Analysis of S and CI in waste oil using an Ag-anode X-ray tube

This application note demonstrates that the Epsilon 3XLE is capable of analyzing sulfur and chlorine in waste oil.

Waste oil with high chlorine concentrations is considered to be hazardous and must be treated differently than other waste oils. A common problem with the analysis of chlorine by EDXRF is the line overlap with sulfur due to the often high concentrations of sulfur in waste oils. The Epsilon 3XLE is equipped with a new high resolution SDD detector, which improves the separation of S Kα, S Kβ and Cl Kα peaks.
