The XPLORER-NS is the smallest Total Nitrogen (TN) and Total Sulfur (TS) analyzer available in today’s market. This advanced elemental combustion analyzer offers fast, accurate and precise analysis of liquid, LPG, gas and solid samples. It is designed to offer standardized and customized solutions to match current as well as future analytical needs, ranging from low ppb to high ppm applications.

The XPLORER-NS measures Nitrogen and Sulfur simultaneously. Valuable information about a sample that contains both elements is created during a single run. With its low detection limit it is possible to measure concentrations at ppb level. Detection through Chemiluminescence and UV-Fluorescence with sample combustion at high temperature are the reference methods for the determination of Total Nitrogen and Total Sulfur. Separate analysis of Total Nitrogen or Total Sulfur can be done done with the XPLORER-N or XPLORER-S.

Common Applications:
• Chemicals (e.g. Plastics, Aromatics, Olefins and Parafines)
• Refinery Products (e.g. Crude Oil, Naphta, Lubricants, Gasoline, Diesel Fuel, Fuel Oil)
• LPG and Gases (e.g. Pentane, Butane, Propane, Propylene)
