Visit Us at Gulf Coast 2016 and Attend Our Restek/Shimadzu Petrochem GC Applications Workshop

Restek’s Jan Pijpelink and Shimadzu’s Jeff Werner will provide a workshop overview of various petroleum applications using gas chromatography at the 2016 Gulf Coast Conference on Wednesday, October 12. Covered topics include simulated distillation (SimDist), refinery gas analysis, detailed hydrocarbon analysis (DHA), various gasoline applications and light hydrocarbon analysis as well as a new analysis for methanol in natural gas and LPG. Shimadzu gas chromatographs in combination with dedicated Restek columns are designed, tested, and guaranteed for the applications you run.

Wednesday, October 12, 2016 – 8:30 – 11:30 a.m., Room 381 B
Restek/Shimadzu Petrochem GC Applications Workshop

Using Alternative Carrier Gases with Accelerated ASTM D2887 Simulated Distillation Analysis

Abstract: ASTM Method D2887 now allows for alternate carrier gases, so hydrogen or nitrogen can replace helium carrier gas for simulated distillation. Here, we show that with an MXT®-1HT SimDist column and Restek’s EZGC® online method translator existing methods using helium can be easily converted to either hydrogen or nitrogen carrier gas. Because retention times are preserved with proper method translation, there are minimal changes to peak identification tables which significantly simplifies method validation.

Alternative Carrier Gases for ASTM D7213 Simulated Distillation Analysis

Abstract: Carrier gas changes for SimDist methods, such as ASTM Method D7213, can be easily implemented in your daily process. Using MXT®-1HT SimDist columns and EZGC® method translation software, helium-based SimDist methods can be easily translated to alternative carrier gases while maintaining ASTM Method D7213 requirements.
