Based on using the DRH-008Sstandard containing the straight chain Alkanes from C8 to C40, a window can be established where the Petrochemical product would be present in the chromatogram. This defined Alkane window is useful to quickly identify weathered or multiple Petrochemical products by the hydrocarbon window they encompass.

Single Source Contamination

Defining a specific Petrochemical pattern to a known Alkane hydrocarbon range allows the chemist to calculate a Gross Hydrocarbon concentration using the Petrochemical calibration standard that is the closest match.

The hydrocarbon range defines the starting and end points used to establish an area response or actual response factor for each Petrochemical calibration standard. Quantification of the sample by other laboratories using the same standardized Alkane defined window should yield similar results.

Multiple Source orWeathered Contamination

This technique is very useful for weathered or mixed fuel patterns (gasoline/diesel) where a gross hydrocarbon concentration is being established for each of the fuels present in the soil or water sample. Better inter-laboratory reproducibility can be achieved by defining the window segment for each fuel in a mixed fuel sample (gasoline portion/diesel portion) and quantifying the defined segment with that same representative portion from the actual Petrochemical calibration standard.Calibrate on UsforTPH Identification

Analytical chemists need to identify Petrochemical spills. They also have to quantify the gross hydrocarbon concentration. This decision-making process becomes even more challenging if the Petrochemical product has weathered in the environment or if multiple petrochemical products have spilled or leaked at the sampling site.

AccuStandard has prepared a select group of representative Petrochemical products (Cat. # TPH-SET) typically found when leaking or spill assessment Phase 1, 2, or 3 site investigation is conducted.

The TPH Technical Reference Guide (Cat. # BOOK-TPH) allows the chemist to identify the Petrochemical product against reference chromatography for various related Petroleum products found during UST/LUFT/LUSTsite investigation. The Petrochemical reference standards (Cat. # TPH-SET) presented in the TPH book were analyzed by an optimized set of operating conditions to allow good pattern recognition in under a half hour and to establish a defined C8 to C40 Alkane hydrocarbon window.


Use of the reference guide in conjunction with the TPH pattern Identification Standards (Cat. # TPH-SET) optimizes identification of laboratory samples. In addition, the chromatography in the book shows each fuel pattern and an overlay to our Multi State Window Defining Standard (Cat. # DRH-008S).

The DRH-008S"Window Defining Standard" is used to establish the beginning and ending points in the Petrochemical chromatogram.

New PTSamples Gasoline & Diesel

The new Gasoline PTsample allows laboratories to test for gasoline TPH. This sample can also be used to test for the BTEX concentrations so the lab can use this product for method 602, 8020, 8021 and 8015 modified. Reduce analytical bias by using the recommended calibration standard listed with the PTsample when conducting PTstudies. AccuStandard is the one ISO 9001 standard manufacturer capable of supplying not only the PTsample(s), but also a wide variety of calibration standards to meet your specific TPH requirement.

Technical Note

AccuStandard's Precison and Recovery (PAR) Spiking Solution was developed for the new Method 1664. This performance based method was developed to replace gravimetric procedures which had Freon-113 as the extraction solvent. Each standard is packaged in a flame sealed ampule conveniently sized for quality control of the analytical batch.

Technical Note

Simultaneous BTEX / Gasoline QA/QC AccuStandard's QA/QC department has certified the benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene and xylene concentrations in our unleaded gasoline standard (GA-001-20X-BTEX& in AK-101.0-GCS-BTEX). Use of either standard allows the analytical chemist with a single injection to verify that QA/QC requirements are being met for the BTEX analytes as well as for the gasoline.

Since formulating the standards for the Alaskan method and due to numerous laboratory requests, we have added a new multi-source certified BTEX in gasoline composite mix (AK-101.0-GCS-BTEX). The BTEX values for this multi-source calibration standard have been determined through in-house analysis against a BTEX multi-level calibration curve, and are listed on the Certificate.
