Contributing to Society through Science and Technology Shimadzu is one of the leading manufacturers of analytical instrumentation and provides a broad range of analytical solutions for research and development, quality control and on-line monitoring. Ever since its foundation in 1875 Shimadzu is in the service of science, ensuring precise, reliable diagnoses and analyses in chemistry, pharmaceutical/health care, food or environmental control. The product range cover liquid and gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, elemental and molecular spectroscopy, sum parameters (TOC) and physical testing. Based on this techniques Shimadzu provides also specific analysers, for example System GC, tailored to fulfil the requirements of international standards for Natural Gas, Refinery Gas, Liquefied Petroleum Gas, moisture, sulphur traces and oxygenate analysis.
On PEFTEC Shimadzu exhibits the newly developed Nexis SCD-2030 SCD-2030 sulfur chemiluminescence detector. With this product, Shimadzu serves a growing request for easy operation and maintenance as well as high stability even during long term operation for high selective and sensitive sulfur detection systems.
The sulfur in fossil fuels not only causes air pollution, but also interferes with catalysts during chemical reactions. Petrochemical companies are making efforts to reduce the sulfur content of fuels and have developed low sulfur gasolines containing only several tens of ppb or less. To accurately measure trace amounts of sulfur in fuel, a high sensitivity SCD detector is essential. Against this background, global sales of SCD detectors are expected to increase steadily in the future, and demand is growing for instruments that excel in highly sensitive detection.
