The RefinIR – FTIR-ATR Petroleum Product Analyzer

Press Release - NMR Process Systems - Gulf Coast Conference, Galveston Island, Texas - October 17, 2007 NMR Process Systems, LLC and Smith's Detection Launch RefinIRTM - The New Refinery Products Analyzer In a joint development effort NMR Process Systems and Smith's Detection have developed a range of petroleum analyzer products based on a mid-infrared spectrometer which utilizes an attenuated total reflection (ATR) sample interface. The ATR allows wipe and swipe sample introduction that is ideal for heavy petroleum analysis. Chemometric approaches to chemical and physical property prediction have been developed as well as analysis by spectral database matching. The FTIR-ATR spectrometer is called the RefinIR which can be utilized in the laboratory for rountine, multi-parameter prediction of  petroleum product properties or to aid in process troubleshooting on unusual samples or solid foulants.

Process NMR Associates Develops Oxford QP-20 Spectrometer Replacement

In a joint development effort Process NMR Associates and Resonance Systems Ltd have developed a replacement NMR spectrometer for the Oxford QP-20 TD-NMR analyzer. In many cases the excellent magnet and probe of the QP-20 continue to work effectively long after the NMR spectrometer has died. The Spin Track-20 spectrometer enables the user to completely replace the QP-20 NMR system while retaining the use of the original magnet and probe configuration. The product represents state-of-the-art digital NMR technology allowing newly developed TD-NMR methodologies to be applied to complex systems with all the advantages of a windows computer system (replacing the paper cartridge of the original system). Customers who have malfunctioning QP-20 NMR systems can obtain a modern digital NMR system within 8 weeks of order and for less than $16,000. The modular design of the Spin Track TD-NMR systems allows our engineers to develop replacement systems for all benchtop NMR systems such as those marketed by Oxford Instruments, Bruker Minispec, and Resonance Systems. Contact us if you have a non-functioning system that might be a candidate for the Spin Track upgrade. For more information contact John Edwards Principal, Process NMR Associates - Spin Track Division 87A Sand Pit Rd, Danbury,…

The Wood-Based Biorefinery in a Petroleum Depleted World

The Mid-Hudson Section of the American Chemical Society and Vassar College Announce The Wood-Based Biorefinery in a Petroleum Depleted World Dr. Arthur J. Stipanovic, Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) Wednesday, November 7th, 2007 Time: 7:00 pm Location: Mudd Chemistry Building, Third Floor Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York Contact: Dr Joseph Tanski (jotanski@vassar.edu, 845-437-7503) Abstract: The 21st century is envisioned to become the age of biology as renewable biomass resources replace petroleum in energy and industrial product applications. Motivated by concerns over national energy security, global CO2 reduction, a need for biodegradable products, and enhanced rural economic development, the engineering and construction of biorefineries for the manufacture of fuels, chemicals, polymeric materials and power from renewable resources is now a critical national priority. The context and intent of a biorefinery must be much more than simply replacing crude oil with renewable raw materials. A successful biorefinery must: 1) efficiently separate its raw material source into individual components, and, 2) be able to convert these components into marketplace products. The biorefinery must mirror the efficiency of today's modern petrochemical refinery in using…
