Thermo Scientific’s new SOLA iQ online sulfur analyser helps technicians, engineers and managers in the oil and gas industry measure total sulfur content of liquid or gas phase samples without requiring time-consuming laboratory analysis.
The new analyser offers an updated modular design that eases routine maintenance and features measurement ranges from 2 ppm to 100% and limits of detection as low as 25 ppb. Other new features come from the iQ Series environmental monitoring platform, introduced in August 2017, including a colour touchscreen interface and remote connectivity that allows users to pair with personal devices.
Additional benefits and features of the online sulfur analyser include:
- A pulsed ultraviolet (UV) fluorescence detector, designed to deliver higher performance than continuous UV technology.
- Use of air rather than pure oxygen for sample combustion, designed to minimise safety risks.
- Thermo Scientific AutoCONFIG software, which provides users with highly customisable tools and parameters for data acquisition, analysis and control.
The SOLA iQ provides an accurate measurement of total sulfur in a range of liquid and vapour fluids, correlating to ASTM Method D5453, ISO Method 20846, ASTM Method D6313 and ASTM Method D2622.
"Our customers demand online instruments that feature advanced remote diagnostic capabilities, higher instrument uptime and continuous data availability," said Ben Zhou, vice president and general manager, environmental and process monitoring, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "The SOLA iQ analyser is designed to meet those objectives by integrating the most innovative technology from multiple Thermo Scientific product platforms to provide greater confidence that they are meeting their process control and environmental requirements."
