Sulfur analyzers suited for lab, at-line, on-line applications
A range of Total Sulfur analyzers from Thermo Electron Corp. addresses laboratory, at-line, and on-line applications in the refinery, hydrocarbon, and petrochemical sections.
A range of Total Sulfur analyzers from Thermo Electron Corp . addresses laboratory, at-line, and on-line applications in the refinery, hydrocarbon, and petrochemical sections. From XRF (x-ray fluorescence) to controlled combustion and sensitive detection, the line complies with the lower specifications on sulfur that have been set until 2010 for refinery products, such as gasoline and diesel products.
Included in the line of total sulfur analyzers from Thermo Electron Corp. are the TS 3000 (left), which measures total sulfur in a wide range of solid, high viscous, liquid, and gaseous samples, and Sola II, which measures and controls gas or liquid phase sample sulfur content.
Because refinery processes require specific analytical solutions to achieve optimal performance when performing sulfur analyses, each analyzer is designed for specific tasks. All use a simple design, have low utility requirements, comprehensive diagnostics, and data communications. Among devices offered are the ECS 1200 and TS 3000, which measure total sulfur rapidly and accurately in a wide range of solid, high viscous, liquid, and gaseous samples. Functionality can be upgraded to include total chlorine analysis.
Also included is the ARL Optim’x, a user-friendly WDXRF (wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence) system that incorporates the company’s SmartGonio technology for analyzing elements from fluoride to uranium. It can be fitted with MultiChormators for simultaneous analysis and does not require water cooling. Sola II is designed for measuring and controlling gas or liquid phase sample sulfur content. SphiNCX multi-elemental bench top analyzer has a four-in-one configuration allowing it to conduct analysis of total sulfur (TS), total nitrogen (TN), total carbon (TC), and total chlorine (TX) with one instrument.
