Fast Oil in Water Analysis would help Fracking

Jul 21 2012

Relatively small quantities of hydrocarbon have the potential to contaminate enormous volumes of water resources, so fast onsite oil in water analysis is an important protective measure in a wide variety of applications such as fracking and those involving the production, handling, storage and distribution of oils and fuels. Quantitech (UK) Managing Director Keith Golding says "If fracking is to become popular in the UK, onsite analysis will be necessary to appease the environmental concerns of those that oppose the technique.”

With over 2,200 portable InfraCal TOG/TPH Analysers in use worldwide, Golding says "The main reason behind this instrument’s popularity is that it enables users to perform accurate on-site tests without having to incur the cost and delay of laboratory analysis. In the case of fracking, fast results would demonstrate that no contamination has taken place or enable a swift response to any leak or spill of contaminated water."
