Application Note: Analysis of Sulfur and Chlorine in Oil Using EDXRF
15 May 2013

Monitoring the sulfur and chlorine content is important in various oils and oil products. In crude oils, chlorine may be present through natural processes or possible adulteration. Left unmeasured, chlorine may bias the sulfur measurement during crude oil blending or cause damage in the refining process. In this application note the analysis of sulfur and chlorine in oil is demonstrated. The results show that the NEX QC offers an effective, simple and fast means of analysis for the measurements of crude oil, cutting fluids, used oils and other similar oils.
