In-service lubricant testing laboratories are faced with increasing demands for profitability and customer satisfaction. To help support these goals, an innovative oil analysis methodology is now available.  Regular testing for fuel and glycol in used engine oil by gas chromatography can provide guidance on oil handling. Benefits include: Prevention of unnecessary oil changes  Lowered costs associated with enhanced replaceable fluid lifetime  Advanced warning of component wear...

Volatile organics like naphtha are amongst the most challenging samples to be analyzed by ICP techniques. Wealth of emission lines originating from the organic matrix and high volatility demonstrate challenges for ICP-OES analyzers. A robust plasma as well as an optical system with high spectral resolution are required in order to routinely quantify trace elements in the low µg/kg range. For specification analysis in the low µg/kg range ICP-MS often is the method of choice as conventiona...

Over the past 20 years, advances in modern ultra-high resolution mass spectrometry have forever changed the expectations of petroleum analyses. Facilitated by advances in ionization methods (that enable molecular-level analysis irrespective of initial or final boiling point), ultra-high resolution Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR MS) routinely resolves and identifies tens-of-thousands of species (at the level of elemental composition assignment) in individua...

Oil industry started long before 1900 and is older than gas chromatography, so test distillation was used for sample analysis and not GC. Fast GC analysis of Diesel and Jetfuel already is a standard but Gasoline is not. Detailed hydrocarbon analysis (DHA) with pattern recognition uses GC analysis input to separate and identify gasoline and blendfeed compounds in 6 minutes. The composite report of DHA is input for the fugacity filmmodel of ASTM method D86 distillation. GC post-run software all...

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) is a group that compromises more than 3000 different substances that are extensively used in a broad range of applications and products. Many PFASs are extremely persistent in the environment and the human body and can accumulate over time. As a consequence it is estimated that a large number of water utilities in the US are contaminated by PFASs. The aim of this presentation is to provide an overview of the methodology and challenges regarding anal...

An analytical testing laboratory in Spokane, Washington was poised for growth in a relatively new industry. However, the team quickly recognized that, with continued growth, they would need to look for ways to enhance the efficiency of their workflow.  To address known, and perhaps unknown, issues, the team decided to consult with Agilent. Agilent, the maker of the lab’s analytical instruments, is known for assembling complete workflows and for its expertise in lab management, gained o...

This eLearning session is for anyone analyzing residual solvents or interested in quantitative GC-Headspace analyses.         GC-Headspace is a powerful technique for the analysis of volatile compounds in neat samples or in a variety of matrices. A major use of GC-Headspace is the analysis of pharmaceutical drugs, as well as intermediates and excipients for the presence of residual solvents that may be left over from the manufacturing process. The sample that is analyzed by this t...

A Recently developed, free to use, web-based computer program has been employed to accelerate Gas Chromatography (GC) method development by direct simulation of the chromatographic process. The program makes use of a highly accurate time-summation modeling approach, coupled with large libraries of data to provide absolute retention time predictions within 1% of those obtained from experiment.  The user is able to directly control every parameter of the chromatography being modeled includi...
