Monitoring the sulfur and chlorine content is important in crude. In crude oil, chlorine may be present through natural processes or possible adulteration. If unmeasured or not corrected for, chlorine may bias the sulfur measurement or potentially cause corrosion damage in blending operation, in pipelines or during the refining process. The industry requires a fast, simple means of screening and monitoring the chlorine content of crude at the well site, along pipelines, during blending and other pre-refining checks. In these cases and others, Applied Rigaku Technologies meets the challenge of monitoring and measuring the sulfur and chlorine content of oils with the use of benchtop EDXRF instrumentation. The Rigaku NEX CG using indirect excitation and polarizations brings the industry a simple means to measure sulfur and chlorine simultaneously while delivering the lowest chlorine detection limits by EDXRF.
