Analysis of S and CI in Waste Oil Using an Ag-anode X-ray Tube
Application Note Oct 01, 2018
This application note demonstrates that the Epsilon 4 is capable of analyzing sulfur and chlorine in waste oil.
Waste oil with high chlorine concentrations is considered to be hazardous and must be treated differently than other waste oils. A common problem with the analysis of chlorine by EDXRF is the line overlap with sulfur due to the often high concentrations of sulfur in waste oils. The Epsilon 4 is equipped with a new high resolution SDD detector, which improves the separation of S Kα, S Kβ and Cl Kα peaks.
