Petra 4294 Autosampler offers a more efficient workflow with sample tracking and continuous sample loading. Users can eliminate data errors and add urgent samples to the queue as needed. The 8-position sample slide offers continuous loading, allowing you to add urgent samples to the queue even during analysis.
The Autosampler Upgrade Kit can be added to any Petra Series analyzer. Users have the option to use X-ID Sample Cups (QR-coded) or standard XRF cups.
Sulfur Analyzer PETRA MAX
Petra MAX delivers a sulfur LOD as low as 5.7 ppm with rapid monitoring of critical elements like Ni, V, and Fe at sub-ppm levels. Method Compliance ASTM D4292, D8252, ISO 8754 & IP 336
Petra is powered by High Definition X-ray Fluorescence (HDXRF®) technology: an elemental analysis technique offering significantly enhanced detection performance over traditional XRF technology. This technique applies state-of-the-art monochromating and focusing optics, enabling dramatically higher signal-to-background ratio compared to traditional polychromatic X-ray Fluorescence.
The blending of crude oils from different sources has become more commonplace within the industry to meet specifications for the classification of sweet crude oil. The introduction of new crudes brings new challenges, like higher concentrations of metals such as nickel (Ni), vanadium (V), and iron (Fe). Ni and V are known to rapidly deactivate process catalysts in the catalytic cracker (FCC) and hydrotreaters. In response, many refiners have incorporated Ni and V analysis into their routine crude assay, and pipelines have set specifications for Ni and V in their common stream sweet crude. Fe is introduced into crude oil from corrosion byproducts during transportation and can lead to pump and exchanger fouling, and off-specification coke. The Petra MAX to demonstrate the advanced precision achievable with HDXRF® technology.
