Since our inception,
Oxidation Systems has been focused on providing
high-quality products and services for in-situ
chemical oxidation of contaminated sites. Our
experience designing, building, and operating
ISCO systems over the years reinforced our
understanding of the importance of properly
assessing the site prior to implementing a
full-scale remedy. Of particular significance is
soil oxidant demand (SOD)
and its impact on the amount of oxidizer
required and the overall cost-effectiveness of
any chemical oxidation strategy.
In 2004, we developed a
laboratory method to measure SOD in soils for a
variety of oxidizers, including permanganate,
sodium persulfate, hydrogen peroxide, and ozone.
The success of our testing services led us to
develop test kits that can be used by engineers
and scientists as part of an ISCO remedial
design. These test
kits are now the primary focus of our
SOD test kits for use with either permanganate
(both potassium permanganate and sodium
permanganate) or persulfate.
Our field test kits are available in packages of
5 tests, 25 tests, or as starter kits that
include everything required to perform soil
oxidant demand testing.
