T-SEP® is a proprietary, small scale, thermal separation technique that has been developed by KAT in partnership with the University of Plymouth, primarily as a novel “Topping” method for crude oil and condensate samples although it is also applicable to several other processes.
This technology enables precise control over the “Topping” process and is more reproducible and effective than the simple evaporation techniques employed by most laboratories, allowing on average an additional 20 carbon numbers to be observed and accurately measured.

In addition to extending the analysis of the parent hydrocarbon fluids, T-SEP® is regularly used to enhance the analysis of associated deposits and has been used in the semi-quantitative fingerprinting of semi-solid tar-balls.
