FastHex Method Solves Environmental Discharge Compliance Monitoring

Tuesday, August 31, 1999
The new FastHex Method, available from Turner Designs, allows oil companies to abandon Freon extraction methods for measuring oil and grease discharge into the world's oceans. The new Method, when combined with the TD-360 field instrument, solves a critical industry dilemma - eliminating Freon from the field laboratory methods used to measure oil and grease discharge to the ocean. Oil companies annually discharge more than 500,000 bbls of produced water into the Gulf of Mexico. The EPA requires water discharged to the ocean, contain no more than 29 ppm of oil and grease. Limits in other parts of this world typically exceed the stringent U.S. standard. The key features of the FastHex Method replicate the simplicity of the traditional Freon extraction methods, but speed the analysis time and eliminate handling errors. This means the oil and grease measurements are more repeatable and accurate. With oil and grease results available in fewer than five minutes, innovative steps eliminate handling errors and cross contamination. Circle XX
