Total Hydrocarbon Analysers Make Elemental Analysis of Petrochemicals As Easy As 1-2-3

Mar 17 2008 Read 1147 Times

At last, elemental analysis of fuels, oils, greases, lubricants, coal, coke, plastics, and oil-based combustibles is as easy as 1-2-3. Total Hydrocarbon Analysers from Bruker AXS (USA) - consisting of an optimised S4 EXPLORER or S4 PIONEER wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer, safe liquid handling, and dedicated PETRO-QUANT solution - provide everything you need for fast, accurate, and efficient analysis of petrochemical samples.
The S4 EXPLORER and S4 PIONEER combine superior analytical performance with low cost of ownership. Able to measure sulphur of less than 300 ppb in oil, the S4 EXPLORER and S4 PIONEER can also quantify all elements from Na to U in concentrations from ppb to 100%. The S4 EXPLORER requires no compressed air, cooling water or detector gas, making its operation far less expensive than conventional ICP and AAS systems. The S4 PIONEER provides the ultimate in light element sensitivity and ultra-low measurement times for high sample throughput.
For petrochemical applications, both Analysers come with unique multilevel protection for safe liquid handling. The sample loader is equipped with colour-coded cells specifically designed for liquid sample
cups. Software detects the presence of a liquid, automatically selecting a helium atmosphere, loading the sample directly into the measurement position, and sealing the sample chamber to prevent spillage and contamination of spectrometer parts. PETRO-QUANT on the S4 EXPLORER and S4 PIONEER allows you to obtain norms-compliant results with minimal training. With its universal pre-calibration, OIL-QUANT, you can run routine analyses of 26 elements with standard errors in the lowest ppm range. For analyses against international norms such as ASTM, DIN, or EN ISO, PETRO-QUANT supplies measurement methods and pre-calibrations to match your specific needs. Save time, save money and boost your productivity with solutions uniquely tailored for your petrochemical applications. Bruker AXS’ Total Hydrocarbon Analysers produce fast, accurate, and dependable results right out of the box.
