Designed for high-accuracy analysis of petrochemicals for sulfur content in wide concentration range

ElvaX S Lab is designed especially for analysis of petrochemicals for sulfur content in wide concentration range from 2 ppm to 5%. Many international standards describe analysis method for sulfur in fuel and oil. Sulfur forms damaging sulfates in vehicle exhaust and pollute the atmosphere by sulfur oxides. Furthermore sulfur reduces fuel stability and effects on engine performance. Maximum permissible level of sulfur in fuel decreases from year to year. 2003/17/EC (or EURO VI) directive requires a maximum amount of sulfur in fuel of 10 ppm. ElvaX Sulfur in Oil analyzer fully meets the requirements of ASTM D4294, ISO 8754.

Accuracy

Unique configuration of x-ray tube and geometry designed for best sensitivity to sulfur. Limit of detection is only 2 ppm!

Speed

Sample preparation is not required for analysis of petrochemicals. Result will be obtained after one minute.

Completeness

One instrument for any sample analysis of gasoline, oils, lubricating, diesel, crude oil and any other petrochemicals using one instrument. No additional calibration is needed.

Benefits

  • Low detection limits
  • High speed and accuracy
  • Intuitive interface
  • Autonomous operation as well as connected to a PC
  • Compact, doesn’t take much space on a desk or a counter
  • Ergonomic design with a LED lighting

X-ray fluorescence analysis surpasses the rest of analytical methods in terms of speed, accuracy, and simplicity. It’s a non-destructive method, in which analysis is targeted at the spot of interest. The diameter of an analytical spot can be easily changed.
