Total Chloride Analyzer (for Palm Oil & Petroleum.)

Total Chloride Analysis - The Absolute Reference Method.

 Oxidative Combustion Microcoulometry is the benchmark technique to which popular test methods such as the ASTM D4929, ASTM D5808, ASTM D7457, and UOP 779 refer. Table 1* demonstrates the capabilities of TE Instruments’ XPLORER-TX while analyzing samples according to these international test methods Reference Method:


 Microcoulometric detection technique has numerous benefits:

  • Microcoulometry is an absolute detection technique. All (organic) chloride components are converted to hydrochloric acid (HCl). The XPLORER-TX achieves a 100% recovery. Therefore, calibration of the XPLORER-TX can be done, but is not even necessary.
  • Microcoulometric titration can be applied to a much wider range of sample types, including liquids, solids, gas and LPG.
  • Microcoulometry is not affected by the matrix and inhomogeneity of the sample. This can be seen as a major issue for XRF technique.



Elemental Combustion-based Analyzer for Total Chloride analysis  by Microcoulometry

The XPLORER TX/TS is a microcoulometric Total Chloride combustion-based  analyzer that blends into every laboratory environment, whether it is for R&D, chemical or petrochemical applications. Solid, liquid, gas and LPG samples, this robust Elemental Combustion Analyzer handles them all. Determination of Chloride (and Sulfur concentrations )according to Microcoulometry is an absolute technique and calibrating the analyzer is not a requirement. With its low detection limit it is possible to measure concentrations at ppb level.

The XPLORER-TX (MCT) and the XPLORER-TS (MCT) are also available as seperate models.

Common Applications:
• Chemicals (e.g. Plastics, Aromatics, Olefins and Parafines)
• Refinery Products (e.g. Crude Oil, Naphta, Lubricants, Gasoline, Diesel Fuel, Fuel Oil)
• Biofuels (e.g. • Refinery Products (e.g. Waste Based Fuel Feedstocks, UCO, UCOME, BioDiesel, BioEthanol)
• LPG and Gases (e.g. Pentane, Butane, Propane, Propylene)
• Oils and Fats (e.g. Vegetable Oil, Palm Oil, Animal Fats)
