Quality Control of Petroleum products using FT-NIR Spectroscopy

Fluctuating prices on the one hand and demanding specifications due to environmental regulations and engine technology on the other hand require a continuous quality control of oil and petroleum products. In order to run production processes efficiently it is essential to monitor relevant quality parameters frequently.

Analytical results must be available at short term to keep reaction times fast in closed loop control systems. The Fourier Transform Near Infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) is an ideally suited technique for the quality control of petroleum products.
