Process Control

Rigaku offers process control instruments that perform online elemental analysis by EDXRF or X-ray transmission.

EDXRF technology is used for process elemental analysis for liquid stream and fixed position web or coil applications, spanning from heavy industrial through to food-grade process gauging solutions, providing rapid, non-destructive, multi-element analyses, from parts-per-million (ppm) levels to high weight percent (wt%) concentrations, for aluminum (Al) through uranium (U).

X-ray transmission technology represents the next evolution of process gauge for sulfur measurement (0.02% to 6% S) of crude, bunker fuel, fuel oils, and other highly viscous hydrocarbons, including residuums. Applications 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.
