Verified Hydrocarbon Analysis™ vs DHA

Gas chromatography is one of the most widespread methods utilized to evaluate hydrocarbon assets during development, production, and distribution. This is achieved through the characterization of the branched and linear asphaltenes, aromatic hydrocarbons, cycloalkanes, and alkanes.

It is essential to measure the bulk composition of distinct compounds and hydrocarbon groups in gasoline for quality control. Compliance with a range of governmental regulations can also be verified.

ASTM method D8071 for gasoline analysis by GC-VUV strongly decreases the complexity and  GC run times in comparison with legacy ASTM fuel analysis methods.

The GC-VUV technique produces a per-measurement data set that would usually demand the execution of several ASTM methods (for example D5769, D5580, D1319, D6550, D3606, D4815, D5599, and D5845). It is also inherently more production-worthy and hard-wearing than the alternatives.

This webinar from Petro Industry News describes the newest product for hydrocarbon analysis, Verified Hydrocarbon Analysis (VHA), which is a more efficient, simple, and accurate method compared to conventional DHA.
