Version 1

    Application Note

    Energy & Fuels



    There is a large variation in the composition and source of refinery gases. therefore, the precise and accurate analysis of these gases is significant challenge in today's refineries. Typical sources include fluid coking overheads, ethylene, propylene, fuel gas, stack gas, off gas, etc. The physical stream ranges from gas to highly pressurized gas or liquid.

    Very fast refinery gas analysis ( RGA ) is possible with the portable Agilent 490 Micro GC QUAD. This note describes the use of the 490 Micro GC for RGA, with results obtained in about two minutes.
