A comprehensive sampling and testing program for measuring mercury can be tailored to your requirements.
IPL's mercury capability allow for direct analysis of trace level mercury (parts per trillion). We measure ‘total mercury’ including any insoluble mercury associated with particulate contaminants.
Sample types analysed:
• LPG and
IPL has developed and validated methodology that precisely and accurately measures mercury in light hydrocarbons and condensates to a limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.2 ppb w/w (ug/kg).
Applications for Analysis
Mercury testing is carried out:
- For screening
- For quality control
- For Troubleshooting
- For Mercury speciation
- To identify unknowns
- To help establish product value
- For Health & Safety implications
- As preventative maintenance in refineries (catalyst poisoning) and in production plants
As part of our offer we can supply mercury sampling kits that include sampling instructions, Sulfinert coated pressure vessels to sample gas and LPG. If required, a Dangerous Goods transport forms is available. To achieve reproducible results a representative sample size of up to 500ml is required.
