MEASURING VOC'S IN WATER
Water contains many toxic hydrocarbons. For industrial sites it is as important to check the quality of the water as it is to check the quality of the air. Measurements are recommended upstream of treatment plants to determine if upstream and/or downstream treatment is required to verify the effectiveness of the treatment process before discharge. In addition to a SYNSPEC GC, the SYNSPEC purge and separation system collects hydrocarbons from raw and drinking water for on-line measurement. The main advantage of this measurement compared to laboratory analysis is the direct access to the results.
