Analyzer Description

Cool-on-column or multi-mode inlet, FID, SimDis Software
Sample type:
Crude oils and atmospheric vacuum residues through a boiling point of 720°C, corresponding to the elution of n-C100
Methods met:
ASTM D7169, IP 480, IP 545, Wasson-ECE 850

Typical Chromatogram

D7169 Chromatogram

Key Features and Benefits

  • Easy-to-use software which can be customized to the lab’s requirements
  • Can be combined with other high temperature simulated distillation methods on the same instrument
  • Can be modified using a pre-fractionator to perform detailed hydrocarbon analysis (DHA) on the lighest components according to Appendix X1.
