AC 8612 - Boiling Point Distribution


GOST 2177

The AC Analytical Controls® AC8612 application delivers ASTM D86 correlated data for naphtha and gasoline samples within ASTM D86 groups 0, 1, and 2 in 15 minutes. It is based on fast detailed hydrocarbon analysis (DHA), and uses the PAC proprietary Fugacity Film Calculation Model for reporting accurate D86 correlated data.

The application resides on an easy-to-use, compact Agilent Technologies 6850 gas chromatograph, configured with:

  • A flame ionization detector (FID)
  • A split/splitless inlet
  • An automatic liquid sampler

Simulated Distillation, Atmospheric Distillation, Gasoline, Naphtha


Features & Benefits

Extremely accurate reporting

  • Offers operator-independent results that are in line with good laboratory practice
  • Exceeds repeatability requirements of D86 method, resulting in less product giveaway
  • Uses dedicated AC quality control samples to assist operators in calibrating and validating the system, ensuring maximum analysis accuracy
  • Incorporates True Boiling Point (TBP) reporting

High throughput

  • Features a sample throughput that is twice as high as classical D86
  • Cycles in 10 - 15 minutes

Fully automated

  • Saves up to 75% in labor cost compared to traditional D86 labor costs
  • Reduces operator involvement through software automation of analysis, data handling, and calibration
  • Allows unattended, continuous analysis through a high level of automation

High levels of safety

  • Eliminates potential fire hazards associated with D86 physical distillation and ensures high safety standards
