Regulatory agencies around the world have been implementing increasingly stricter fuel emissions guidelines over the past decades to limit air pollution. Regulations such as the American Tier III, European Euro 6 or the Indian Bharat VI set quantitative limits on the permissible number of specific pollutants that can be released during combustion.
Sulfur and nitrogen are both controlled under these regulations due to the health and environmental impact of their oxides: Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen Oxide (NO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), commonly referred to as NOx.
In order to measure sulfur and nitrogen content in fuels, chemicals and petrochemicals, ATOM Instrument designed the XT Series-2000 laboratory analyzer for both total sulfur (TS) and total nitrogen (TN) measurements. The XT-2000 utilizes patented Excimer UV Fluorescence (EUVF) Technology for TS measurement and proprietary Chemiluminescence (CL) technology for TN measurement offering exceptional sensitivity that does not require a vacuum pump minimizing maintenance requirements and improving analytical stability.
