Rapid Crude Oil Assay

AI-60 Process Analyzer Applications

The AI-60 is here to save the day for Rapid Crude Oil Assay

Aspect has 25 years of in-line Process NMR experience in petroleum refining. With the AI-60 Process NMR Analyzer, wide ranging predictive models, crude oil distillation cut points, density, water and estimated sulfur are determined within minutes. The sample conditioning is fully automated and requires zero preparation by the refinery engineers. Critical data measured in-line on a real-time basis is automatically transmitted to the DCS to provide the ability to optimize the refining process. This directly translates into millions of dollars of savings. The technology is applicable to all crudes, whether whole, opaque or blended.

Aspect has a proprietary sample conditioning system that can accommodate high temperature (110°) and highly corrosive samples in-line in real-time. We have recently installed the world’s first NMR Analyzer (Aspect AI-60) at a Silicon production plant in China. This is a highly demanding application that has dramatically improved the efficiency and profitability of the Silicon plant.
