Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) can cause hazardous classification in materials and so it is required that they are tested regularly in order to comply with WM3 and other industry regulations to manage the material in the correct way.
We provide a rapid TPH testing online mail order service to supply companies with data that can be used towards WM3 compliance. TPH can be used as an indicator for WM3 procedures, if the TPH level is <500 mg/kg then further tests are not required as this is in line with the hazardous classfication.
TPH levels are paramount to waste classification and correct landfilling of waste, this affects all sectors of the waste industry and is becoming increasingly important in the utilities industry due to recent changes in RPS 211. Waste assessment is required, we provide a rapid solution which gives evidence to support waste classification for efficicient waste management.
The mail order service can be done remotely through MTS, all we require is a 15 g sample of material to be posted to us in a sample pot in a pre-paid envelope provided by MTS. Sample bottles and pre-paid envelopes can be purchased through MTS, then samples sent back to us, once we have received your sample, results aim to be returned within 24 hours (with an optional factual report analysis). Payment will be made by setting up an account with MTS, this also entitles you to free access to all stored data from your previous sample tests on a central database.
