Oil in Water/Soil Analyzers - Overview
Oil in Water/Soil Analyzers
|Optional Available Models|
With over 3,500 Wilks oil and grease monitors in world-wide use today, InfraCal Analyzers have become a standard for the petrochemical industry for ensuring oil content levels in water, drill cuttings or soil are below the regulated limit.
The fact that InfraCal Analyzers over 10 years old are still operating in the corrosive environment of offshore oil rigs attests to their rugged, dependability. The analysis procedure takes less than 15 minutes and can be done by minimally trained personnel. They use field proven infrared technology for measuring oil in water, oil content in drilling mud or drill cuttings, TPH (total petroleum hydrocarbons) in soil and FOG (fats, oil and grease) in wastewater.
The new InfraCal 2, the latest introduction to our easy to use analyzers, uses the same measurement technology as our InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers with added features such as data storage and transfer, multiple calibrations and password protection for instrument settings. The InfraCal Analyzers are stand-alone fixed filter infrared instruments that give results that are comparable to EPA 1664 and ISO 9377-2 and comply with ASTM D7066, EPA 413.2 and 418.1.

It is important to note that all InfraCal Oil in Water/Soil Analyzers can be ordered with or without a factory calibration. The InfraCal 2 Model ATR-SP and TRANS-SP can store multiple calibrations. Calibration of the analyzer enables it to directly display oil/grease concentration levels in parts per million (ppm) or milligram/kg.
- Factory Calibration by Wilks
Wilks can provide the InfraCal Analyzers with a factory calibration using any of the calibration standards, prepared by a certified laboratory, we have available for purchase. This prepares the analyzer for immediate use once received by the customer. Factory calibrations are available for water and soil, please specify which at the time you order your InfraCal Analyzer. This option is strongly recommended for international customers, as well as those US customers who do not require a certified calibration or do not wish to calibrate the analyzer themselves.
- Certified Laboratory Calibration by Independent Testing Lab
The InfraCal Analyzers can be calibrated by a certified laboratory. For our U.S. customer's, we recommend laboratories such as Petroleum Laboratories Inc., 337-234-7414 or Sherry Laboratories, 800-737-2378 or 337-235-0483. The standards can be made from the customer's own oil sample or from a heavy weight oil. Standards are prepared on weight/volume basis. The standards can be verified against EPA Method 413.1 or 1664 for an extra charge. Please contact Petroleum Laboratories or Sherry Laboratories directly for more information and pricing concerning their calibration service. If you are outside the U.S. and require a Certified Laboratory Calibration, you will need to locate a lab in your respective country that can provide this service for you.
