FRANKLIN, Mass. -- The new Thermo Scientific SOLA iQ online sulfur analyzer helps technicians, engineers and managers in the oil and gas industry measure total sulfur content of liquid or gas phase samples without requiring time-consuming lab analysis.
Advanced features of the new SOLA iQ analyzer build upon previous instruments in the Thermo Scientific SOLA product line. The new analyzer offers an updated modular design that eases routine maintenance and features measurement ranges from 2ppm to 100 percent and limits of detection as low as 25ppb.
Other new features come from the Thermo Scientific iQ Series environmental monitoring platform, introduced in August 2017, including a color touchscreen interface and remote connectivity that allows users to pair with personal devices.
'Our customers demand online instruments that feature advanced remote diagnostic capabilities, higher instrument uptime and continuous data availability,' said Ben Zhou, vice president and general manager, environmental and process monitoring, Thermo Fisher Scientific. 'The SOLA iQ analyzer is designed to meet those objectives by integrating the most innovative technology from multiple Thermo Scientific product platforms to provide greater confidence that they are meeting their process control and environmental requirements.'
Additional benefits and features of the Thermo Scientific SOLA iQ online sulfur analyzer include:
- A pulsed ultraviolet (UV) fluorescence detector, designed to deliver higher performance than continuous UV technology;
- Use of air rather than pure oxygen for sample combustion, designed to minimize safety risks; and
- Thermo Scientific AutoCONFIG software, which provides users with highly customizable tools and parameters for data acquisition, analysis and control.
The SOLA iQ provides an accurate measurement of total sulfur in a range of liquid and vapor fluids, correlating to ASTM Method D5453, ISO Method 20846, ASTM Method D6313 and ASTM Method D2622.
