ISO 13032-compliant Analysis of Ultra-Low Concentration of Sulfur in Automotive Fuels

May 19 2020 Read 620 Times

Automotive fuel specifications valid in the European Community are defined for diesel in the norm EN 590 and for gasoline fuels in EN 228. Within these fuel specifications the test method ISO 13032 is an approved standard for the determination of ultra-low sulfur contents in automotive fuels by energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometry. The benchtop EDXRF S2 POLAR masters all the requirements for low sulfur analysis in various automotive fuels and is fully norm-compliant to standard ISO 13032. The instrument is even suitable to determine ultra-low sulfur levels much below the maximum regulated limit of 10 ppm S. The instrument is also compliant to international norms such as ISO 20847, ISO 8754, ASTM D7220, and ASTM D4294.

With factory pre-calibrated ‘One-Button’ TouchControl methods and the simple sample preparation, routine measurements are easy and straightforward. SampleCare prevents leakages of liquid samples and protects vital system components. This guarantees minimal maintenance and maximum instrument availability. The compact instrument is suitable for on-site process control at refineries or laboratories as well as for monitoring the downstream supply chain of pipelines, tank farms, oil terminals, and petrol stations.
