Aromatic hydrocarbons analysis in petroleum and refined products.
Detailed aromatic hydrocarbon analysis is available through Intertek's global petroleum laboratory testing network. Hydrocarbon aromatic test methods and techniques used will depend on boiling range, product specifications and regulations. Petroleum products tested for aromatic content includes crude oil, gasoline, diesel, fuel oil, gas-oil, jet fuel, and other light, middle, and heavy distillates. Trace analysis to ultra-trace levels for aromatic content in hydrocarbons is available.
Hydrocarbon aromatics tests:
Aromatics test procedures for analyzing benzene, toluene, xylenes, cumene, styrene, industrial solvents, mineral spirits, and other aromatic compounds use test methods such as D-3257, UV methods for mineral oils, D-2008, D-2269 and others. Additional aromatic analytical testing for heavier products includes GCMS (12x12 and 16x16 methods), and Clay Gel separation D-2007.
