New and Improved Technology
OI Analytical’s patented* Pulsed Flame Photometric Detector (PFPD) is the key to our success in detecting and measuring sulfur contaminants. Our Model 5383 PFPD has a linear, equimolar response enabling the unique capability to obtain simultaneous sulfur and hydrocarbon chromatograms from a single PFPD detector.
Sulfur in Stealth Mode
Sulfur compounds can be incredibly difficult to detect, causing significant problems if unnoticed. Take propylene, a co-product from steam cracking of ethylene, as an example. Carbonyl sulfide (COS) is a major contaminant in propylene feedstock and can destroy expensive catalyst beds used in polymer production and other processes if not removed.
