Silicon Analyzer

sp10From gasoline to ethanol and toluene, the Signal benchtop analyzer delivers unprecedented precision and accuracy in quantitative analysis of silicon in petroleum. The analyzer is based on XOS’s MWDXRF technology platform ensuring a robust analysis solution for demanding petroleum and industrial environments.

Silicon (Si) contamination continues to impact fuel quality, resulting in costly engine failures and catalyst fouling. ASTM test method D7757 compliant, the Signal uses proven, state-of-the-art technology to provide exceptional Si analysis.

  • Know the contamination sources and develop working solutions.
  • Understand the impacts of Si contamination on your business.
  • Determine your Si baseline for future specifications set by ASTM or the end user.
