CMTs XRF Analysers can measure the concentration of different elements within the oil. We offer one Analyser and one Tester for Sulfur only and a second Analyzer for multiple elements like S, P, Cl, K, Ca, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu and Zn.
The Analysers and Testers are powered by High Definition X-Ray Fluorescence (HDXRF®) technology: an elemental analysis technique offering significantly enhanced detection performance over traditional XRF technology. This technique applies state-of-the-art monochromating and focusing optics, enabling dramatically higher signal-to-background ratio compared to traditional polychromatic X-Ray Fluorescence. The sample can be measured in a cap or alternatively on the Tester within a bottle containing 25ml of the sample for easier onboard use.
Petroleum laboratories depend on reliable, robust analytical solutions for their fast-paced environment. The devices were designed to meet these needs with an innovative sample introduction system that directs accidental spills to a drip tray and away from valuable components.
The devices comply with ASTM D4294 and ISO 8754 for sulfur analysis of hydrocarbons like crude oil, diesel, gasoline, jet fuel, and lubricants. The Sulfur Analyser and Tester are delivering precise sulfur analysis with limits of detection as low as 2.6 ppm for the Analyser and 50 ppm for the Tester. The Multi Element Analyser delivers sulfur measurements with a limit of detection as low as 5.7 ppm with rapid monitoring of critical elements like Ni, V, and Fe at sub-ppm levels.
With the upcoming limitations of the sulfur content in maritime fuels the Sulfur Analyser and Tester are of specific interest for onboard use.
