Platform Approach to Fuels Analysis - VUV Analytics


A talk from the Chemicals Summit - Hydrocarbon Processing Symposium

Presented by Dan Wispinski, Standard Methods Development Manager, VUV Analytics. Historically the analysis and certification of gasoline, jet fuel, diesel and biodiesel blends has required the use of numerous analytical technologies and methodologies. These analytical approaches are often expensive to acquire and maintain and due to their complexity can require specialized laboratory resources to operate. This impacts laboratory budgets, operational efficiency, and the quality of results. A platform-based approach to fuels analysis that employs a single, automated analytical approach using Gas Chromatography (GC)- Vacuum Ultraviolet Spectrometry (VUV) will be described. Several standardized industry and regulatory methods will be featured.
