Sulfur analysis requirements

Requests for analysis of sulfur in fuels and oils are increasing as environmental regulations worldwide continue to tighten. Current fuel sulfur standards in some countries already reach as low as 10 ppm, with other countries following. Ensuring 10 ppm or less sulfur at the filling station means producing gasoline or diesel at even lower levels, around 4 ppm.

The compact power of the ARL OPTIM’X Sulfur Analyzer attains these low levels of quantification and beyond with excellent precision.
