Bruker has launched the S2 POLAR, a new multi-element benchtop analyzer based on polarized energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF). The S2 POLAR offers the same excellent analytical precision for quality control in the petrochemical industry that is typically only achieved by more expensive wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) instruments.

The S2 POLAR analyzes ultra-low sulfur (ULS) content and achieves detection limits in the sub-ppm range for gasoline, kerosene and diesel. Its performance exceeds various international norms and regulations, making the S2 POLAR also suitable for future requirements. With its capability to measure multiple elements simultaneously, including chlorine for corrosion prevention and phosphorus against residue build-up, the S2 POLAR is well suited for the analytical demands of refineries, as well as for the downstream supply chain of pipelines, oil terminals and petrol stations. Remarkably, the S2 POLAR combines the performance of several single-element analyzers in a single powerful benchtop instrument.

Oil manufacturers and oil blenders can also benefit from the high precision of the S2 POLAR. Here, the measurement of additives in lubricating oils, e.g. magnesium, calcium, zinc and molybdenum, is important for the efficient use of additives and the minimization of production costs.

The S2 POLAR delivers compliant analysis for all relevant ASTM, DIN, IP, JIS and ISO norms. Bruker's multilingual TouchControl interface and factory calibrated application packages for the ASTM norms D7220, D4294, D6481 and D7751 ensure ‘plug-and-play’ operation. Its SampleCare component protection supports high instrument uptime and robustness.

"The performance for multi-element analysis of virtually all petrochemical products in a compact benchtop instrument makes the S2 POLAR the perfect choice for refineries, petrochemical producers and oil manufacturers," said Frank Portala, EDXRF product manager at Bruker. "Its excellent precision enables the analysis of ULS fuels, and quality control of additives in oils. With the S2 POLAR, Bruker further extends its strong commitment to XRF applications in the petrochemical industry."
