Abstract: High temperature simulated distillation (HTSD) of residual oils is not only faster but also more precise than the physical vacuum distillation (ASTM D-5236). However, the HTSD ASTM D-7169 method could report wrong results if it is not performed properly. A verification of the correctness of the HTSD analysis could be accomplished by comparison of the HTSD curve with the one of the physical vacuum distillation methods (ASTM D-1160 or ASTM D-5236). The calibration blend, design of the liner, the GC inlet temperature, and the concentration of heavy oil sample in CS2 were found to have a considerable impact on the correctness of the reported results. The conversion of HTSD in ASTM D-5236 developed in this work is able to predict the distillation curve of the ASTM D-5236 vacuum distillation with almost the same precision as its repeatability of the method.
