Sitelab’s popular CAL-042 product is used to detect petroleum hydrocarbons in the TPH C10 to C36 Diesel and Oil Range.  This test matches well to U.S. EPA Method 8015M and many other TPH methods using GC-FID instrumentation.

UVF-TRILOGY Performance

 

This performance study compares UVF-TRILOGY to the UVF-3100 analyzer.  Both instruments are fitted with similar optical filters and produce accurate results over a wide range of contaminants.  Samples only take a few minutes to extract in solvent and analyze.  Minimum detection limit is 0.1 ppm.

The UVF-TRILOGY was designed to replicate and replace Sitelab's UVF-3100 models.  The case studies listed below highlight the accuracy using this instrument for past projects.

Petroleum Tank Farm Site

Sitelab used on-site to test soils contaminated with a subsurface plume of fuel oil.  Soils were collected using a Geoprobe.  Consultant uses UVF EDRO data to verticle profile LNAPL in the subsurface.  Results correlated well to certified laboratory using EPA Method 8100 by GC.

Accuracy vs. Total EPH at Wharf Site

Environmental site assessment performed on a commercial wharf property in Massachusetts once used to store heating oil, diesel and gasoline.  Confirmatory samples were performed using the Mass DEP's EPH method and results correlated well.  In two days, a total of 75 soil samples were tested.  UVF data was used create map showing site's contamination.

Applications Testing Crude Oil in Texas

Customer in West Texas uses their UVF-3100D to help excavate and remediate soils contaminated by produced water and crude oil.  Laboratories in Texas test TPH using the TX 1005 GC-FID Method.  This method is similar to U.S. EPA Method 8015M, but reports the GRO, DRO and ORO fractions separatelay.
  See case study
 
 
Crude Oil Pipeline Spill in Nigeria

Samples collected from a pipeline spill were tested by a client.  Split samples were sent to Sitelab for EDRO analysis and results were the same.  Samples were also sent to a Nigerian lab and a highly reputable lab in the United States for confirmation.  Labs from different countries report TPH in different carbon ranges.

Heavy Crude Oil in Soil & Produced Water

The Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment requires laboratories to use the CCME’s Petroleum Hydrocarbon (PHC) Method, where GC-FID instrumentation is used to report EPH hydrocarbons in fractions.  Sitelab’s EDRO test detects hydrocarbons in the C10 to C36 carbon range, but the UVF will pick up heavier compounds up to C50 (bitumen).  Results correlate well to the Canadian lab method when adding the EPH fractions together.

U.S. EPA TPH in Soil Evaluation Report

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency evaluated Sitelab's UVF analyzer as part of their SITE program. Tetra Tech, Inc. was contracted to manage this $800,000 project.

Over 200 samples were tested.  Results were compared to Lab GC methods.  The confirmation lab tested samples for GRO and EDRO.  Results were added together and reported as TPH.  Dexsil Petroflag, Horiba and Wilks Infrared devices were also evaluated.  Sitelab ranked highest in the study and was the only technology that detected and reported GRO and EDRO separately, just like the reference laboratory.

Performance Testing DRO in Water

Sitelab's UVF-3100 performed well testing blind, NELAC certified, spiked water samples provided by Environmental Resource Associates (Arvada, CO).  Results were compared to the DRO in water concentrations reported by 83 participating laboratories using a variety of gas chromatography methods.
