The laws of science will ultimately dictate what can or cannot be done with feedstocks to provide the needed products. The science of analytical chemistry is at the core of understanding of both the problems of processing various feedstocks.
This course examines the way that the analytical science has been applied to defining the properties and behavior of the different feedstocks that are used in the petroleum refining industry.
This course study the essential elements of all analytical tests used to characterize petroleum. It is, of course, critical for testing laboratory personnel to be fully familiar with all the details of the tests they are performing. But it is also important for nonlaboratory personnel to know at least the significance, advantages, and limitations of particular tests used to characterize product quality.
This course will prove useful not only to laboratory personnel but also to product specification writers, process engineers, process scientists, researchers, and marketing staff in understanding the importance of these tests as well as their limitations, so that sound conclusions can be reached regarding the quality and performance of a particular product.
By the end of the course the participant will be able to:
