Monday, November 5, 2001

Kleve, November 5, 2001. In the field of petroleum based products SPECTRO is uniquely positioned to offer an extensive range of instrumentation for the on-line and off-line analysis of a wide selection of chemical elements including; magnesium, sulfur, chlorine, vanadium, iron cobalt, nickel and even uranium.

This brochure details the multiple locations in and around the refining operation where SPECTRO instrumentation can be deployed to monitor or measure the process as a bench-top analyzer with batch sampling, top-of-the-line XRF analyzer for the laboratory analysis of Na to U, ICP spectrometer for ppb analysis of trace elements - including the Halogens - or an on-line system with continuous sampling & reporting.

Successful analysis applications include; crude oil, gasoline, reformulated gasoline, diesel, kerosene, naphtha, phenol, lubricating oils, residual oil, gas oils, waste oils, wear metals in oils, marine fuels, jet fuel, heating oils, additives and base stock.

The technologies employed by SPECTRO (XRF, XRT, ICP and E-CHEM) are discussed. Several XRF, E-CHEM and ICP methods are EPA and ASTM approved. The SPECTRO on-line process monitors are available for both high pressure and low-pressure applications and the measurement of sample streams with high temperatures (up to 392 F and 200 C) is possible.

SPECTRO Analytical Instruments designs, manufactures and markets, state of the art spectrometers and process control solutions for a wide range of customers and applications. Since its founding 22 years ago, SPECTRO has developed internationally into the industry innovator in Optical Emission and XRF spectroscopy with more than 16,000 instruments installed worldwide.
