Accurate elemental analysis of low silicon, sulfur and chlorine content in petroleum products and automotive fuels

This data sheet describes the analysis of low-level silicon, sulfur and chlorine in petrochemical products and automotive fuels with the Epsilon 3X.

Analysis of silicon, sulfur and chlorine in petroleum products and automotive fuels is crucial to conform to increasingly stringent environmental regulations. Additionally, high concentrations of these elements have detrimental effects on engine performance and often need to be determined at low levels.
X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) is widely used for the analysis of these elements. Simple sample preparation, high accuracy and precision and good detection limits are the principle reasons for this choice.
