The report details the analysis of sulfur with complete information regarding sample preparation, method calibration and repeatability.
Sulfur is a critical element in the petroleum refinery process and in its final products. Since sulfur in petroleum-based fuels contributes to atmospheric pollution, its concentration, especially in automobile fuels, is strictly controlled. For this method, measurements were performed on the Supermini200 using a PET analyzing crystal, included in the standard crystals, with the X-ray tube operating at 50 kV and 4.0 mA. The counting time for low sulfur concentration was 300 seconds for peak and 150 seconds for background; for high sulfur concentration, 50 seconds and 25 seconds. Supermini200 with minimal site requirements.
