Online oil-in-water detection using dual-QCL spectroscopy Background: Industry proven methods for the reliable quantification of oil in water are generally based on absorption measurements. One such method (ASTM D7678) has been standardized by QuantaRed Technologies and employs a conventional extraction method using cyclohexane. (1) A defined amount of water (containing traces of oil) is sampled...
