ESR applications in petrochemistry

Asphaltenes in crude oil, Aging of lubricants, Polymerization control

Analysis of various components in crude oil, precursors during refinery or standard control of the oil product life cycle by measurements of radicals by EPR/ESR has been a standard technique for decades. The measurement of vanadium and asphaltene in crude oil takes only a few seconds without sample preparation at sensitivities of research equipment. For routine applications the MS5000 offers standard data interfaces. It is robust and can be integrated as an OEM unit for industrial needs.
