The Hydrocarbon Detection Strips* can quickly and accurately determine the presence of hydrocarbons in water. When the Hydrocarbon Detection Strip is introduced into a potential hydrocarbon situation, the light blue strip will turn a darker blue if hydrocarbons are present. The color intensity and size of the darker blue areas are indicators of the quantity of hydrocarbons contained in the sample. If the sample contains no hydrocarbons, the strip will not moisten or discolor.
* DETECTS HYDROCARBONS LIKE CRUDE OIL, GAS, DIESEL, JET FUEL, HEATING OIL, BENZENE, CHLORINATED SOLVENTS, LUBRICATING OIL, KEROSENE, MUCH MORE
FEATURES / BENEFITS / APPLICATIONS
Hydrocarbon Detection Strips can be used to detect hydrocarbon contaminated water in elevator shafts, underground utility vaults and manholes, retention and secondary containment vessels, and out-fall on oil-water separators prior to pumping out the water.
- The Hydrocarbon Detection Strips measure approximately 2.75” x .75”.
- The Hydrocarbon Detection Strips can detect the presence of hydrocarbons in water prior to pumping, thus eliminating potential fines.
