Crude oils contain as many as 45 elements, many of which can have adverse effects on petroleum refining and product quality. These effects can include poisoning of the catalysts used during the refining process or corrosion to the process equipment. The determination and quantification of these trace elements can be particularly challenging because of the high viscosity of many crudes and the presence of large particulates. This requires time-consuming sample preparation, such as ashing and w...

Karl Fischer titration is an analytical technique widely used by chemists throughout the petroleum related sector.  Many chemists will agree that accurate results are most important followed by delivering results quickly, consistently and safely.  Smooth transitions between testing runs is also highly desirable. There are a number different KF methods available to cover the spectrum of samples within the hydrocarbon markets.  This webinar will give insights into which methods are best e...

Be it turbines, heavy equipment, or any other kind of machinery - monitoring hydraulic and lube oils is critical for performance and to prevent premature wear. In this eLearning session we focus on titration, near-infrared spectroscopy and voltammetry and their potential to increase efficiency of oil condition monitoring. Utilizing these methods, critical chemical and physical parameters can be determined in large sample series completely unattended for faster analysis, higher throughput and...

Water content in lubricants and other petrochemical products is a critical parameter that has to be closely monitored in the manufacturing of such commodities and all along the value chain. The presence of moisture in fuel and lubricants promotes corrosion and engine wear negatively affecting performance and resulting in the plugging of filters. Moreover, moisture can impede the effect of additives and promote growth of deleterious bacterial organisms. Knowing about the water content helps...

An overview of HRMS and Informatics solutions for structural elucidation workflows in lubricant additive package research and development. In this eLearning session we will outline a simple and efficient workflow that uses high resolution mass spectrometry and statistical analysis of the acquired data to understand the differences between several automotive lubricant oils at a molecular level. This approach is particularly useful in comparing two similar products and in the identificati...

Precision, accuracy and robustness are key words and essential parameters to determine the effectiveness of any analytical application. Surveyors, refinery, and QC labs must determine the Nitrogen and Sulfur content with fewer personnel while the number of samples keep increasing and the time to report is under pressure. Moreover, all these analyses must be done in compliance with a variety of test methods, such as the ASTM D5453, ASTMD4629 and ASTM D6667. All these factors are pressing on...

Are you tired of always searching for the latest Safety Data Sheet of a reagent? Are you tired of always having doubts about the up-to-dateness of a label? Are you tired of missing your mother tongue on a label? Are you tired of using a “non”-hazardous chemical which shows a high reactivity and does not smell healthy? Are you tired of working with obviously incorrectly classified self-made neat chemicals or mixtures? Are you tired of being flooded with useless information but not getting...

Join ABB and Tarmac / CRH for a 60-minute conversation about continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS), reviewing their decade-long partnership, how it is evolving to meet changing cement industry needs, and what the future holds. Until recently, high quality CEMS products and responsive field service were what mattered most to plant operators. Nowadays, digital software solutions are helping to maximize hardware up-time and minimize on-site support. And new approaches to delivering...
