PIONA has long been the preferred approach to characterize petroleum streams by hydrocarbon group type. The technique is based on the separation of individual hydrocarbon groups by utilizing a multitude of complex analytical techniques and methods. These various approaches tend to limit scope to a subset of hydrocarbon groups or specific compounds of interest which results in added complexity, higher costs, lower productivity, and less confidence in results.
VUV Analytics’ innovative fuels analyzer for finished gasoline changes the norm by providing an automated, fast, and accurate approach to complete compound class characterization of paraffins, isoparaffins, olefins, napththlenes, and aromatics (PIONA), and more. The VUV Fuels Analyzer for Finished Gasoline combines the power of Vacuum Ultraviolet Spectroscopy (VUV) with the push-button simplicity of VUV Analyze Software™ and is the only system capable of performing the complete analysis as described in ASTM D8071.
This webinar will provide a technical overview of the ASTM D8071 method, EPA equivalency to other ASTM methods and its current status along with a discussion on the VUV Fuels Analyzer.
Key Learnings of the Webinar:
- An update on ASTM D8071 and an introduction to the VUV Fuels Analyzer – which delivers precise results in a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods.
- How to simplify complex analyses with VUV Analyze Software™, a post processing analytical software for qualification AND quantification.
- ASTM D8071 can significantly improve efficiency and have the versatility to assist with R&D projects.
