OVERVIEW

The addition of a large valve oven to the 7890 GC system has expanded the analytical capabilities for the gas chromatograph manufactured by Agilent Technologies. The addition of a thermal zone regulating temperature for a combination of six valves or columns provides increased flexibility for applications that require multiple valves and columns.

Along with an overview of the new system hardware and its functionality, this presentation will review application of the large valve oven for the Fast Analysis of Refinery Gas (RGA) and High Capacity Analysis of Refinery Gas (RGA) and the Analysis of Benzene, Aromatics and Oxygenates in Reformulated Fuels per ASTM D3606, D4815 and D5580. Topics will include a review of hardware configuration, method optimization and analytical recommendations.

KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES

- Expanded analytical capabilities for the 7890B GC using an external valve oven that accommodates a combination of six (6) valves or columns in a single heated zone

- Fast RGA (8 min) including O2 and H2S using micro-packed columns

- High capacity RGA (16 min) including isomeric separation of higher MW hydrocarbons and the analysis of O2 and H2S using standard 1/8" packed columns

- 3-in-1 analysis of Benzene, Aromatics and Oxygenates in Reformulated Fuels per ASTM D3606, D4815 and D5580

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
  • • Analysts and process control personnel in the energy and chemical industry, or scientists involved with refining process and fuel reformulation research
  •  
  • • Process control personnel interested in refinery gas analysis to monitor process efficiency
  •  
  • • Refinery operators and process control personnel interested in analyzing finished fuels for quality and composition per ASTM D3606, D4815 and D5580
