Hydraulic Fracturing Water Analysis Handbook - Download
This manual is made up of test procedures and additional explanatory notes for testing of oil and gas field waters. The first part of the manual contains the test procedure documents. Explanatory documents are found in the second part of the manual.
Hach Biological Activity Reaction Tests (BARTs) Application Note - Download
Analysis of bacteria levels using Hach BARTs provides operators with rapid information about the potential impact of corrosion and bio-fouling that may be taking place as a result of microbial growth in water used to forumalatethe fracturing fluids. Having access to this critical information allows operators to react quickly to mitigate these harmful effects before they cause serious damage.
Simplified High Range Chloride Measurement In Hydraulic Fracturing Applications Application Note - Download
The Hach IntelliCAL™ Chloride Ion Selective Electrode (ISE) allows operators to easily obtain real-time Chloride values.
High Range Sulfide Measurement for Oil and Gas Field Waters with Hach's Methylene Blue Method -Download
Hydrogen sulfide must be carefully monitored to avoid serious safety, corrosion, and well souring issues that can cost involved parties millions of dollars in lost productivity and capital. Hach has made improvements to hydrogen sulfide measurement making it easy to perform by non-technical operators in the field.
