Ecublens, Switzerland, 2009/10/14 - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announces the introduction of a new analytical package designed for use in the petroleum industry which delivers fast, accurate and reliable X-ray analysis (NYSE: TMO).
The Thermo Scientific ARL OPTIM'X Sulfur Analyzer provides a comprehensive analytical package covering from ultra-low to high percent sulfur concentrations in a wide range of petro industry products.
As environmental regulations become stricter, the demand for ultra-low sulfur analysis in fuels is on the increase. Regulatory authorities worldwide have set maximum limits for sulfur content in these products and as a result petroleum companies require fast and accurate means of analyzing low parts-per-million sulfur levels. In response to these heightened regulatory concerns and industry demand, the Thermo Scientific ARL OPTIM'X Sulfur Analyzer is a compact and reliable WDXRF platform configured with dedicated Multichromators for fast analysis and improved sensitivity.
The new ARL OPTIM'X Sulfur Analyzer package is a turn-key solution which is pre-configured to meet the specific sulfur analytical testing requirements of the petroleum industry in light and heavy fuels and oils. Thanks to the innovative Ultra Closely Coupled Optics (UCCOTM), the equivalent of a 200W analytical performance is generated from 50W X-ray power. Temperature regulation of both the spectrometer and the crystals ensure outstanding stability and repeatability to comply with ASTM and ISO regulations. The compact instrument offers consistent performance without the need for water cooling and powerful and user-friendly Thermo Scientific OXSAS software supports the spectrometer operation and data handling.
Quick and easy to install, the regulatory compliant package can be carefully calibrated in the factory using a series of reference samples, or optimized on-site using customers’ own standard samples to provide an accurate and reliable solution.
