Vapor pressure is the pressure exerted by the vapor in a system in equilibrium with its solid or liquid phase at a specific temperature. The vapor pressure of any material is a function of temperature. As the temperature increases, the vapor pressure increases. Water at the sea level boils at the temperature of 100 degree Celsius which means that at 100 degrees C, water has a vapor pressure of 100kPa. The vapor pressure analyzer is a device which is used to measure the pressure or eventually the measurement of fuel volatility of liquids, solids, and oils.
The vapor pressure analyzer should have ease of use and should be versatile in operations so that it is capable of testing or analyzing samples across a broad range of temperature. The vapor pressure analyzer consists of a piston which is used for the measurement of the pressure with the piston expansion principle. Additionally, laser technology is also used to ensure greater accuracy in the measurement of the pressure. The sample flows into the piston based measuring cell through solenoid valves. The required measurement temperature is maintained within the cell with the help of a resistance thermometer. A small volume of the sample under consideration is held by the piston which is moved to get the desired vapor-liquid ratio. The actual pressure inside the cell is converted into vapor pressure once the state of equilibrium is attained. Recently, there has been a growing trend to analyze the quality of petroleum products online which helps in improving quality control and achieve the desired quality of blending.
The high level of quality and inspection standards across various industries pertaining to petroleum products is the primary driver for the vapor pressure analyzer market. In addition to this, growth in the oil & gas sector and food & beverages industry is also expected to have a positive impact on the vapor pressure analyzer market. With focus on the green revolution, governments of various countries are pushing for the use of liquefied petroleum gas and liquefied natural gas, leading to their growing demand. These fuels are a cleaner source of energy and hence can be used in place of fossil fuels. These fuels must be blended as per the prescribed standards to offer maximum efficiency. Hence, pressure vapor analyzers are extensively used to obtain the required quality of the fuels. This is anticipated to propel the growth of the vapor pressure analyzer market. However, the high cost associated with the vapor pressure analyzer may hamper the growth of the market. Nevertheless, the growth in the demand for petroleum products of high quality is said to drive the market growth upwards.
