Ensuring UOP 979 precision compliance: Best practices for chlorine in catalyst by XRF

Catalyst, even as a powdered sample, is inherently non-homogenous when analysed by X-ray fluorescence (XRF). This can lead to difficulties with UOP 979 precision compliance, if proper sample preparation techniques are not followed.

Join an XOS Applications Scientist to learn about catalyst sample preparation and measurement by X-ray fluorescence (XRF). Whether it is by Petra MAX or other XRF techniques, sample preparation is critical when measuring chlorine in catalyst samples by XRF. Unlike finished fuel products, catalyst is non-homogenous, and proper sample preparation will ensure better measurement precision and accuracy.

In this webinar, XOS will:

  • Review chlorine in catalyst sample preparation.
  • Analyse the data run on Petra MAX according to UOP 979.
  • Discuss best practices for sample preparation and measurement.
  • Explain how energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analysers, such as Petra MAX, may be suitable alternatives to wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) analysers.
