This sheet shows that the EDX9000E-a high performance bench top energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer- is fully capable of analyzing sulfur and heavy meals in oil from ppm level to percentage. ASTM4294 describe the method to measure the sulfur in oil by EDXRF. This application note demonstrates the way to use EDX9000E according to the ASTM4294- Typically 17ppm to 5% sulfur analysis. The test performance of metals in lubricants are also demonstrated to prove that the EDX9000E is qualified for this application.
EDX-9000E is also widely used for analyzing the metals in lubricants, which complied with the standard as below:
