Bruker has launched the S2 POLAR, multi-element benchtop analyser based on polarised energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence (ED XRF). The S2 POLAR offers the same analytical precision for quality control in the petrochemical industry as typically achieved by more expensive wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence instruments. It analyses ultra-low sulfur content and achieves detection limits in the sub-ppm range for gasoline, kerosene and diesel. Its ability to measure multiple elements simultaneously, including chlorine for corrosion prevention and phosphorus against residue build-up, makes the S2 POLAR well suited for the analytical demands of refineries, as well as for the downstream supply chain of pipelines, oil terminals and petrol stations.
The S2 POLAR s compliant with all relevant ASTM, DIN, IP, JIS and ISO norms. Bruker’s multilingual TouchControl™ interface and factory calibrated application packages for the ASTM norms D7220, D4294, D6481 and D7751 ensure “plug-and-play” operation. SampleCare™ component protection supports high instrument uptime and robustness.
