McHale Performance has both in-house and on-site Natural Gas Chromatography capabilities. We offer natural gas analysis and report to ASTM D1945 standards.
We perform calibration checks at the beginning AND end of each analysis day. These checks ensure that there was no drift outside of the accepted tolerances. Standard in-house lead time is five (5) to six (6) business days and expedited services are available.
ASTM D1945 - 14
Standard Test Method for Analysis of Natural Gas by Gas Chromatography
Significance and Use
4.1 This test method is of significance for providing data for calculating physical properties of the sample, such as heating value and relative density, or for monitoring the concentrations of one or more of the components in a mixture.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the chemical composition of natural gases and similar gaseous mixtures within the range of composition shown in Table 1. This test method may be abbreviated for the analysis of lean natural gases containing negligible amounts of hexanes and higher hydrocarbons, or for the determination of one or more components, as required.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
