Reformulated gasoline analyzer

Houston, Tex. —UV Fluorescence allows the 9000S analyzer to measure high and low (1 to 10 ppm) sulfur contents, and nitrogen in a single device with a single sample injection. The UV method reportedly offers more stability than coulometry, better sensitivity than X-ray, and greater range than tape without its consumables or waste disposal issues.

Houston, Tex. —UV Fluorescence allows the 9000S analyzer to measure high and low (1 to 10 ppm) sulfur contents, and nitrogen in a single device with a single sample injection. The UV method reportedly offers more stability than coulometry, better sensitivity than X-ray, and greater range than tape without its consumables or waste disposal issues. Furnished with a computer running Microsoft Windows 95, software is provided to control the analyzer, perform data acquisition, conduct analysis, and plot calibration curves on 2nd and 3rd order regressions.
