S2 PUMA Performs Elemental Analysis Reliably,
Precisely, and Quickly
The range of uses for XRF in elemental analysis in the
field of petrochemicals is very broad, ranging through
the entire product life cycle of lubricants and fuels. For
example, sulfur can be found in crude oil in amounts of up
to five mass percent and above, but in lubricating oils only
variable proportions ranging from the upper ppm range to
percent are permitted, and in automobile fuels only a few
ppm. In order to quickly and reliably determine the quality
and quantity of the constituents in such blends, Bruker
developed the S2 PUMA: An energy-dispersive X-ray
spectrometer (EDXRF) in the form of an easy-to-operate,
bench-top device, which can be ideally configured for
the kind of analyses that are typical in the petrochemical
industry. Thanks to its user-friendly TouchControl™ with
intuitive user interface, users without any special training
can perform precise analysis.
