REAL-TIME NAPHTHALENE MONITORING USING AN ULTRA FAST GAS CHROMATOGRAPH
Odors from the remediation of former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites can slow down or stop remedial activities. Coal tar is usually found at these sites and naphthalene is a significant odor causing component from coal tar. The zNose® Model 4200 Ultra- Fast Gas Chromatograph was used to monitor odor as a function of naphthalene concentration at an MGP remediation. Ambient air concentrations measured from the zNose® confirmed measurements obtained by personnel trained in the ASTM E544-99 odor intensity scale. The naphthalene concentration data provided the client with a database of quantifiable odor measurements that could be used as a liability defense in case of litigation.
