Reformulyzer M4: Hydrocarbon Group Type Analysis

Reformulyzer M4: Hydrocarbon Group Type Analysis


EN ISO 22854, ASTM D6839, ASTM D5443, IP566, SH/T 0741, GB/T 28768-2012

The Reformulyzer M4 determines full group type analysis of gasoline and gasoline blend streams using multi-dimensional gas chromatography. It is the fastest and most flexible analyzer on the market to combine analysis for Paraffins, Olefins, Naphthenes, Oxygenates, and Aromatics in one instrument. The M4 is the only solution that truly meets today’s lab challenges, including time-savings, flexibility, and product value optimization. It provides these key benefits through:

  • High performance

  • Maximum instrument uptime

  • Improved ease of use and flexibility

  • Proven compliancy

The M4’s most significant advancement is its reduced analysis time. Other group type analysis instruments take 75 minutes to run. The M4 reduces this by approximately 50% to 39 minutes. Faster group type analysis allows for refineries to make important decisions quickly to ensure the end product produced is on spec. In addition, independent laboratories are able to almost double their sample capacity and therefore their revenue.

NEW!! The AC Reformulyzer M4 is now available on the new Agilent 8890 GC Platform.

Intelligent capabilities built into the Agilent 8890 GC give you the freedom to work with your GC… not on it. These capabilities can also grow over time as your analytical needs change—so you can keep your lab moving toward a successful future.

In addition to increasing revenue, the M4 can reduce analysis costs. Its advanced technology significantly reduces maintenance and system down-time. When combined with the improved sample capacity, the total operational cost per sample is reduced by 50%.
