Solving Petroleum Industry Problems with Combustion Ion Chromatography


Thermo Fisher Scientific

Phillips 66

Date: 14:00:00 - Sep 28 2017
Speakers: Anna Wolna, Ph. D., Jim Thompsen, Ph. D
Moderators: Tom Lynch CChem FRSC

Combustion ion chromatography (CIC) provides a powerful means of measuring halides in a variety of samples. This webinar will cover the theory and application of CIC. A classic application of CIC in refining – the determination of halide in liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) – will be highlighted. Additional applications will cover gaseous, liquid, and solid sample types. Problems CIC helps solve include corrosion, product purity, catalyst poisoning, and material composition. The webinar not only provides the novice with basic information about the technique, it also includes additional examples to give an experienced CIC user ideas on how to solve problems for their industry.
