PIONA analysis by GC-VUV

The PIONA VUV analyser from GAS offers complete analysis of paraffins, iso-paraffins, olefins, naphthenes and aromatic components in gasoline-range materials. The PIONA VUV analyser we provide is powerful, multifunctional, and easy to use. Beside PIONA analysis also Jet fuel testing (ASTM D8267), diesel analysis and VHA is offered on the same hardware configuration. Read on to discover more about these devices.

Our improved and easy to operate PIONA VUV analyser

The PIONA VUV analyser can screen large numbers of gasoline samples like spark ignition fuels, providing fast and precise hydrocarbon characterisation for each carbon number up to C12. The GC-VUV method offers a number of advantages over the often used multidimensional method (like ASTM D6839). The single column analyser delivers full PIONA analysis, it has very stable performance, high uptimes and low operational costs compared to the multi-dimensional method. It is also known for its easy setup and low maintenance needs.
