Hitachi High-Technologies GLOBAL


Helping you achieve bunker fuel sulfur compliance

In 2020, the IMO (International Maritime Organisation) will enforce a new global sulfur limit of 0.5% for bunker fuel oil. As ship owners and port control authorities, you can make sure you meet the current and new global sulphur limits with our analysers.

Our portable and benchtop XRF (X-ray Fluorescence) analysers conform to international standard test methods (e.g. ASTM D4294), delivering results you can trust. They can be used to test bunker fuel oil:

  • On site, before it’s loaded
  • On board a vessel
  • In the laboratory

So you can ensure you are compliant no matter where you’re testing.

HANDHELD XRF

Trusted by thousands of businesses around the world, the X-MET8000 handheld analyser weights 1.5kg to make it easier to take it from site to site and ship to ship. It has an embedded GPS to pinpoint where analysis is performed.
