GC Analysis of Crude Oil Samples in Compliance with ASTM D5307
In the ASTM D5307 test method, crude oil containing components with boiling points to temperatures in excess of 538C (C44 or equivalent) are analyzed by a simulated distillation GC system by the internal standard method. A detailed boiling point distribution graph is created for the fraction with boiling points lower than 538C. The fraction with boiling points above 538C is calculated as a residual percentage (mass %). This data sheet describes an example of the distillation GC analysis of crude oil samples in compliance with ASTM D5307, utilizing the Shimadzu distillation gas chromatograph system.
