Orono Spectral Solutions (OSS) announces its ASTM D7575 internationally approved oil and grease in water testing method using patented ClearShot™ technology, to quickly, safely and accurately measure total level. This Green-Chemistry-Based method is safe, rapid and accurate so that it can be used to measure various points within a process and frequently measure effluent oil and grease levels. In addition, it can enable identification of the source of the problem. This test method has the sensitivity to identify specific oils that are creating potential environmental fines or negatively impacting the quality and performance of your process or products. No more need for purchasing, using and then disposing of toxic solvents and other chemicals, for long, complex and time-consuming processes that take several hours to perform and for outsourcing oil and grease in water testing.
Total Oil and Grease Measurement
Measuring oil and grease in water systems just got a whole lot easier, faster, safer and less costly. Follow the simple, safe and rapid steps of ASTM D7575 to determine the total quantity of oil and grease in your system or sample. Small sample volumes allow users to perform replicate analyses from standard 1-liter samples to ensure accurate and reproducible results. Simply use a 10ml syringe to collect your homogenized sample and then push it through the ClearShotTM extractor. The extractor is then dried and placed into an FTIR unit that, within a few seconds, provides the precise level of oil and grease present in your sample. Processing a batch of samples, including sample homogenization (if required) and preparation time, can take less than an hour.
