Distillation Standards

ASTM D2887 Simulated Distillation - Reference Gas Oil No. 2
VHG Labs’ Reference Gas Oil No. 2 reference standard is intended for use in the determination of boiling range distribution of petroleum fractions by GC, in accordance with ASTM D2887.  The results are from an inter-laboratory study.

ASTM D86 Group 1 & 2 Synthetic Distillation Standard
VHG Labs’ Group 1 & 2 Distillation Standard is intended for use in accordance with ASTM Method D86 Dis­tillation Groups 1 & 2 and ASTM D850, for distillation of petroleum products at atmospheric pressure. This standard is a synthetic blend of hydrocarbons that boil in the temperature range specified in ASTM D86 Distilla­tion Groups 1 & 2. It covers the boiling range 129°F to 368°F (54°C to 187°C), and was verified by consensus analysis.

ASTM D86 Group 4 Distillation Standard
VHG Labs’ Group 4 Distillation Standard is intended for use in accordance with ASTM Method D86 Distillation Group 4 for distillation of petroleum products at atmospheric pressure. This standard is a diesel oil whose distil­lation range is specified in ASTM D86 Distillation Group 4. It covers the boiling range 379º F to 700º F (193º to 371º C) and was verified by consensus analysis.
