Abstract:

A portable polarograph and pollution monitoring system, developed at the Naval Weapons Center NWC and described in Parts 1 and 2 of NWC TP 5860, was subjected to a series of field tests. The polarographic system monitored the nitrate esters 1.2-propyleneglycoldinitrate PGDN andor propyleneglycolmononitrate PGMN in effluent water produced by a Wastewater Reclamation and Purification System design by the Navy to efficiently remove the pollutants from Otto Fuel wastewater. This report describes and discusses the above field tests, presents polarographic data obtained in the field, and suggests the use of such equipment in the determination and monitoring of ordnance-derived pollutants.
