The Analysis of Naphtha for Trace Metal Content

Sep 10 2008 Read 1378 Times

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 significantly shorten the lifetime of
the turbines.
The Prodigy High Dispersion ICP is able to provide direct analysis of highly volatile organic solvents, such as naphtha without dilution of
the solvent. The result is exceptional detection limits and high sample throughput for the elements of interest.
The table below shows detection limits for numerous elements in a naphtha matrix.
