SGS Unveils New Liquefied Petroleum Gas Testing Capabilities at Our Dubai Laboratory

July 18, 2022

We are pleased to announce that our Dubai lab is now offering liquefied petroleum gas testing services.

Our Dubai lab's new testing capabilities are focused on analytical services for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), including:

  • Compositional analysis by GC (ASTM D2163)
  • Sulfur content (ASTM D6667)
  • Vapor pressure (ASTM D2598)
  • Density on composition (ASTM D2598)
  • Residue on evaporation (ASTM D2158)
  • Copper corrosion (ASTM D1838)

We also offer predictive modeling services for theoretical blending of propane and butane, helping our clients to deal with different qualities of feedstocks and enabling them to quickly adapt blending formulations in their facilities in order to reach the customer's required product specification.

This adds to the extensive testing capabilities already offered by our Dubai lab, including HPLC analysis, gas chromatography, ICP (OES) analysis, FTIR analysis and UV spectrometry, enabling us to provide a more complete service for clients. By offering LPG testing in-house, we will also eliminate reliance on subcontracting, ensuring full control over testing and reducing turnaround times.
