Background
ASTM D5059-14 is a standard test method for lead in gasoline by X-ray spectroscopy.

Rigaku NEX CG is demonstrated for the determination of the total lead content of gasoline within the following concentration ranges:

  • 0.010 to 5.0 g Pb/US gal
  • 0.012 to 6.0 g Pb/UK gal
  • 0.0026 to 1.32 g Pb/L

ASTM methods A and B cover the range of 0.10 to 5.0 g Pb/US gal. Test method C covers the range of 0.010 to 0.50 g Pb/US gal.

NEX CGRigaku NEX CG delivers rapid qualitative and quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements in a wide variety of sample types — with minimal standards. Unlike conventional EDXRF analyzers, the NEX CG was engineered with a unique close-coupled Cartesian Geometry (CG) optical kernel that dramatically increases signal-to-noise.
