S, Fe, Ni and V in residual oil per IP610/13

AppNote XRF1054: S, Fe, Ni and V in residual oil per IP610/13


Residual oil, which contains various elements such as S, Fe, Ni, V and others, is obtained after distilling crude oil and used for marine fuel or electric power plant fuel. When residual oil is burned, some elements can cause damage to marine engines and the environment. For example, sulfur is regarded to be the most harmful element causing air pollution, or metals like Ni, V and Fe are regarded as catalyst poison which blocks catalyst pour. XRF is a powerful tool for analyzing these elements in residual oil. Sample preparation is very simple and analysis results are obtained quickly. This application note demonstrates that ZSX Primus is compliant with IP610/13 for the analysis of S, Fe, Ni and V.
