Sulfur in Oil analyzer SLFA-60













Overview

HORIBA introduces the new standard of transportable sulfur-in-oil analyzers, the SLFA-60.  This instrument introduces new software and hardware features to meet the growing changes in the petroleum industry. The instrument has expanded storage of calibration curves and data can be exported using USB output. The measurement range has increased to 0-9.9999 wt% to cover high sulfur crudes and shale oil markets.

  • Simple operation
  • Easy maintenance
  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Robust construction

 

Features

  • Measurement Procedure
    • Pour the sample into the sample cell
    • Place the sample cell on the sample holder
    • Set to the measurement condition
    • Press the "MEAS" button to start the measurement
    • Instrument displays the results and data output

  • Calibration
    • New Software features allow up to 15 separate calibration curves. There are three sets and each set represents 5 separate calibration curves. The Software also allows the users to choose between linear or quadratic curves. Calibration curves are restored manually without having to recalibrate as long as coefficients value/calibration data are on hand.
  • Original Sample Cell
    • To ensure accuracy and reliability of the analysis, HORIBA has maintained its original sample cell. By using the sample jig tool provided, you can easily seal the sample so that it is leak free.

  • Expanded Measurement Range (0~9.9999wt%)
    • This new model can measure a wider range of sulfur content. It has an expanded range to measure from 0-9.9999 wt% sulfur, due to the higher sulfur concentrations of crude and shale oil markets.

  • Large printouts
    • Printouts show important information, including sample ID, X-ray spectrum, date and time, measurement average value, standard deviation and calibration curve graph.

  • Data output
    • The printout is available in an 80 mm wide format for easy comprehension.

  • Safety mechanism
    • The SLFA-60 has a protective membrane covering the cell window to prevent the detector and X-ray tube from accidental sample leakage. This protective membrane unit is simple to assemble and replace.

  • Large screen display for easy viewing
    • The screen will display real-time data to check the measurement conditions.

  • USB memory
    • Your measurements can be recorded three different ways; by printout, exported to a USB memory device, or exported to an external PC through a USB interface, making it possible track and analyze the information throughout the lifetime of the unit.

MESA 6000, X-ray Fluorescence Sulfur and Chlorine










Overview

All of the compact bench top models utilize a new approach to EDXRF, Monochromatic Excitation-EDXRF or ME-EDXRF. Closely coupled monochromatic excitation combined with a high resolution detector provide excellent signal to background ratios to achieve low detection limits even in various matrices. High count rate processing capability results in greater accuracy and precision with short measurement times.

 

Quick & Accurate

  • Typical test times are 3 min per sample for less than 50 ppm concentration.
  • Less than 2 min per sample for concentrations above 50 ppm.
  • Detection limits for S and Cl are in low ppm with the upper range in the % level.
  • Simultaneous determination capability.
  • New technology eliminates oxygen interference that can vary results significantly.

 

Easy

  • A touchscreen graphical user interface displays all the important functions for routine operation at a glance.
  • USB ports allow a supervisor to easily plug in a keyboard and mouse to handle more complicated tasks.

 

Clean

  • Unlike some methods for S and Cl, the MESA 6000 models are low maintenance and do not require furnaces, conversions gases  or micro syringes.

X-ray Fluorescence Sulfur-in-Oil Analyzers SLFA-2100/2800












Overview

The SLFA-2100/2800 are designed specifically to meet the recent demanding needs of measuring the new low sulfur fuels, diesel and RFG.

Using the X-ray fluorescence technique, fast and accurate measurements can be carried out in compliance with the ASTM D4294 method, either in the lab or in the field.

A detection limit of 5 ppm sulfur takes you to new realms of measurement sensitivity. HORIBA’s high sensitivity analyzer makes quick, accurate measurements of petroleum fuel samples from very low to high sulfur concentrations - i.e., all the way from gasoline to heavy fuel oils. A large, easy-to-read LCD screen, simple function keys, alphanumeric keypad and other features make the SLFA-2100/2800 Series so easy to use.

The SLFA-2800 has an automated turntable to measure up to eight samples unattended, while the SLFA-2100 is a single-sample version.

 

Features

  • Wide measurement range (0-9.999%) is acceptable for very small content as in diesel oil or high sulfur content as in heavy oil.
  • Calibration graphs have been extended and the analyzer selects automatically out of seven scales (0.002/0.01/0.05/…/10%).
  • High precision measurement (Repeatability:1.6ppm, Lower detection limit: 5ppm) Due to the miniature X-ray tube, extremely precise results can be achieved without purging of He or another gas and this system also include a correction function for temperature and atmospheric pressure without He purge.
  • SLFA-2800 is equipped with a turntable, which makes sequential measuring of up to eight samples.
  • Standards applied to device measurement functions: JIS K2541, JIS B7995(Japan), ASTM D4294(USA), ISO 8754
