In 2006, the Apache Gulf Coast Region Operations group
requested that purchasing research options for IR platform overboard water
analyzers, to be used on our offshore oil & gas production platforms in the
U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Units from various other manufacturers in use at the time
were not very reliable and in need of repair quite often, due, in large part,
to the extremely harsh and corrosive environment that exists in the Gulf. After
looking at several options the decision was made that the Apache Shelf
platforms would standardize on the Wilks Infracal model HATR-T2 IR water
analyzer. Between the outstanding, professional service received from the
employees at Wilks to the sturdy, reliable performance of the analyzers
themselves, this has proven to have been an excellent decision for the Apache
Gulf Coast Region. The units have held up remarkably well and several offshore
personnel have commented on how easy it was to learn and operate this analyzer.
I would highly recommend this equipment to anyone looking for a dependable,
durable and easy to use analyzer.

The employees of Veolia Water North America, Industrial, located
at the Alcoa Aluminum Facility in Alcoa, TN would like to share their
experiences using you Infracal TOG Analyzer…
We were first hesitant to purchase the equipment since no
other location in our 300 plus site locations The unit was very easy to use and
test results can be had in less than 10 minutes from time of prepping sample to
actual results. We estimated that our payback on the initial cost of the unit
would be 1.5 years compared to the Lab testing we were doing through a third
party lab. What surprised us the most was that the unit paid for itself in less
than 8 months. Not only did it pay for itself but our water quality control
efforts have become much easier. ..

The use of the cuvette based
Wilks InfraCal Oil in Water analyzer for identification of acid oil
extractables (as Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons = TPH) from solutions of
alkanolamines is an important test used by the MPR Services Inc. laboratory as
a means of general quantitation of those hydrocarbons in samples submitted to
our laboratory for such an analysis. We extract the acidified solution’s
TPH into tetrachloroethylene and test that solution using this analyzer.
The results are very important to our work in determining whether or not we
will need to do a trademarked Hydrocarbon Removal process on the alkanolamine
solutions. The use of the analyzer is simple enough for our operations
personnel to do the testing in the field to monitor the process of a job in
progress and produce reliable results as required by our customers.
An alternative type of test would require a Gas Chromatograph in the
field which would be far more impractical for such field work.

bought our Infracal TOG/TPH Analyzer over ten years ago, and have not had any
problem what so ever with it since then. We bought directly from the
plant in Connecticut and were attended in a very friendly and professional manner
and were able to get our equipment in a very short time. It has been an
important and reliable tool to produce good quality data for our research and
services in the environmental area related to the petroleum industry. I
would recommend this instrument to any one interested in obtaining a good,
sturdy and reliable piece of equipment at a reasonable prince and in a timely,
you Wilks Enterprise.
