Simulated Distillation Analyzers

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.

Overview

Model 3023x (NARL 6411) is based on the Clarus® 690 gas chromatograph, and utilizes hydrogen carrier gas to perform simulated distillation analysis in support of ASTM D2887. The model utilizes hydrogen carrier gas and a modified temperature ramp to reduce analysis times from 30 to 18 minutes. The rapid cooling oven in this instrument minimizes time between injections and improves overall lab productivity. 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:

  • Real-time recalculation
  • ASTM default and user defined custom settings
  • Intelligent calibration table generation
  • Multiple solvent and artifact  exclusion capabilities
  • D86 and D1160 correlation feature
  • Standalone or automated processing
  • Binary images of the blank, sample, calibration, external standard, and report are stored in the saved SDF result file
  • Set Custom % off Distillation Reports
  • Custom Cut-Point Reporting
  • Custom QC Reporting
  • Link to Additional Applications upon Completion
  • Send Report Files via Email
  • Customize Reference Oil Lots
  • Customize Boiling Point Libraries
  • Calculation of D56, D93, and D3828 Flash Point per ASTM D7215-08
  • Automatic D86 and D1160 Correlation Report Options, With User-Defined D86 and D1160 Correlations That Can Be Made Based on Sample Specific Analysis Data

PerkinElmer’s Dragon SimDist includes all methods and modes of simulated distillation analyses, including:
