Hand Held Oil in Water Monitor

This light, easy to use, accurate and low cost instrument is used for measuring crude oil and condensates in produced water, de-salter tail water, tank bottoms, cargo heaters, or anywhere that crude oil comes in contact with water. This monitor has been developed to a method that measures oil-in-water and uses no solvent. The advantages are significant in that we have eliminated the health and safety hazards of transporting, handling and disposing of solvents commonly used in the field for oil-in-water analysis. Along with safety, the method eliminates operator error associated with precision liquid measurements during the analysis process. It is a robust method with unprecedented accuracy and repeatability.


Measures all oils including the heaviest of crudes to condensates up to 50° API and refined diesel range oil, lube oils, and heavy fuel oils in water
