Improved light element analysis

Thermo Scientific Ultra Performance Packages are available for improved light element analysis. To achieve a higher level of performance, the packages combine a portable X-ray fluorescence (FPXRF) analyzer with a larger silicon drift detector (SDD), unique, field-portable sample preparation tools, and a helium (He) purge option. This combination of portable technologies is a breakthrough for determining light element concentrations in field-prepared mineral samples. This capability is increasingly important for oil and gas and industrial mineral exploration as light element analysis is used to infer mineralogy, which can help to determine physical properties of rocks, including permeability, porosity and oil/gas production capability. Portable instruments are an integral part of next-generation mining, putting the power and precision of a laboratory instrument in the hands of field personnel to accelerate discovery and contribute to increased profitability.

Field x-ray lab

Field personnel in oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) can now generate fast, reliable elemental composition information with the Thermo Scientific Niton Field X-ray Lab (FXL) equipped with the new Thermo Scientific z-CAL, a fit-for-purpose calibration and operation methodology for light elemental analysis.

X-ray analysis of fast sulphur in fuels

The Thermo Scientific ARL OPTIM’X Sulfur Analyzer, designed for use in the petroleum industry, delivers fast, accurate and reliable X-ray analysis. ARL OPTIM’X Sulfur Analyzer provides a comprehensive analytical package covering from ultra-low to high percent sulphur concentrations in a wide range of petro industry products. As environmental regulations become stricter, the demand for ultra-low sulphur analysis in fuels is on the increase. Regulatory authorities worldwide have set maximum limits for sulphur content in these products and as a result petroleum companies require fast and accurate means of analyzing low parts-per-million sulphur levels. In response to these heightened regulatory concerns and industry demand, the Thermo Scientific ARL OPTIM’X Sulfur Analyzer is a compact and reliable WDXRF platform configured with dedicated Multichromators for fast analysis and improved sensitivity.

Online calorimeters for accurate heating value measurement

The new Thermo Scientific Flo-Cal 6000 and 8000 online, high-speed calorimeters are designed to accurately measure the heating value of combustible gases for refineries and related facilities. Both models build on the field-proven reputation of the Flo-Cal line and Thermo Fisher Scientific’s process instruments portfolio, offering key features to improve efficiency, plant safety and cost control.

Six-run gas flow computer and remote telemetry unit

The next-generation Thermo Scientific AutoPILOT PRO is designed to scale from a simple, single run measurement application to six runs with full station control. This accurate, easy-to-use gas flow computer features full USB support and is simple to configure with no programming required, enabling your staff to focus on increasing productivity and profitability.

Mass spectrometer monitors contaminants

The TSQ Quantum is the only triple quadru-pole system that enables Highly Selective Reaction Monitoring (H-SRM) performance, which facilitates the quick and efficient analysis of complex samples. The Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks in Quebec used the system to perform realtime, mobile analysis of organic and inorganic environmental contaminants in the air, ground and water. Ministry personnel collaborated with Thermo Fisher and its strategic partner Phytronix Technologies, a Canadian company, to upgrade an obsolete mobile laboratory system. The TSQ Quantum was chosen because it met the ministry’s stringent requirements for limits of detection in the order of microgram per cubic meter, even in real time. Phytronix engineered a stabilization table to dampen motion so the TSQ Quantum can analyze samples while the bus is on the road. A dampening table was necessary because the mass spectrometer requires a stable environment during analysis.
