ZSXmini benchtop WDXRF spectrometer for oil and gas

ZSXmini benchtop WDXRF spectrometer for oil and gas

The Woodlands, TX — March 5, 2004. The Rigaku ZSXmini is the benchtop spectrometer for oil and gasoline analysis in the petroleum industry. The smaller footprint makes this spectrometer ideal for mobile and on-site labs, and as a back-up unit for existing WDXRF instrumentation. This compact size, coupled with no external cooling, plug and play capabilities for F9 - U92, and affordable pricing, makes the ZSXmini perfect for your needs.

The petroleum industry relies on a variety of techniques utilizing X-ray fluorescence technology. With ever increasing regulations to protect the environment, it has become more important to make sure each analysis is performed properly and following all specified guidelines. ASTM 2622 is just one example of where the ZSXmini complies with industry regulations. The need for on-site analysis on the downstream side, whether it is from offshore or onshore drilling rigs, can be easily met with the ZSXmini. Sludges, muds, waste waters, and drill cuttings can all be quickly analyzed.
