Elemental and trace analysis of catalysts, metals, detrimental elements and substances throughout the refining process is delivered by our X-ray fluorescence (XRF) solutions. XRF is a versatile and non-destructive method of analysis that has become established as vital to process and quality control applications. Malvern Panalytical also provides spray characterization instruments used to study fuel spray devices to enable for better, more efficient engines of the future, and particle size analyzers for assessing fuel filter efficiency.
Typical application include
- Accurate quantitative analysis of oils, fuels and biofuel products for compliance with standard test methods and international norms regulations such as ASTM, IP, ISO and others. An example is sulfur analysis according to ASTM D2622-10 or ISO 14596
- Accurate quantitative analysis of sulfur, aluminum, silicon, nickel vanadium and many other elements in products like fuels and used and unused lubrication oils
- Elemental analysis of scalings in pipes, reactors and catalyst beds for root cause problem analysis
- Evaluation of fuel/water separation efficiency in diesel engines according to ISO16332
- Droplet size testing in fuel sprays to enable for better, more efficient engines of the future
Malvern Panalytical systems cater for elemental analysis in many different oils, fuels, biofuels and blends and support easy compliance with international oil and fuel standard test methods like ASTM and ISO and aid in determining combustion efficiency of the engine to ensures meeting current fuel efficiency standards.
