Additional Testing &
Used Oils Testing for Burn Specifications
Used oils are often burned as a substitute fuel for energy recovery. Due to its previous use, used oil will likely contain contaminants not found in virgin oil, leading to the potential release of unwanted materials into the atmosphere as a result of combustion. The EPA has established maximum concentrations for these contaminants, and Trinity Analytical Laboratories, Inc. will test your used oil to be sure it meets all federal burn specifications. Using EPA 1010 and 6010 B, and ASTM D808, they will test your used motor oil for acceptable levels of arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and PCBs as well as total halogens and flashpoint. With an eye to the Clean Air Act and 40 CFR standards, typical results reports can include practical quantitation limits, blanks, matrix spikes, and matrix spike duplicates by Trinity’s NELAC accredited laboratory. Trinity uses their gas chromatographs and atomic absorption spectrophotometers to analyze motor oils, in addition to the analytical testing, environmental quality testing, and safety testing they can also provide. Serving as your consultant, Trinity will perform research for you as well as tackle all permitting and compliance issues. Test reports, QC results, and cover letters to levels 1 through 4 in numerous electronic data deliverable packages are generated for the customer. In addition to EPA requirements, they follow OSHA, NIOSH, ASTM, and NESHAP industry standards as well as several state requirements.
If you are considering the use of used oil as a replacement fuel, be sure your usage fully complies with all federal requirements. Contact Trinity Analytical Laboratories, Inc. for further information.
