Bench Scale Testing
With initial guidance from the Colorado School of Mines, Environmental Science and Engineering Division, Remington has built a unique laboratory designed to test the effectiveness of any remedial material on soil and groundwater samples collected from a prospective site.
In conducting hundreds of tests we have developed protocol that minimizes spurious data and provides definitive answers for the determination of the most effective remedial compounds. We also run a financial model on the final data set to determine the most cost effective material.
After conducting hundreds of these tests, several trends have been detected that can help guide the final injection design, including using different remedial materials as the project advances. Mr. Taylor has presented some of these results to several consultants and at seminars and trade shows. R
Remington has also conducted numerous soil treatment bench scale tests and have established the best oxidizer combinations for crude oil, condensate, GRO, DRO and BTEX. In order to minimize costs, we have learned that the combination of thin-spread volatilization and ISCO are highly synergistic. Therefore, for soil treatment we have developed a process whereby the treatment soil is thin spread in 1-foot lifts and treated with our unique remediation onsite treatment oxidizer rig.
