Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) and BTEX Monitoring Systems

PetroSense sensors represent "best in breed" technology for the detection of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH). PetroSense sensors operate in air (vapor), water and soil. PetroSense sensors are non-specific detectors for TPH, semi-volatile hydrocarbons (e.g., diesel fuel, heating fuels, etc.), trichloroethylene/perchloroethylene and many other related compounds.

PetroSense sensors operate in air (vapor), water and soil.

The PetroSense sensors have a very strong response for aromatic and other large hydrocarbon compounds. This makes these sensors very useful for the detection of BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene and xylenes), which is used as a tracer for TPH leaks/contamination. The characteristic relative response factors (RRF's) can be determined for specific sites. The sensors can be calibrated for specific compounds expected at a given site, or the non-specific readings can be converted to the concentrations of these specific compounds by use of the appropriate RRF's. See how the PetroSense sensors have been used in a variety of applications.

Technology In Oil Spills, Cleanups And Remediation

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has increased the interest in technology in oil spills, cleanups and remediation. The Gulf of Mexico oil spill presented challenges to every person in the region whose livelihood or operations depend on access to clean water and air. While the obvious presence of crude oil floating on the surface appears to have diminished, the concern that the bulk of the oil is still lurking beneath the surface, perhaps dispersed into tiny droplets, introduces new challenges. Reports of water sheens and the apparent presence of toxic decomposition products do not bode well for the future of the area. More about oil spills, cleanups and remediation - hydrocarbon monitoring technologies.
