Crude Oil Trace Elemental Analysis Using ICP-MS and Low-Level Elemental Analysis using the “New” MP-AES
Crude oil elemental analysis is important for upstream activities such as exploration and production. During crude oil refining process, product yields can be reduced due to the presence of such elements as iron, arsenic, nickel, and lead. It can affect the efficiency of catalysts or render them inactive. Vanadium compounds can damage furnace linings and corrode boiler tubes or gas turbine blades.
Join to learn how to run critical elemental analysis and routinely measure an increasing range of metals and non-metals in crude oil.
