LABORATORY TOTAL SULPHUR ANALYSER
FOR GASEOUS AND LIQUID SAMPLES
The sample is precisely metered in a continuous flowing stream of hydrogen. Both sample and hydrogen are heated together in a furnace at a temperature between 650°C and 1200°C (depending on the sample composition) where hydrogasification and catalytic hydrogenation transform sulphur compounds into H2S and reaction gas product.
For heavy or unsaturated hydrocarbons, the furnace includes a propriety catalytic element to achieve 100% conversion and prevents the reaction tube from clogging, fouling, and carbon build-up.
The resulting H2S is monitored by the interference-free, lead acetate tape, detection technology coupled with microprocessor-based electronics to provide fast and accurate measurement of total sulfur in liquid, gaseous, and LPG laboratory applications.
The analyser is sensitive to extremely low total sulphur concentrations (less than 10 PPB) as well as to high concentrations (up to 2000 PPM).
Motorized syringe drive Model for liquid/gas sample injection.
Patented catalytic element for heavy or unsaturated hydrocarbon applications.
