Simulated Distillation (SimDist) is a gas chromatographic method designed to simulate the actual physical distillation and true boiling point distribution of petroleum raw materials and products. Effectively utilizing SimDist can save refinery operations considerable time and money historically spent on labor intensive manual distillation activities. PerkinElmer offers analyzers to perform ASTM SimDist methods, utilizing our industry leading Claus® gas chromatograph instrument. Our turn-key simulated distillation solution pairs our analyzer with PerkinElmer’s Dragon SimDist© software, providing the efficient and accurate calculations needed to make operational and quality decisions at refineries.

Model 3023 (NARL 8401) is based on the Clarus 590 gas chromatograph, and utilizes helium carrier gas to perform simulated distillation analysis in support of ASTM D2887. A single flame ionization detector (FID) with non-polar packed or thin film capillary columns. Utilizing the Simulated Distillation Software, a chromatographic run representing the hydrocarbon sample is sectioned into uniform area slices using integration parameters set in a TotalChrom method. Boiling temperatures are assigned to a time axis using a calibration standard. The software constructs a calibration curve using the boiling point data. From this information, Percent-Off versus Boiling Point can be calculated and displayed in tabular form or graphs.
PerkinElmer’s Dragon SimDist software is a reporting package designed with the petroleum chemist in mind. Developed by chromatographers with over 40 combined years in simulated distillation analysis and method development, PerkinElmer Dragon SimDist software provides a powerful interactive and post-run solution for the needs of today’s laboratory. Calculations are performed in accordance with ASTM, IP, DIN, ISO, and customized methods covering the boiling range of gasoline, jet/diesel, lubricants, biodiesel, crude, and residual sample types. Data can be reported in ASCII text file (.TXT) or comma delimited text (.CSV) formats. Major features of the software page include:
