New XFR system to detect sulphur in diesel fuels

Canadian group Eurocontrol has announced that its subsidiary Xenemetrics has introduced an onboard X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analysis system.

The XRF system will allow vessels to detect sulphur in diesel fuels, collecting data on these levels for management and analysis by the vessel operator.

In addition to measuring sulphur oxides in diesel fuel, Petro-Marine XRF can also monitor wear metals in engine lubricating oil, spot Cat Fines (compounds of silicon and aluminium) in fuel, and detect fraudulent mixing of bunker fuels.

The system is equipped with GPRS / Wi-Fi / satellite data transfer and GPS connection capabilities, which makes it possible to immediately upload location-based data to the shipping company for reporting and monitoring.
