X-Ray Transmittance

In x-ray transmission (XRT), a sample is irradiated with high-energy x-rays, which are absorbed by sulfur atoms. Measuring the x-rays that pass through the sample provides a measurement of sulfur concentration.

AMETEK Process Instruments offers a dedicated XRT solution for the analysis of sulfur in on-line monitoring applications. This fulfils a key role in refining, terminal operations and marine fuel analysis applications.

    682T-HP Sulfur Analyzer

    An x-ray transmission-based analyzer designed for the on-line analysis of sulfur in highly viscous hydrocarbons. This system is ideal for processes where sample pressures vary and in situations where fouling of flowcell windows with paraffin or similar substances can occur.
