SPECTRO Analytical Instruments’ SPECTROCUBE Petrochem ED-XRF benchtop spectrometer is designed for the analysis of fuel and lube oil. The SPECTROCUBE Petrochem is designed to meet all relevant refining and petrochemical analysis standards. Its sulfur content testing of fuel oils complies with test methods including ISO 13032, ASTM D7220, ASTM D4294, ISO 20847, and ISO 8754. It enables a precise analysis of lube oil per ASTM D7751. SPECTROCUBE Petrochem enables a smooth workflow, even for minimally trained users: samples are analysed in three steps, with the intuitive software presenting the relevant information on a single screen. The instrument has a high-resolution silicon drift detector and is optimised for testing of element concentrations in the range from sodium to uranium. Its lube oil method, for instance, covers 24 elements.
