Crude oil is a complex mixture requiring specialized characterization to economically separate. Agilent offers pre-configured, fast, and easy to use analyzer solutions (complying to all relevant ASTM methods) to help define the optimum refining strategy.
Our simulated distillation analyzers, built around a GC with a temperature-programmable inlet, let producers easily characterize the boiling point distribution of a crude sample to make informed decisions about process optimization. In addition, Agilent ICP-OES or ICP-MS spectrometers quickly analyze metals that cause disruptions to refinery operations by poisoning catalysts or creating environmental issues.
As crude oil is separated, refinery gas analysis quantitates the complex mixture of hydrocarbons, gases and sulfur compounds produced. Agilent Refinery Gas Analyzers are complete workflow solutions that put the latest advances performance into your hands without the hassles of setup, method development, or validation and we also offer a portfolio of compliant Reformulated Gasoline (RFG) Analyzers to certify fuel quality.
