Field Test for Quantifying Water In Used Oil - Percent Range
On-Site Test kit for Quantifying Water in Used Oil, (Waste Oil) and Other Hydrocarbon Matrixes
U.S. EPA SW-846 Draft Method 9001
HydroSCOUT is a field portable test that quantifies water concentration in a variety of matrices, (oil, paint, solvents, liquid waste, soil, inks, etc.). HydroSCOUT can quantify water content in two ranges for used oil, 0 to 20% and 10 to 100%.
It is an easy, inexpensive test that can be run in the field at the pickup point or in a laboratory setting with minimal training required. This method is ideal for accurately determining the true water content in used oil before acceptance or treatment. HydroSCOUT has been assigned USEPA SW-846 Draft Method 9001.
0 to 20%
All of the reagents are premeasured and sealed in glass ampules for safe, accurate and consistent results. Results are obtained in 2 minutes utilizing only a sampling syringe, one test tube and one breakable ampule. Each test comes with a disposal ampule that allows easy disposal of used tests in normal waste. The reagents are available in boxes of 40 tests or cases of 160 tests.
10 to 100%
Testing the water content of oil from 10 to 100% requires one additional step using a premeasured dilution vial. Dilution vials are available in separately packaged units of 12 vials per box.
The palm sized HydroSCOUT meter is programmed to determine water content in used oil over two common ranges. "Program A" covering the range 0 - 20 % can determine water content down to 0.15% (1500 ppm), v/v. Using the available dilution vials, "Program B" can measure water content up to 100%. Results are displayed in volume percent on a LCD.
The meter is menu driven for ease of use. Both programs auto-calibrate and perform quality control checks to minimize false negatives and ensure accuracy.
