Abstract Information :

Hydrocarbon streams such as Styrene, Isoprene and Butadiene may form thermally unstable peroxide types on exposure to air, which could create hazardous plant conditions. Accurate monitoring is required to determine trace amounts of reactive peroxides. Most traditional analysis methods, such as ASTM D2340 and ASTM E299, are affected by oxygen (air) interference. Da Vinci Laboratory Solutions has developed the Fast Peroxide application that automates the analysis of active oxygen originated from hydrogen peroxide and other organic peroxides. The application is based on an HPLC stack including a quaternary pump, an automated sample introduction system and an UV detector. The instrument software controls the instrument conditions and also automates the data analysis and reporting.
