Petra MAX

 

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.

Petra MAX delivers D4294 sulfur analysis in addition to 12 elements from P to Zn, for rapid monitoring of critical elements like Ca, Fe, K, Ni, and V at sub-ppm levels. Petra MAX offers advanced precision with HDXRF, advanced reliability, and advanced software and data management. Petroleum laboratories depend on reliable, robust analytical solutions for their fast-paced environment. Petra MAX was designed to meet these needs with an innovative sample introduction system that directs accidental spills to a drip tray and away from valuable components.

Petra MAX complies with ASTM D4294 and ISO 8754 methods for sulfur analysis of hydrocarbons like crude oil, diesel, gasoline, jet fuel, and lubricants.
