Meet today’s regulatory challenges with guidance from on-demand webinars and standards application methodologies.
Confidently determine composition and calorific value
The recent expansion of natural gas exploration and production has impacted market dynamics in a big way. For example, global natural gas prices are primarily based on energy content and other parameters measured by GC.
New technologies—such as the Agilent 7890B GC—deliver extended laboratory capabilities, and are easily configurable to any standard or custom method. They provide excellent chromatographic resolution and performance reliability when combined with Agilent columns, electronic pressure control, and linear flame ionization detectors.
Crude oil, fuels, and petroleum products are produced and traded globally according to standard specifications. Agilent analytical solutions are recognized quality assurance standards for the entire crude oil and fuels supply chain.
Meet requirements for elemental and organometallic testing of crude oil, feedstocks, and fuels with Agilent MP-AES, ICP-MS, and AA systems
Perform confident refinery gas analysis, simulated distillation, and LPG testing with Agilent GC and GC/MS analyzers for refining
Confidently determine benzene, aromatics, oxygenates, and olefins per standard methods with Agilent GC and GC/MS fuel testing and gasoline analyzers
Petrochemical feedstocks are primarily composed of natural gas condensates, while refinery off gas and naphtha are used to produce polymer-grade ethylene and propylene monomers. Agilent analyzers—configured for ethylene specification testing—enable trace-level detection of elements, permanent gases, and hydrocarbon contaminants in polymer-grade ethylene and propylene.
Determine the elemental content and organometallic compounds in condensates and naphtha feedstocks with the Agilent 5977B MS
Perform detailed hydrocarbon analysis and measure oxygenate content with Agilent GC analyzers—including the world-renowned 7890B GC
Analyze contaminants in olefin production streams and polymer-grade ethylene/propylene with Agilent GC and GC/MS analyzers, and GC-ICP-MS systems for olefin production
Meet the growing demand for alternative energy development
Biofuels—primarily biodiesel and ethanol products—make up approximately four percent of the global fuels consumption, and are typically blended into conventional petroleum fuels. Some of the unique challenges presented by biofuels include biological growth and oxidative degradation during storage. Blended fuels containing biofuels must also be tested to ensure they meet diesel and gasoline engine operating parameters.
You can confidently determine ethanol purity and detect biodiesel contaminants with Agilent analyzers, which are configured based on ASTM standard methods. For field work, you can rely on our portable systems—including the 490 Micro GC biogas analyzer, the 4500 FTIR analyzer, and 5500 FTIR analyzer. Trace metal impurities can be determined using ICP-MS, while elements such as sulfur can be measured accurately using ICP-QQQ.
Optimize efficiency and savings at every step of the supply chain
From evaluating raw materials… to predicting behavior… to determining your finished product’s effects on the environment… each stage of the polymer supply chain involves rigorous analysis. You can ensure that every end result meets quality and safety standards by partnering with Agilent for your polymer analysis, together, we can help you:
Identify contaminants and confirm raw materials and polymers
Characterize polymers to optimize their engineering and performance
Quantify banned or restricted substances to stay compliant with current and emerging regulations
