Total Nitrogen Analysis In Liquid Hydrocarbons Compliant to ASTM D4629

Hand holding gas pump in car.

ASTM D4629 covers the determination of Total Nitrogen in concentrations ranging from about 0.3 to 100 mg/kg in liquid petroleum products having a boiling point range of 50˚C to 400˚C and viscosities between 0.2 and 10 mm²/s at ambient temperature. The ASTM D4629 standard is the preferred method in many countries to detect
and quantify total bounded nitrogen containing compounds in the various type of automotive fuels such as blended gasolines, diesel and synthetic oils.

Nitrogen compounds can have detrimental effects on many environmental and industrial processes and are undesirable in finished products. This supports the need and importance to monitor trace level nitrogen concentration of various type of automotive fuels and related products. This application note shows the total bounded nitrogen analysis performance of a set of liquid hydrocarbon samples, by the EST NEXIS Total Nitrogen analyzer.

Our Impact

EST Analytical has been helping labs achieve their analytical goals for over 30 years. Our vision is to engineer reliable laboratory instruments that enable partners to make the world a better place.

To help labs excel we offer Application Notes across our entire product line. They are a resource that explains the technology, performance, and abilities of our products as used against certain methodologies and or applications.

Whether your needs center around a USEPA method, an ASTM Standard, or a sample matrix-based outcome EST has you covered. If you don’t see the technical direction you need, simply contact us. We also offer sample analysis in our onsite Applications Lab.
