Singapore, Australia authorities acquire hand-held sulphur analysers

10 Jul 2019

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority have each acquired a hand-held X-MET8000 sulphur analyser from Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Corporation in preparation for IMO 2020 enforcement.

The X-MET8000 handheld XRF analyser complies with ISO8754, ASTM D4294 and IP336 sulphur test methods, and offers laboratory-quality testing results onboard in less than 60-seconds, says Hitachi.

It uses the same technology found in the company’s benchtop XRF instruments that are used globally for fuels/oils testing primarily in onshore labs and comes with an embedded GPS to pinpoint exactly where analysis is performed.

“With less than six months remaining until the new regulations take effect, if organisations such as port authorities, shipping companies, marine surveyors and bunker fuel suppliers do not have an onboard testing solution yet, now is the time to take action,” said Adrian Smith, Deputy Sales and Service Director.

“Our fully portable solution accurately measures the sulphur content of fuel rapidly, backed by our expertise and many years of experience working with the petrochemical industry.

“With an X-MET 8000 you’ll get an analyser that’s trusted by thousands of businesses around the world, including the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and Australian Maritime Safety Authority who we are very excited to be working with to help them enforce compliance of the IMO 2020 regulation requirements.”
