Bonus Report: Process and Laboratory Analyzers

Consider using micro-distillation technology for process control

This methodology offers more accurate online physical characterization for improving the bottom line

A common type of petroleum analyzer uses a distillation separation technology to examine and characterize specific features in a sample. Distillation can be used to analyze petroleum products, including gasoline, naphtha, diesel, kerosine and reformate, among others. There are many choices for lab and online distillation analyzers. Comparing features among some of these analyzers will indicate the advantages to a faster online analyzer that correlates directly to the standard ASTM D86 method. Distillation provides a measure of the temperature range over which a fuel volatizes or turns into a vapor. Online and laboratory-scale physical distillation methods are routinely used to determi
