III. Sulfur Fractional Analysis of Gas and Liquid Hydrocarbons

Note:  Due to the reactive nature of Sulfurous Compounds, in both gas and liquid hydrocarbons, it is preferable to obtain these samples in either, Treated Stainless or Teflon Lined sampling cylinders, to prevent the possible passivation of Sulfur Compounds, such as Hydrogen Sulfide, into the metal walls. Recent studies by our Lab indicate Sulfur Compounds like H2S and Mercaptans can be absorbed through passivation, which begins almost immediately in Stainless Steel and most untreated metals. Within 1 hour of sampling, 95% of the Hydrogen Sulfide was passivated into the metal walls of the cylinders. Treated Stainless (Sulfinert) and Teflon lined cylinders held 99% of all sulfurs, for two weeks or more without passivation. Although Mercaptans and Disulfides are usually slow to passivate in cylinders, our study shows that 95% of these Sulfurs will passivate within 24 Hours, in standard metal cylinders.

Our Laboratory maintains a large stock of Sulfinert and Teflon Lined sampling cylinders, both sale and use, for our customers. If you are attempting to sample gases or liquids for Treater designs, or analytical testing, please contact our Laboratory prior to sampling. We will be glad to assist you with sampling procedures, or Teflon lined cylinders and cases, to assure quality results.

 

A.)  Sulfur Fractional Analysis of Gaseous or Liquid Hydrocarbons

Utilizing a Sievers Model 355 Sulfur Chemiluminescence Chromatograph, our laboratory can speciate and quantitate all Sulfur Compounds, down to a 10 part per billion level quickly and accurately. Listed are Carbonyl Sulfide, Hydrogen Sulfide, Carbon Disulfide, Dimethyl Sulfide, Dimethyl Disulfide, Sulfur Dioxide, and a complete distribution of Mercaptans and Thiophenes. This instrument allows a complete analysis of all Sulfur Compounds in both, Gases and Liquids, in about 30 minutes.

The basic theory of operation is based on the chemiluminescence (light producing reaction) from the reaction of Ozone with Sulfur Monoxide (SO) produced from combustion of the analyte tested. A vacuum pump pulls the combustion products into a reaction cell at low pressure, where excess Ozone is added. Light produced from the subsequent reaction is detected with a blue-sensitive photomultiplier tube.

The Extended Sulfur Fractional Analyses listed below for Gas and Liquid samples includes analysis of the following Sulfur Compounds: Hydrogen Sulfide, Methyl Mercaptain, Thiophenes, Carbonyl Sulfide, Ethyl Mercaptan, Methyl Mercaptan, Carbon Disulfide, Propyl Mercaptans, Benzothiophene, Dimethyl Sulfide, Butyl Mercaptans, Dimethyl Disulfide, Pentyl & Heavier Mercaptans.
