Hitachi markets new hand-held fuel sulphur analyser

23 May 2018

Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation subsidiary Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Corporation Tuesday introduced a hand-held solution which can be used to measure the level of sulphur present in bunker fuels.

The X-MET8000 Optimum handheld XRF (X-ray Fluorescence) analyser is factory-calibrated with a sulphur range of 0% to 5%, and calibrated to ASTM, D4294, IP336 and ISO8754.

It is able to provide real-time data transfer with the firm’s IOS and Android apps, and cloud service, and also has an embedded GPS to pinpoint where the analysis was performed to provide compliance reporting.

“Ensuring compliance with the 2020 global sulphur cap regulation is a challenge for many organisations and for the industry,” said Christelle Petiot, Hitachi Product Business Development Manager.

“On-board testing is the most effective method to establish compliance. We’ve got a long history working with testing houses in ports and laboratories.

“The launch of our X-MET8000 Optimum solution compliments our LAB-X benchtop analyser, which has been used over the last 20 years to test sulphur in fuel.”
