NEX XT Total Sulphur Analyser – Blend to Optimal Profitability

Sep 20 2022

Reliable and accurate sulphur measurements are critical for blending operations. Whether used for crude oil blending and monitoring, assaying or blending marine bunker fuels, or custody transfer, the Rigaku NEX XT on-line sulphur analyser is well suited to meet the varying demands of the industry — and help maximize profitability.

NEX XT delivers on-line, real-time X-ray transmission (XRT) measurement of sulphur from 200 parts-per-million (ppm) to 6 wt% for various petroleum streams. It represents the next evolution of process solutions for sulphur measurement of crude, bunker fuel, fuel oils, and other highly viscous hydrocarbons, including residuums. 

Key Advantages & Features:

  • Fast, accurate on-line determination of sulphur (S) from 200 ppm to 6 wt%
  • Ideal for crude oil and refinery feedstock blending and monitoring
  • Ideal for marine fuel blending and monitoring to meet IMO MARPOL regulations
  • Quality monitoring of crude at remote collection and storage facilities
  • Monitor high-temperature vacuum gas oils

Featuring uniquely engineered hardware and novel proprietary software technologies, the NEX XT system is faster, more sensitive, and much more compact than competitive systems. NEX XT performs continuous, reliable sulphur monitoring at pressures up to 100 bar (1450 psig) and up to 200°C in custom configurations. NEX XT operates as a standalone analyser or provides real-time closed-loop control when tied into a blending or plant-wide automation system.

Its other key features are a simplified user interface, reduced standards requirement, automatic density compensation, password protection, and a standard platform for communicating sulphur results to a DCS. Due to its unique design and robust construction, sample conditioning and recovery systems are typically not required.
