The invention relates to methods of research or analysis of fuels using standard laboratory equipment and can be used in the oil and gas industry for online quality control of catalization reforming of straight-run fractions not containing antiknock additives trademarks of gasoline.

When used in gasoline engines of various brands main determinant of power and economic performance of the engine is knock resistance of gasoline. The resistance of gasoline to the emergence of detonation combustion depends on its chemical group composition, number in it resistant to detonation compounds and the presence of anti-knock additives.

In practice, the detonation resistance of the fuel appreciate octane numbers (PTS).

Developed and standardized a number of methods for the determination of PTS. In particular, for automotive brands of gasoline used two methods - motor and research, which are different modes of operation of the engine installation to determine the PTS. Estimate simultaneously the two methods gives the possibility to determine the sensitivity of fuel consumption to the mode change. Sensitivity appreciate the difference PTS received research and motor methods [1].

These are the only methods, ODA which separates the antiknock properties of the fuel by direct measurements of the strength of the shock wave in the engine cylinder, owing to what in the world they are standard. However, a significant duration of test (not less than 120 minutes, including warm-up), as well as the high cost of equipment (applies large stationary installation) and reference fuels in some cases make use of a motor and research methods difficult. In particular, this applies to operational quality control of gasoline and its semi-finished products in the stream.

The method for determination of octane number of gasoline, based on the measurement of infrared spectra (IR-spectra, i.e. spectra of electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength of λ>800 nm. When controlling the octane number of complex mixtures containing hydrocarbons and/or substituted hydrocarbons, measure the amount of absorption in the near IR region of the spectrum at the same wavelength in one or more ranges selected from the group consisting of the following ranges: 1572-1698, 1700-1726, 1824-1884, 2058-2130 nm. Perform a mathematical transformation of this signal in the output signal, determining the octane number of the mixture [2].

The main disadvantages of the spectral method is the sensitivity to contamination of the optical path (the turbidity of the sample or the dust of the radiation detector, as a rule, lead to a significant distortion of the result), the high cost of the K-Ochanomizu, as well as the duration and intensity of their calibration as to ensure an acceptable accuracy of the analysis of these devices require selective settings for each type of gasoline, depending on the production technology. Thus, to obtain satisfactory convergence with reference motor units manufacturers IR Ochanomizu it is recommended to have for calibration from 150 to 300 samples for each fuel type (in this case, the calibration is stretched for a few months). In addition, the accuracy of the analysis depends heavily on the composition of the glass used in the manufacture of cups-cuvettes used in the analysis, which, in turn, may necessitate a recalibration of the instrument in case of their replacement.

There is also known a method for determining the octane number of fuels, which serves the air and fuel in a spherical reactor, heated to 280-320°C. After the reaction Grodnoenergo oxidation of octane number is determined by the maximum value of the reaction temperature Grodnoenergo oxidation of the fuel [3].

The disadvantages of the determination of octane number of gasoline by way Grodnoenergo oxidation should be attributed primarily to the fact that in the process of testing is difficult to achieve stable operation and, as a consequence, the determination of the octane number is carried out with the pain of the oops error. In addition, this method also requires the production (or acquisition) of special equipment.

There is a method of determining the PTS of gasoline, including the definition of VERY different reference gasoline engine and the research method, the construction of the calibration according to the information parameter from the PTS and the subsequent identification of PTS analyzed samples on this curve, and as an information option use the dielectric constant, while in the process of measuring the dielectric constant of the sample additionally measure the current value of temperature and density, and PTS of the sample is determined by the following dependencies:


where a1;2;3; b; C - constant coefficients determined during calibration;

ε - the measured value of dielectric permittivity;

ρ - the measured value density, g/cm3;

T is the measured temperature value, °C.

The disadvantages of this method, taken as a prototype should be used as the main characteristics of PTS gasoline only permittivity εthat reduces the accuracy PTS in the study of ensinou with different chemical admixtures.

In addition, devices are required, self-calibration which the user is not allowed [4].

There is also described a method for determination of octane number, which in addition to the dielectric permittivity ε it also takes into account the magnetic permeability μ gasoline. This information is used by the resonant frequency of the oscillating circuit, the capacitance elements and inductance of which is placed the sample analyzed gasoline [5].

This method also requires the manufacture of special equipment, its accuracy is relatively small.

Object of the invention is the creation of an effective measurement technology that does not require the use of special equipment and it is quite accurate and fast. When this task was to provide an analysis of how commodity gasoline, and various semi-finished products (straight-run gasoline fractions and catalization reforming).

The problem is solved in that in the method for determining the octane number of gasoline, including the definition of VERY different reference samples by motor and research methods, preparation of calibration according to the information parameter from the PTS and the subsequent identification of PTS analyzed samples for this dependence, according to the invention is as an information options use the percentage of the total group of peaks of aromatic compounds on the chromatogram of gasoline or semi-finished product, hereinafter referred to as the index of aromaticity, and the density of the sample at standard temperature, which in parallel with the chromatographic determination of the aromaticity index measuring the current value of the density and temperature of the sample, then the standard tables [6] give density to the temperature of 20°and PTS of the sample is determined according to the following dependence

where PTS - octane, % PTS;

A - index of aromaticity, %;

ρ20the density of the sample at 20°C, kg/m3;

675 - arbitrary conditional density, kg/m3;

PTS', KP, Ka - constant values determined during calibration.

The physical meaning of the value of PTS' is what the octane rating is a hypothetical dearomatizing (A=0) a substrate of a particular type of gasoline with 20°With the density of 675 kg/m3. With this great amount of PTS', as a rule, the greater the degree of isomerization of alkanes in gasoline.

New in relation to the prototype is that as an information parameter instead of the dielectric constant used for characterizing the total content of aromatic hydrocarbons index of aromaticity is a parameter which can easily be detected by standard laboratory gas chromatograph with a high degree of accuracy that poses the s thereby significantly improve the accuracy of analysis in General, approaching this indicator to the IR Octanorm. However, unlike the latter to build an adequate mathematical model in this case, only a 10-15 samples lying in the range of 4-5% PTS. Processing the calibration data is performed with the use of the criterion of minimizing the sum of squared deviations from the reference values of the PTS of samples defined on the engine installations.

theoretical basis of the proposed method for determination of octane number was known relationship between octane number and content of aromatic compounds (which definitely increase the PTS of gasoline), and the fact that linear low-octane hydrocarbons, non-aromatic substrate gasoline generally have a higher density than their high-octane isomers.

During several hundreds of tests of various samples of gasoline and gasoline fractions (list types of samples are shown in table 1) was experimentally found that for the same total content of aromatic hydrocarbons more detonation resistance always shows a sample whose density at the same temperature less. This was the basis for the creation of a mathematical model that simultaneously takes into account both the total content of aromatics in gasoline, and its standard density


Instrumentation and procedure definition looks as follows:

- The index of aromaticity is carried out on a standard gas chromatograph with thermal conductivity detector or a flame ionization (the author used chromatograph type 3700, manufactured by the factory "Chromatograph", Moscow). Condition analysis: column - length 3 m, inner diameter 2 mm, the nozzle 30% of nitrilimines OV-275 on Chromatone P-AW, the flow of carrier gas 25-30 cm3/min, column temperature 200-230°C (isothermal mode), the temperature of the evaporator 250°S, sample (in the amount of 0.5-1 µl) was injected into the chromatograph evaporator by microspace. The resulting under these conditions, the chromatogram is a sequence of peaks, consisting of a narrow peak nah3-C12followed by compact groups of peaks of aromatic hydrocarbons, almost merged into one peak. The chromatogram is processed by the normalization method using an integrator or paired with a chromatograph of a personal computer (if the method used integrator Ingram-1M", manufactured NGO Hemelektronik", Moscow). An important condition for the convergence of the results is the rule of constant interpretation of all possible peaks of aromatic connected to the th as a single group of peaks. The analysis time 2-3 minutes

- Determination of the density and temperature of the sample is performed by dipping in a glass cylinder with a sample standard laboratory hydrometer for petroleum products type of ANT (or similar) with a built-in his case a thermometer.

On the basis of the test results was generated database of calibration dependences presented in table 1. The results of comparative tests (as a control we used the results obtained for universal single cylinder installations type FMP-85 configured on the motor (GOST 511) and research (GOST 8226) method) are presented in table 2-9.

Conducted research and presented in the tables, the results allow to draw conclusions.

1. Proven reliable and rapid determination of octane number using nonspecific standard analytical equipment, serial industry and available to any laboratory of petroleum products.

2. This regularity, with the same value of the index of aromaticity higher octane number has the same type of gasoline with a lower standard density. This allows you to create gauge dependence I=f(A, ρ20).

3. Calibration takes relatively little time and does not involve any technical difficulties because it requires the calculation of all three calibration parameters (PTS', ToandTop).

4. High stability of measurement results and a small error in the determination of PTS.

5. Total time identify PTS at the heated apparatus does not exceed 3 minutes, which makes possible the use of the method for operational monitoring of technological processes and product quality.

The method is new, because we don't know the technical solutions of the patent and scientific research information (in addition to the above in the application materials analogues and prototypes), in which was represented the totality of distinctive features set forth in the claims (mathematical dependence, reflecting the relationship of measured parameters and ρ20and the control that is used as a database - PTS).

The proposed solution involves an inventive step, since the indicator PTS equivalent combination of aromaticity index and density of the sample ρ at a certain temperature, for any specialist in this field is not obvious from the prior art, and requires research to identify the relationship and correlation parameters of PTS', KaTop.

The method is industrially applicable, has been successfully tested in the laboratory production control Sosnogorsk GPP 000 "Severgazprom"./p>

Supernatant should be applied onto a paper filter, dried and put into solution containing aromatic aldehyde, acetone and concentrated hydrochloric acid taken at weight ratio of 70:5:1 to be kept for 2-3 min. Then it should be once again dried up to detect qualitative and semiquantitative content of oxidized tryptophan metabolites by intensity and chromatic shades. Moreover, by chromatic shades of yellow dyeing it is possible to detect the content of hydroxylated metabolites and by chromatic shades of violet dyeing - that of unhydroxylated ones.

EFFECT: higher significance of detection.
