Determination of Additives Mg, P, S, Cl, Ca, Zn, and Mo in Lubricating Oils by ASTM D7751

When producing, using, and recycling lubricating oils, it is inevitable to have a clear and precise understanding of the additive elements contents.  X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is the ideal method to accomplish this task. XRF elemental analysis is fast and precise, ensuring that additives are used economically while the properties of lubricants and fuels are ensured. This reduces production costs and lowers environmental impact.

The Bruker benchtop Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) S2 POLAR fulfills all requirements for the analysis of the additives and is fully norm-compliant with ASTM D7751-16. For the norm is a factory pre-installed method available which allows norm compliance additive analysis immediately after installation. The instrument allows for efficient quality control in base oil production, blending facilities or additive dosing stations.
