Analysis of ULSD

AppNote XRF2095: Analysis of ULSD

 

Background

 

Regulations around the world have limited the amount of sulfur in various fuels oils. In some regions, sulfur in diesel is limited to 10 - 15 ppm, while other areas of the world are working to bring sulfur levels down to 50 ppm and lower. Aside from automobile, truck, and some bunker fuels, ULSD is also mandated for use as a starter fuel or for backup electricity generation in coal-fired power plants and nuclear power plants in some regions. A fast, reliable method of measuring and monitoring sulfur concentration throughout the petroleum industry is vital.
