Application Note: Analysis of S and CI in Waste Oil Using an Ag-Anode X-ray Tube
5 October 2018

Waste oil with high chlorine concentrations is considered to be hazardous and must be treated differently to other waste oils. A common problem with the analysis of chlorine by EDXRF is the line overlap with sulfur, due to the often-high concentrations of sulfur in waste oils. The Epsilon 4 is equipped with a new high-resolution SDD detector, which improves the separation of S Kα, S Kβ and Cl Kα peaks.
