Clora M-Series Bench-Top Analyzer
Clora M-Series Bench-Top Brochure
The chloride bench-top analyzer is a breakthrough analytical solution for the determination of chlorides in liquid hydrocarbon samples such as aromatics, distillates and heavy fuels, as well as aqueous solutions. Compliant with ASTM D 7536 Standard Test Method for chlorine in aromatics, the Clora analyzer uses the same Monochromatic WD XRF analytical technique as the widely accepted line of SINDIE analyzers, Clora provides a limit of detection of 0.15ppm and a dynamic range up to 3000 ppm. This direct measurement technique does not require gasses or involve high temperature processes which results in unprecedented ease-of-use and minimum maintenance requirements.
Precise determination of chlorides is critical during refining processes. Chlorides may poison expensive catalysts and may lead to corrosion in overhead or reactor effluent systems. Alternative methods, such as microcoulometry and ion chromatography, for determination of chlorides at levels below 1 ppm involve cumbersome sample preparation and/or combustion processes. This ultimately leads to extended operator involvement, longer measurement times, increased consumables and complexity and increased maintenance. Clora enables the user to quantify chloride concentration below 0.5 ppm levels, without the difficulties of consumable gasses, or elevated temperature processes.
