Crude oils contain as many as 45 elements, many of which can have adverse effects on petroleum refining and product quality. These effects can include poisoning of the catalysts used during the refining process or corrosion to the process equipment. The determination and quantification of these trace elements can be particularly challenging because of the high viscosity of many crudes and the presence of large particulates. This requires time-consuming sample preparation, such as ashing and w...

Be it turbines, heavy equipment, or any other kind of machinery - monitoring hydraulic and lube oils is critical for performance and to prevent premature wear. In this eLearning session we focus on titration, near-infrared spectroscopy and voltammetry and their potential to increase efficiency of oil condition monitoring. Utilizing these methods, critical chemical and physical parameters can be determined in large sample series completely unattended for faster analysis, higher throughput and...

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...

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...

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...

Due to contaminants complexity and the low amount at which pollutants are usually present in environmental samples, their analytical determination can be particularly challenging. Conventional sample preparation methods make use of large solvent volumes and involve intensive sample manipulation that can lead to sample contamination or losses of analytes. Even modern extraction technologies are expensive and offer limited productivity. To overcome these disadvantages, Milestone developed a rap...

Having the support of a data management solution with intrinsic flexibility enables laboratories across all industries to increase productivity and efficiency. As the largest refiner in the U.S., Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) needed a LIMS capable of centralizing the laboratory operations of multiple locations over three North American time zones.  At the same time, they needed a system that could meet the unique configuration needs of each site without sacrificing upgradability.  In...
