As petroleum professionals continue to refine their production processes, products such as crude oil can contain higher concentrations of problematic metals like nickel (Ni), iron (Fe), and vanadium (V). In the face of tightening regulations and increased demand for sweeter crudes, refiners are looking to buy lower cost oils that contain these metals with the intent of assessing their concentration levels throughout the refining process. While professionals in the petroleum industry must adhere to the D5708B method for ICP testing, those looking to save downtime during the process may consider HDXRF as a cost-effective, in-house alternative.
