The Oil In Water Analysis Kit enables the analysis of total recoverable oil and grease or petroleum hydrocarbons in water using a new method of analysis D7066-04 approved by the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials). The existing standard EPA methods 413.2 and 418.1 have been replaced as they called for use of Freon as the extraction solvent for the recovery of oil and grease within a water sample.
Freon is now banned from usage as it is an Ozone depleting chemical and harmful to the environment. The D7066-04 method is very similar to the EPA methods but the Freon solvent is replaced by use of the dimer/trimer of chlorotrifluoroethylene (C2ClF3). This solvent is known commercially as S-316 available as an IR spectroscopy grade solvent.
