Simulated Distillation Analysis of Heavy Canadian Crude Oil by ASTM D 5307

Simulated Distillation is a GC technique for determining the boiling point distribution of a crude oil stock. This information is useful to refinery engineers in determining the process that most efficiently utilizes a feedstock of raw crude oil. This technique is also used to monitor the refining process to insure the products produced are as expected. When a feedstock oil contains components that are larger than C44 and which boil above 538oC, ASTM D5307 becomes the analytical method of choice.
