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...
High Resolution MS and Statistical Analysis Approaches to Lubricant Formulation Research and Development
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...
Stephen B. Harrison talks to Andres Saldivia business development manager at Hysytech to discuss hydrogen generation from natural gas or biomethane. Stephen's questions include: What purity in hydrogen are you able to achieve? Can this gas be used directly in fuel cells? Natural gas used, does this need to be high pressure or from the normal grid? Is the result a "green element"?
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...
In this, the first of three interviews with Dr. Uwe Albrecht of Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik, Stephen B. Harrsion asks Dr. Albrecht to explain more about gasification and green hydrogen. Follow the link for the second interview, which focusses on the pyrolysis of biomethane for the production of green hydrogen, or click through for the first interview, which focusses on the gasification of biomethane for the production of green hydrogen.
