The petrochemical industry underpins modern society through its diverse and essential products. However, extraction, transportation, and processing of these organic compounds present some hazard to the general public and those working with them.

Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) provides ground-breaking opportunities to the petrochemical industry across the entire spectrum of prospecting, extraction, refining, and processing –from the mud hut to the fenceline to the laboratory. SIFT-MS represents a breakthrough in the detection and quantitation of VOCs (such as benzene and formaldehyde) and inorganic gases (such as sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide). Any combination of compounds can be analyzed in a single analysis in real-time with detection limits in the part-per-trillion concentration range (by volume). Faster analysis equates to better insights into your exploration, processes, and products, saving time and money, and preventing product recalls.

This webinar will present a variety of SIFT-MS-based petrochemical industry applications, including:

  • Mud logging
  • Stack analysis
  • Fenceline monitoring
  • Process analysis (e.g. for catalysis research)
  • Polymer product quality control and assurance
