Abstract Information :
In current volatile markets with diversifying qualities of crude sources and qualities, early crude assessment data is pivotal in decision-making. Doing so however, can be costly and time-consuming. Methods such as combustion UV-fluorescence and X-ray are widely used techniques for quantification of Sulfur and Nitrogen in crude. However, none of these provide boiling point specific distributions for these hetero-atoms. This creates the need to assay the crude first, and run multiple samples through the lab for measuring these key value differentiators.
A few years ago, a new technique was developed in PAC to address this challenge: we named it CNS SIMDIS. Adding specific SCD and NCD detectors to a HT SIMDIS provides and analyzer that generates complete hydrocarbon, sulfur and nitrogen boiling point distribution data in less than 30 minutes, without any sample preparation.
