Application of Pressure-Controlled Advanced Distillation Curve Analysis: Virgin and Waste Oils
Bret Windom, Thomas J. Bruno
One of the most important properties measured for liquid fuels is the volatility, usually as expressed by the distillation curve. In previous work, we introduced the composition explicit or advanced distillation curve (ADC) metrology, which we have applied to a wide variety of liquid fuels including biodiesel fuels. Application of this method to highly involatile fluids such as oils has required the addition of an inert gas purge in the apparatus. Despite this precaution, there has been clear evidence of thermal decomposition or polymerization at high distillation temperatures. To address this, a low pressure version of the ADC was introduced. In this paper we have applied the low pressure ADC method to the study of virgin and waste engine oils, and other reclaimed oils.
