Sitelab's fingerprinting method helps you identify the age or type of contamination on your site at a fraction of the cost compared to conventional laboratory forensic analysis.  This evaluation study highlights the performance using Sitelab’s UVF-TRILOGY analyzer.  The equipment is easy to use and samples take just a few minutes to analyze.  Instructions and training by phone is included when purchasing or renting the equipment

Samples are tested for GRO, Total PAHs, Target PAHs and Heavy PAHs using the different UV Modules available.  The proportions – or ratios – exhibited in the sample concentrations will vary depending on how old and what type of petroleum is present. These signatures can be compared to Sitelab's unique database containing the signatures of hundreds of archived reference standards, oils and samples having known petroleum sources.

Common Applications:

Identify Type of Oil in Soil, Sediment, Water

● Gas, Diesel, Heavy Fuel Oil, Coal Ash, Asphalt

Fresh vs. Weathered Fuel Contamination

● Map and Delineate Subsurface Plumes of Oil

● Drill Cuttings with Crude Oil, Drilling Fluids

● Monitor Bioremediation, Improve Treatment

● Natural Organic vs. Petroleum Contaminants

    in Compost Soils, Food Products

The UVF-TRILOGY was designed to replicate and replace Sitelab's UVF-3100 and TD-500D models.  The case studies listed below highlight the accuracy using these instruments for past projects. 

 

 

 

Concerned about Parking Lot Sealcoats?

There is growing concern - and regulations in the works - over the use of sealcoating products due to their high PAH content.  In much of the United States and elsewhere, most sealcoats sprayed on parking lots and driveways are made from coal tar which can be toxic to aquatic life and threaten public water supplies from rain and runoff.

 

Sitelab can be used to quickly check the concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and determine if it's made from coal tar or alternative petroleum based black top sealants.

Airport Sites with Jet Fuels

Jet fuels contain mostly kerosene.  JP-4 and JP-8 were once used for military aircraft.  JET-A is now used and is used for all commercial airliners.  AVGAS is used for small engine planes.  Examples shown here are from two sites contaminated by different types of jet fuel.  Soils and NAPLs collected from monitoring wells were analyzed.  Samples from an air force base have signatures similar to JP-4, while the signatures in samples from the airport in Alaska match well to a JET-A release.

Fresh, Weathered and Octane in Gasolines

Samples from environmental consultants investigating gasoline sites in North Carolina were sent to Sitelab's laboratory for analysis.  Results show how soil, fuel and NAPL samples compare to different reference standards in Sitelab's database.

What's the Most Fluorescent Stuff on Earth?

Since the 1990s, Sitelab has tested just about every type of oil that exists on the planet.  Our analyzers detect hydrocarbons using ultraviolet fluorescence technology, which are highly sensitive to aromatic compounds found in most petroleum products, especially in coal tar creosotes.

Mapping PAHs in Grand Calumet River

Contractor uses uses Sitelab on a large sediment site near Lake Michigan.  Sitelab's PAH fingerprinting data and GPS coordinates for 100 sample locations were used to map the sediment contamination.  Test results revealed several "hot spots" and where fresher versus older crude oil exists in the river.
