The samples can be analyzed on: Aldehd content, Appearance, Density @ 20C, Nitrogen, InOrganic Chloride, Sulfate, Total sulfur, Water (coulometric), Water (titrimetric), involatile material content, Copper, Phosphorus, Purity , Acetone, Acetaldehyde, Acetal, Benzene,Cyclohexane, Crotonaldehyde, DEG, DIOXANE,Ethylacetate, ethanol,, electrical conductivity , Iso Butanol, Iso Propanol,MEG, MEthanol (Fuel-.Bio), n-Amylalcohol, n-Butanol, n-Propanol, Sec-Amylalcohol, sec-Butanol, tert-Amylalcohol, tert-Butanol, and methyl 1 butanol.
