How do I test for Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons ?

Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) is a term used for any mixture of hydrocarbons that are found in crude oil.

The presence and concentration of total petroleum hydrocarbons, as well as oil and grease, in domestic and industrial wastewater is of concern to the public because of its deleterious aesthetic effect and its impact on aquatic life.

Regulations and standards have been established that require monitoring of total petroleum hydrocarbons as well as oil and grease in water and wastewater.

Camlab have a range of TPH immunoassy Kits which provide fast, accurate results at low level.

The Pocket Colorimeter is a “go-anywhere” instrument designed for a long working life in harsh conditions. It measures one to two parameters, many at two concentration range.



Unfortunately the Pocket Colorimeter used for measuring TPH has now been discontinued. This test can be run of the Hach DR3900 and above
