InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzer models are available for use with a wide variety of extracting solvents such as hexane, pentane, Vertrel MCA, hydrocarbon-free grade of perchloroethylene, S-316 or AK-225. All InfraCal Analyzers are portable (operable from a 12 volt dc power supply) and weigh less than 5 lbs. Their compact, rugged design has no moving parts requiring alignment or adjustment and pushbutton, user-friendly operation makes them easy to use with minimal training. The analyzers can read out in infrared absorption values or they can be calibrated to display concentrations directly in any desired format such as part per million (ppm) or milligram/kg. A wide range of accessories, such as printer and carrying case increase the versatility and capabilities of the InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers.
