Portable XRF Analyser: Meeting new Sulphur limits for marine fuel oil

Portable XRF Analyser: Meeting new Sulphur limits for marine fuel oil

From January 2020 the maximum allowable Sulphur content of marine fuels is changing: for all areas outside the existing Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECAs) the limit will be reduced from the current level of 3.50% m/m to just 0.50% m/m. The XRF Analyser combines simplicity with accuracy as a result of its ability to spot check the Sulphur content of fuel oil, as well as other elements, such as Nickel and Vanadium.
