NAPHTHA (POLYMERS)

Hitachi XRF analysers are ideal for rapid quality control and ensuring legislation is met in the production of naphtha based polymers and fibres.

X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) can ensure your product meets standards and specifications by helping you keep your processes under control. XRF analysis can be carried out on samples that are in a block or granular form, meaning you can check materials when they arrive at your facility and test the final product before shipping.

WE HELP YOU CHECK PRODUCTS FOR COMPLIANCE WITH :

Halogen-free regulation

Packaging Directive

RoHS

ELV

AUTOMOTIVE FUEL INCLUDING BIOFUEL

Hitachi XRF analysers help you meet stringent sulfur standards for automotive fuel, including biofuel blends, and with the analysis and grading of waste cooking oil.

Used cooking oil is an important feedstock for automotive biofuel. But before it enters the waste oil refinery, chlorine and sulfur levels must be measured. Our XRF analysers help you make these measurements accurately and rapidly. XRF is also used to check sulfur levels throughout the refinery process, including the final blend.

AVIATION FUEL

Hitachi XRF analysers make it easy to measure sulfur levels in aviation fuel.

Aviation fuel that includes biofuel must meet the industry standard ASTM D1655 and D7566 (standard specifications for aviation turbine fuel).  These set out the limits for a variety of fuel properties, including sulfur content. Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence is an approved method for sulfur determination as described in the test method ASTM D4294.

DIESEL FUEL FOR HEAVY VEHICLES AND MACHINERY

Fast and accurate measurement of sulfur levels during the refining of diesel fuel with Hitachi’s XRF equipment helps you meet industry-wide standards.

Regulations around diesel fuel for heavy vehicles and machinery are strict and new regulations on biofuels are affecting fuel providers. Here we give an overview of the specifications, what’s changing, and which of our analysers you need to choose to accurately detect the very low sulfur limits in diesel for commercial vehicles and machinery.

LUBRICATING OIL

Hitachi’s XRF equipment brings easy quality control to the production and blending of lubricating oil.

Manufacturers and blenders of lubricating oils have stringent product specifications to meet, and e.g test for viscosity, specific gravity and flash point of the final product. Introducing elemental analysis during the blending process helps to ensure consistent quality.

HEAVY FUEL OIL

Hitachi’s XRF analysers give you the accuracy you need to ensure that regulated sulfur limits are met, both now and as limits reduce further.

With more stringent IMO regulations coming into force, it’s essential for the shipping industry to verify their fuel’s sulfur levels to avoid heavy fines. This test is widely done with XRF. We have 40 years’ experience in providing XRF equipment to the oil testing industry. This means our analysers will help ensure you are complying to strict marine fuel standards.

Ship owners looking to comply with the incoming IMO global sulfur cap of 0.5% for marine fuels should be starting to prepare today. We’ve looked at the different options to achieve compliance and avoid fines to make it easy.

BITUMEN (ASPHALT)

Hitachi’s XRF analysers bring rapid quality control to the manufacturing of products using asphalt as a raw material, including roofing shingles.

The XRF technique can detect a large range of metals and non-metals, including copper, bromine, and zinc in Asphalt The test itself is very accurate and doesn’t affect the sample at all, meaning you can even test a product you intend to ship to a customer.

CRUDE OIL

Control desalination processing and sulfur removal of crude oil with Hitachi’s XRF equipment. It can also detect low levels of metal impurities with high accuracy.

When crude oil arrives at a refinery it needs a lot of processing before it’s suitable for cracking into lighter fractions. Sulfur has to be extracted to meet ultra-low sulfur legislation for most of the fuel grades, and desalination is a crucial process as chlorine within salts is corrosive to refinery equipment.
