Sitelab Corporation manufactures high-quality portable laboratory instruments and supplies to measure petroleum contaminants for a wide range of applications. We sell and rent equipment worldwide, and provide laboratory services to the environmental remediation and oil and gas markets.
For over 20 years, Sitelab has been the industry leader in ultraviolet fluorescence technology (UVF) to detect concentrations of hydrocarbons found in gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, heating oils, waste oils, coal tars, coal ash, creosote, crude oils, asphalt, oil-on-metal, and many other contaminants. UVF is a highly accurate tool compared to laboratory GC test methods. Samples are extracted in solvent using test kits, and analysed in minutes. Detection limits are in the low ppb range.
Used in the laboratory or in the field, Sitelab’s accuracy, speed, and low cost per sample allows customers to delineate contaminated sites much more thoroughly, while reducing the number of samples, or the need to send samples off-site for laboratory confirmation. This results in savings in disposal costs, treatment, time, and labour.
