Detection of Total Nitrogen in Biodiesel and High Grade Chemicals - ASTM D4629

Motor oil being poured from bottle.

ASTM D4629 covers the determination of total Nitrogen in concentrations ranging from about 0.3 to 100 mg/kg in liquid petroleum products having a boiling point range of 50˚C to 400˚C and viscosities between 0.2 and 10 mm²/s at ambient temperature. The ASTM D4629 standard is the preferred method in many countries to detect and quantify total bounded nitrogen containing compounds in the various type of automotive fuels such as blended gasolines, diesel and synthetic oils. Nitrogen compounds can have detrimental effects on many environmental and industrial processes and are undesirable in finished products. This supports the need and importance to monitor trace level nitrogen concentration of various type of automotive fuels and related products. This application note shows the total bounded Nitrogen analysis performance of a set of liquid hydrocarbon samples, by the EST NEXIS Total Nitrogen analyzer.

Our Impact

TSHR has been helping labs achieve their elemental analysis goals with dedicated solutions. Our vision is to develop innovative reliable combustion analyzers that enable customers to make their work productive and more easier.

To help labs excel we offer Application Notes across the Combustion Analyzer product line. They are a resource that explains the technology, performance, and abilities of our products as used against certain methodologies and or applications.

Whether your needs center around an ASTM Standard or EN/ISO methods, or a sample matrix-based outcome TSHR has you covered. If you don’t see the technical direction you need, simply contact us. We also offer sample analysis in our onsite Applications Lab.
