Refinery corrosion control by chlorine determination in crude oils

Reducing downtime of the refining operation, for instance by corrosion prevention, improves your margins significantly. About one third of maintenance downtime can be linked to corrosion. Chlorine content in crude oil and process streams is responsible for an important part of the corrosion.
X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is widely used for the analysis of sulfur in oil. The simultaneous determination of very low chlorine concentrations poses an analytical challenge due to the proximity of both elements in the periodic table of elements.
