Sulfur Analysis in Automotive, Heating, and Jet Fuels by ASTM D7220

Feb 19 2020 Read 587 Times

Sulfur concentrations are strictly regulated in automotive fuels. The current sulfur limit is at a level of 10 to 15 ppm in many countries around the world and others are to follow. ASTM D7220 defines norm-compliant sulfur and ultra-low sulfur analysis in automotive, heating, and jet fuels. Accurate and precise monitoring of these sulfur levels, refinery process streams on levels much below 10 ppm, leads to cost-effectiveness and pays back immediately.

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is the perfect method for this application: Fast and easy-to-use with straightforward sample preparation. The benchtop EDXRF S2 POLAR from Bruker masters all the requirements for S analysis in automotive, heating, and jet fuels fully norm-compliant to ASTM D7220 and ISO 13032. Higher S levels in all kinds of petroleum products are covered with ASTM D4294. For all these norms are factory pre-installed methods available which allow norm-compliance analysis immediately after installation.
