SPECTROCUBE Petrochemical Analysis

Application Brief

Combined Application for the Analysis of 24 Elements in Various Types of Petrochemical Products Using the SPECTROCUBE

Five key applications for the elemental analysis of petrochemical products are discussed in this report: From blending control of fresh lubricants and the control of additive packages to used oil analysis, sulfur in crude oil distillates as well as sulfur and other trace elements in crude oil and heavy fuel oil along with distillate burner fuels derived from waste mineral oils.

The new SPECTROCUBE was used for the analysis, and was set up with one single calibration to handle all of the petrochemical applications reported in this paper. The report shows that the SPECTROCUBE - thanks to its optimized excitation and detection limits - achieves a sensitivity that’s exceptional among ED-XRF methodologies. It allows an accurate trace element analysis for all other related applications: used oil analysis, heavy fuel oil analysis, recycled fuel analysis and oil analysis.
