The Analysis of Naphtha by ICP-OES

Jan 11 2008

Naphtha is commonly used as a fuel in gas turbines. The presence of certain elements, such as Ca, Pb, V and the alkali metals can cause the formation of hard deposits which shorten the lifetime of the turbine. The Prodigy ICP is able to provide direct analysis of highly volatile organic solvents, such as naphtha. Because of the robust plasma generated by the free-running 40.68 MHz generator, no dilution of the solvent is necessary. As a result, excellent detection limits are achieved, minimal sample preparation is required and sample throughput is maximized.
