VUV Analytics is the world leader in vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) absorption spectroscopy. VUV Analytics manufactures the VGA-100, VGA-101, & SVGA-100 universal gas chromatography (GC) and streaming gas detectors. VUV light creates unique spectral signatures that result in the unambiguous identification and quantitation of compounds across a diverse set of markets and applications. Unlike legacy detection methods, VUV detectors allow for a more automated analysis with lower risk of errors, shorter chromatography run times, and higher analytical throughput.
Products on Display at PEFTEC
VUV Analytics Inc. will be showcasing how ASTM Method D8071 simplifies the analysis of PIONA compounds in gasoline through the use of GC-VUV at PEFTEC 2017. The method provides complete PIONA compound class characterization in a single measurement, potentially replacing the use of multiple legacy methods for this analysis. The setup procedure is easy and requires no pre-column tuning or valve timing adjustments. Faster GC run times can be achieved due to the method’s ability to handle co-elution among various species and hydrocarbon classes.
The commercial application, known as VUV PIONA+, is suitable for use with finished gasoline, reformate, reformer feed, FCC, light naphtha, and heavy naphtha samples. Both methods will be on display in the VUV Analytics Inc. booth and discussed further by Dr. Kevin Schug and Dr. Thomas Groger during the final afternoon session covering spectroscopic techniques and on-line analysis.
