Petroleum Products Analysis with a Radially Viewed, CCD Based ICP-AES Instrument

Jan 11 2008

The petroleum industry requires sensitive, fast, stable techniques for elemental analysis. HORIBA Jobin Yvon’s ACTIVA-MTM ICP-AES instrument is more than up to this task.

This instrument is especially well suited to petrochemical analyses because of

- it offers a variety of sample introduction systems: Scott or cyclonic spray chamber with optional thermoregulation; a special nebulizer for wear metals in used oil, and the optional patented system that heats oil or wax to 80 °C, including a special autosampler (thermoregulated sample path),

- radial viewing of the total plasma Normal Analytical Zone with a vertical torch,

- unique sheath gas regulation to minimize sample deposits and memory effects, while improving long-term stability,

- an optional computer controlled oxygen addition for optimization of trace Na determination,

- efficient transfer optics and ultra-low noise, 2048 x 512 pixels CCD detector,

- Statistical Process Control software for oil (wear metals in oil) and fuel monitoring.

The ACTIVA-M won the Bronze Award from Pittcon’s Editor at Pittsburgh conference in March 2007.
