Measures Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Texture in Soil

Used for Oil Spill Assessment, Delineation, Remediation and Monitoring

In-situ Measurement

Measure in the field

Ex-situ Measurement

Measure in the lab or site hut

Instant and Accurate Results

Real-time results that can be downloaded and analysed

Key Benefits

  • Accurate and repeatable
  • More data
  • Make real-time decisions with confidence
  • Accelerate project closure

Key Features

  • Measures TPH in soil (C10 to C40 and above) and the Soil Texture Class (IUSS)
  • Results in less than 20 seconds
  • Accuracy comparable to laboratory
  • Direct infield measurement or in on-site lab
  • Sample ID, GPS, depth, photo and notes logged with each measurement
  • No incremental costs
  • No sample extraction required
  • No chemicals
  • No licensing requirements
  • Non-destructive

Supplied including two operating modes:

Spill Response Mode

  • Ideal for short term projects and spill response emergencies
  • Minimal on-site setup required (<10 mins)
  • Automatic calibration created within minutes
  • Automatically adjusts to the soil at your site

Site Specific Mode

  • Ideal for long term projects and projects that require a higher level of accuracy
  • Calibration setup required (typically 1 – 3 days)
  • Calibration model created by Ziltek
  • Accuracy comparable to Laboratory

Use Cases

Site Assessment / Delineation

Use RemScan to determine and mark out the edge of the contaminated zone. Measure concentration depth profiles by measuring along a core.

Chasing / Validation

While chasing contamination during excavation, detect the edge of the contaminated soil.


Sort soil according to the concentration of TPH. Use to sort contaminated from clean soil, alternatively sort contaminated soil for different remediation processes.


Whilst remediating soil, measure the concentration of TPH to determine progress and end-point.
