Determination of Hydrocarbons in Anhydrous Ammonia By Gas Chromatography
SCOPE AND FIELD OF APPLICATION
The method is suitable for the determination of hydrocarbons from C1 to C4 (see 6.4.2) in gaseous ammonia, or in mixtures of ammonia and air. It is valid for concentrations in the range 10-10000 ppm.
The method may be used for the analysis of the atmosphere from a ships hold After purging with ammonia and for the analysis of gasified liquid anhydrous ammonia during or after loading. In these cases, hydrocarbon contamination may arise from the previous cargo of the vessel, the nature of which should be ascertained prior to carrying out the analysis
