Sulphur in automotive fuels has been a source of toxic air pollutants like sulphur dioxide and sulphates. Legislation enforces lower residual sulphur concentrations in fuels, like the actual limit of 10 ppm in Europe. Future regulations may drive these limits down even further.
Wavelength-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) analysis is today the method of choice for accurately and precisely analyzing low sulphur concentrations in petroleum products. WDXRF is a non-destructive method that is easily integrated into industrial environments such as refineries and laboratories. Simple sample preparation, reliability, ease-of-use and accurate analytical results are the main advantages of WDXRF.
The outstanding analytical performance of the S8 TIGER exceeds the requirements of actual standards like ASTM 2622 and already meets future demands – a safe investment. This report shows how the S8 TIGER excels at low sulphur analysis of petroleum products.
