Good Titration Practice in Petrochemicals

From the ground to the engine of a vehicle, the quality control of petrochemicals is critical in every stage of the process. Water sensitivity of petrochemicals as well as their non-aqueous solubility requires special handling of the samples and specific sensors and solvents used in their analysis. This GTP Petrochemical Webinar offers knowledge and tips to assist you in optimizing your oil and fuel analysis; such as Karl Fischer water determination, TAN, TBN and mercaptans.

Whether analyzing crude coming out of the ground, a lubricant for heavy plant machinery or the oil in your car, petrochemicals are extremely sensitive to environmental change and need constant monitoring. Set quality limits of fuels, oils and lubricants ensure proper performance of the machinery in which they are used where failures could result in critical failures.

This webinar offers application and chemical knowledge of the various titrations commonly covered by ASTM for petrochemical analysis focusing on:

  • TAN and TBN
  • Mercaptans and sulfides
  • Karl Fischer water determination

In addition to application and chemistry knowledge, learn expert tips on solvent management, sensor maintenance, sampling and method programming to optimize your result accuracy and repeatability.
