This paper discusses the efforts to commission and validate an online Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer [NMR] for the analysis of heavy feedstock to a cracking plant. Reference will be made to ASTM D3764 – Standard Practice for Validation for Process Stream Analyzers (1). Results from laboratory analyses of standards and plant samples will be presented.
