S2 RANGER, Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence

Determination of Low Sulfur in Automotive Fuels and Petroleum Products

In the refining process, sulfur concentrations are reduced from several percent in crude oil to low ppm levels in gasoline. This reduction requires close process control. To ensure and control petroleum product quality, sulfur analysis is also critical along the supply chain in pipelines, tank farms and customs.

The S2 RANGER with XFlash® SDD technology is the perfect match for the determination of low sulfur concentrations in automotive fuels and other petroleum products. Measurement reproducibility and long term stability data are excellent, showing how the S2 RANGER exceeds international standards for sulfur control.

Rapid process control by EDXRF with the S2 RANGER in cement

In the cement industry, production steps must be monitored closely on a daily basis in order to meet high demands on composition uniformity and overall product quality. In cement manufacturing, the S2 RANGER is well-suited as a supplementary system for process control.

The energy resolution and pulse processing performance of the XFlash® detector enable the S2 RANGER to measure not only the usual cement compounds in pellets but also allows it to directly calculate cement modules, such as the Bogue compounds, C3S, C2S, C3A, and C4AF, and the ratios LSF, SM, and AM.
