Analytical Services

EFT has the equipment and the trained staff to provide analytical support for catalyst development, reactor testing and upgrading-related activities. We have the analytical tools to evaluate catalyst supports for nitrogen porosimetry/BET analyses, hydrogen and carbon monoxide chemisorption and thermo gravimetric coupled GC/MS capability to develop temperature programmed reduction and oxidation profiles. EFT has developed a series of GC-FID based methods specifically calibrated to target product components generated by FT and mixed alcohol synthesis chemistry. Physical properties of hydrotreated/hydro processed hydrocarbons can be determined using a variety of ASTM referenced methods including high (D-6352) and low (D-2887) temperature simulated distillation, flash point (D-93), viscosity (D-445) and micro distillation (D-86).
