Safe and Accurate Analysis of Distillate Oils
Distillate oil testing methods, including thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), require a smaller sample size - about 10 mg, as compared to legacy method requiring sample of 2–3 g. TGA recognizes the displacement sequence of the constituents of distillate oil during spontaneous saturation procedure. The data collected regarding ash content exhibits greater accuracy of about 1 × 10?5 mg.
To determine ash content in oil, distillate oil testing methods, such as microwave ashing, utilize silicon carbide for swift heating due to high absorption of microwave energy. The air valve allows passage of fresh air into the heating room, eliminating fumes and odors in sync delivering the oxygen required for fast oxidation. Inclusion of rapid heating/cooling crucibles in microwave ashing method enhances safety, and efficacy. Further, microwave ashing technique exhibits the ability to ash larger samples for more exact outcomes.

Determining ‘Flash Point’ and ‘Pour Point’ to Enhance Transfer & Storage
Flash point is one of the paramount aspects for the determination of hazardous waste characteristic of ignitability for liquids, where distillate oils with flash point above 60 degrees Celsius (~140 degrees Fahrenheit) are considered safe as per the ASTM standards. In addition, distillate oils having high flash point correspond to higher temperature required for the fuel to flash, as such, the fuel does not undergo instant ignition, ensuring safety. Distillate oil testing methods such as, ASTM D93 (Pensky - Martines Closed Tester), determine the amount of light materials present in the distillate oil - crucial to ensure safe handling of petroleum products (transfer and storage) and smooth ignition of fuel.
Determination of pour point is important following the fact that the conditions for pumping, storage and transfer of oil in pipelines and tanks are specified as per the pour point and the viscosity. Industrial applications majorly rely on distillate oils for lighting purposes on grounds of lower paraffinicity equating to decreased risk of inflammation. Distillate oil testing methods complying with ASTM D97-96a (petroleum products) ASTM D5853-95 (for crude oil) standards are performed to ascertain relative paraffinicity and aromacity of distillate oils.
Developed and Developing Countries - Government Standards Underpinning the Growth
Distillate oils including, fuel oil, lube oil, bunker oil, and residual oil find purposes in diverse applications as per the oil grade. As such, analysis of distillate oil according to government norms in the US, and the UK – ASTM (America Society for testing Material), and IP (Institute of Petroleum) standards respectively – becomes paramount. The unprecedented growth of the US as a major oil exporter is expected to overhaul Russia, and approach Saudi Arab, setting high hopes for market players. Furthermore, in Asia, India is estimated to equal China in terms of oil demand in the upcoming years following latter’s sluggish demand growth.
