NPL's refinery gas standards are used to calibrate gas chromatographs, enabling the composition of real refinery gases to be determined. This allows the user to calculate the carbon content and other physical parameters of the gas, ensuring compliance with carbon trading legislation.
NPL provides high-accuracy gas standards for the analysis of a range of refinery gases. These gases, which include syngas, coke oven gas, reformer gas and blast furnace gas, are produced and emitted during the production and refining of petroleum products and solid fuels.
The range of refinery gas standards covered by NPL's UKAS accreditation is shown below. Mixtures containing other components may be prepared on request.
* 1 cmol/mol is equal to 0.01 mol/mol and is equivalent to the 'unit' % mol/mol often used by the refinery gas industry.
