Biodiesel Glycerin and Methanol Analyser Introduced

Jun 06 2008 Read 1813 Times

PerkinElmer (USA) introduces the EcoAnalytix™ Biodiesel Glycerin and Methanol Analyser, providing a unique and complete solution to test biodiesel using gas chromatography (GC) testmethods included in both the EN and ASTM standards.

The Analyser includes installation, training, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and preconfigured methods to ensure rapid startup and consistent ease of use.

The analyser features the Clarus® 500 Gas Chromatograph (GC) with an
innovative dual-oven design coupled with a TurboMatrix™ Headspace
Sampler for the analysis of both free and total glycerin (EN 14105, ASTM D6584) as well as residual methanol (EN 14110) with a single integrated Headspace-GC sampling system.

The oven design allows laboratories to complete two types of GC analyses on a single instrument without the need to modify hardware setup and thereby increases productivity. Previously, two GC instruments ormodifications to hardware setup were necessary.

The analyser is part of EcoAnalytix, PerkinElmer’s revolutionary problem-solving initiative that addresses the global imperatives of food and consumer product safety, water quality and sustainable energy development to create a healthy and safe environment. The initiative encompasses comprehensive application-focused solutions with innovative thought leadership and public outreach programs that will bring insights from top scientists, industry experts and government agencies directly to customers. One key component of the initiative is analysers that combine the necessary product offerings with the applications,
methodologies and standard operating procedures and training required to
complete specific analyses in food and consumer product safety, water quality and sustainable energy development.
