Sulfur in Liquefied Petroleum Gases

Sulfur in Liquefied Petroleum Gases
Test Method
Determines total sulfur in liquefied petroleum (LP) gases and in liquid petroleum products by the Wickbold oxy-hydrogen burner method. Also suitable for burning butane-butene mixtures to determine trace amounts of volatile chlorides.

Wickbold Combustion Apparatus
Conforms to ASTM D2384, D2784 and related specifications
Burns samples in a stainless steel oxy-hydrogen burner to determine total sulfur in petroleum products in the 0.1 to 300ppm range. Tests samples which are viscous, highly aromatic or of high sulfur content with the use of appropriate solvents.
Combustion chamber and stainless steel burner are housed in an insulated chamber with hinged heat-resistant and glare-proof shield for viewing burner flame. To ignite flame, depress electronic spark ignitor handle at side of unit. Ignitor shuts off when handle is released. Built-in pressure regulators with gauges allow for accurate adjustment and monitoring of hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen pressure. Burner is easily disassembled for cleaning.
Supplied with a complete set of Borosilicate Glass and quartz glassware, including 200mL sample reservoir, sample capillary, combustion chamber, absorber, spray trap and cooling bulb, and compression-type gas connection fittings for 1⁄4" (6mm) O.D. tubing. Housed in a finished aluminum cabinet. For LPG, natural gas and refinery gas samples, order accessory sample adapter.
