UOP 938 is a mercury detection method for determining mercury levels in low boiling hydrocarbons. This method is used for detection levels from 0.1 to 10,000 ng/mL. This is a specific method that specifies a Nippon instrument.
The sample is decomposed by heating it at 700c. The mercury is vaporised and collected on a gold trap for measurement.
Within the PS Analytical instruments we use a similar process but without combustion to create a similar result.
