New Technical Note on the Analysis of Naphtha by ICP-OES
Hudson, NH - October, 2006 – Teledyne Leeman Labs, a leading manufacturer of analytical instrumentation for
elemental analysis, announces the publication of a new technical note on the Analysis of
Naphtha by ICP-OES.
Naphtha is commonly used as a fuel in gas turbines. The presence of certain elements, such as
Ca, Pb, V and the alkali elements can cause the formation of hard deposits which significantly
shorten the lifetime of the turbine. The detection limit capability of an axial plasma ICP is an
excellent match for the requirements of this analysis. This technical note describes the
capabilities of the Prodigy High Dispersion ICP for the analysis of Naphtha.
