Gas chromatography is one of the most prevalent techniques used in the evaluation of hydrocarbon assets during exploration, production and distribution through characterization of the linear and branched alkanes, cycloalkanes, aromatic hydrocarbons, and asphaltenes. The measurement of bulk composition of hydrocarbon groups and individual compounds in gasoline is important for quality control as well as ensuring compliance with various governmental regulations.
With recent issues surrounding ASTM D1319, Flourescent Indicator Absorption (FIA), new methods have been created to measure olefins and aromatics in liquid petroleum products — gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.
- Peer-to-peer networking with executives in the Fuel Refining & Petrochemical Industries worldwide
- Sharing of best practices to overcome limitations of existing technology
- Review of innovations in analytical technology that result in more accurate and rapid fuel testing — specifically an update on ASTM D8071 (gasoline) & ASTM WK66576 (jet fuel)
Seminar Hosted by VUV Analytics
VUV Analytics manufactures universal vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) spectroscopic detectors that provide a new dimension of chemical analysis accuracy. VUV light creates unique spectral signatures in the gas phase that result in unambiguous compound identification and quantitative analysis across a wide spectrum of complex applications. Unlike legacy GC detectors, VUV detection delivers scalable data analysis automation with reduced analytical error and higher analytical throughput. Learn more at www.vuvanalytics.com.
