Featuring advanced 3rd generation energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) technology,
the Rigaku NEX OL represents the next evolution of process elemental analysis for liquid
stream and fixed position web or coil applications. Designed to span from heavy industrial
through to food grade process gauging solutions, the NEX OL is configurable for use in
both classified and non-classified areas.
Analyze from aluminum (13Al) to uranium (92U)
To deliver superior analytical performance and reliability, the EDXRF measuring head assembly was derived from the established Rigaku NEX QC+ high resolution benchtop instrument. With this proven technology, the Rigaku NEX OL delivers rapid, non-destructive, multi-element analyses – from parts-per-million (ppm) levels to high weight percent (wt%) concentrations – for elements from aluminum (13Al) through uranium (92U). Equipped with a 50 kV X-ray tube and SDD detector – together with a standardized, optimized suite of tube filters – the Rigaku NEX OL is engineered to solve a broad range of process control applications.
Unique toolless flow cell design
For the elemental analysis of liquid streams, an analyzing head is mated to a unique toolless flow cell assembly incorporating the X-ray window . The X-ray window contains the liquid stream but is transparent to X-rays; it is typically a plastic film.
Coating thickness and composition
In addition to analyzing liquid streams, the Rigaku NEX OL is designed to service web and coil applications, with the ability to perform multi-element composition and/or coating thickness. Typically a head is mounted in a fixed position over a roller so that the head to surface distance is constant.
Features and benefits
Advanced X-ray Transmission / Absorption (XRT/XRA) Total Sulfur Gauge for Crude Oil, Marine Bunker Fuel
and Blending Operations
Rigaku's NEX XT is the next generation process gauge for high-level total sulfur measurement (0.02% to 6% S) of crude, bunker fuel, fuel oils, and other highly viscous hydrocarbons, including residuums.
On-Line total sulfur gauge
This versatile, compact and robust X-ray Transmission / Absorption (XRT / XRA) process gauge is specifically optimized for the total sulfur analysis needs of refineries, pipelines, blending operations, bunkering terminals and other storage facilities. Applications for the NEX XT include bunker fuel blending to meet MARPOL Annex VI sulfur restrictions, interface detection of different grade fuels delivered via pipelines, refinery feedstock blending and monitoring, and the quality monitoring of crude at remote collection and storage facilities.
Measure sulfur (S) from 200 ppm to 6 wt%
