Sulfur in diesel

AppNote 1135: the analysis of sulfur in diesel fuel as per ASTM D4294 is demonstrated.

Background

Sulfur will always be an important element in crude oils and fuels oils. Sulfur content is regulated in many products, and plays an important role in fuel quality and control of polluting emissions. Around the world regulations are limiting the amount of sulfur allowable in diesel fuels, kerosene, heating oils, etc. Jet fuels also rely on the sulfur content to ensure optimum fuel properties, in addition to emission concerns. Therefore, from characterizing, blending and refining crude oil to the production of various fuel oils, monitoring sulfur content will continue to be a very important measurement. To meet the needs of the industry, Rigaku offers NEX QC, a simple and versatile benchtop EDXRF analyzer for the analysis of sulfur and other elements in petroleum oils and fuels.
