Vic Sauro, Ph.D. Senior Research Chemist Oil and Gas Industry
The Wilson Analytical Quatbox was reliable and straightforward to use for both R&D and routine analytical samples. Instrument parameters could be easily customized to suit laboratory needs. The Quatbox allowed for high throughput of corrosion inhibitor residual samples, providing consistent and accurate results far superior to conventional extraction methods.
Client, BSc, Oil and Gas Industry
Our company has used the Quat Box for nine years to measure corrosion inhibitor residuals in produced water in many oil and gas fields in Western Canada. The accuracy allows us to run residuals locally instead of shipping them to our main laboratory, saving money and time by not shipping samples, reducing waste, and freeing up our main laboratory to focus on higher level analytics.
Because it’s portable, we’re able to use it in remote locations to run residuals on-site alongside corrosion probes to quickly optimize the corrosion inhibitor program, saving the customer money while still ensuring system integrity and compliance with regulatory requirements. The unit and user interface is so easy to use that you don’t need a background in analytical chemistry to run it. Wilson Analytical provides excellent customer support.
Chemist, Oil and Gas Laboratory, Alberta
To increase the efficiency in our corrosion residual test we acquired a hardened fluorescence Spectrometer (QuatBox), designed for either lab or field -based corrosion inhibitor analysis, a few years ago. The use of fluorescence to quantify APQs in produced waters offers an enormous advantage over the more traditional dye transfer colorimetric test in terms of accuracy and speed.
While a single routine analysis of residual corrosion inhibitor using the dye transfer method takes 30 minutes to complete, 30 samples can be analyzed in the same period of time using the QuatBox system. If we add other benefits such as simplicity of the procedure, sensitivity, specificity and the fact that the interaction with highly toxic solvents and environmental pollutants is minimized, this is an excellent piece of equipment to add to the testing portfolio of any oil and gas laboratory service.
