Total Sulfur Analysis in Automotive Fuels with NEXIS eQP According to ASTM D5453 and ISO 20846
The analysis of Total Sulfur in both light hydrocarbon and automotive fuels samples conducted by UV Florescence are routinely used by laboratories around the globe. However, these laboratories face challenges regarding aging instrument performance for accuracy, speed and larger instrument size taking up too much bench space. These challenges result in reduced lab productivity. Today’s laboratories demand simplicity and ease-of-operation from their Total Sulfur analyzers when testing automotive fuels. They require a high grade of reliability, full method compliance and accurate and consistent sulfur data. Ideally this can be accomplished in a smaller more compact instrument that saves bench space and provides reliable day-to-day operation.
This Application Note shows the performance of the NEXIS eQP model Total Sulfur Analyzer for a set of gasoline and diesel fuel samples in compliance to ASTM D5453, ISO 20846 methods and the TIER 3 program.
EST Analytical has been helping labs achieve their analytical goals for over 30 years. Our vision is to engineer reliable laboratory instruments that enable partners to make the world a better place.
To help labs excel we offer Application Notes across our entire product line. They are a resource that explains the technology, performance, and abilities of our products as used against certain methodologies and or applications.
Whether your needs center around a USEPA method, an ASTM Standard, or a sample matrix-based outcome EST has you covered. If you don’t see the technical direction you need, simply contact us. We also offer sample analysis in our onsite Applications Lab.
