Optimized Applications


Reliable analysis with best-in-class sensitivity for fields such as petrochemical and food production.


Measurement of Sulfur Compounds in Gasoline [ASTM D5623 Compliant]

Quantification of sulfur compounds in gasoline is very important. The Nexis SCD-2030 offers linear sensitivity with respect to sulfur compounds, and since it is unaffected by hydrocarbons coexisting in diesel fuel, it is capable of highly accurate analysis.

Analysis of Trace Fragrant Components in Foods Using a Headspace Sampler

In combination with the HS-20 headspace sampler, the Nexis SCD-2030 can quantify fragrant sulfur components in beverages. Sulfur compounds play an important role as trace fragrant components in foods. While sulfur compounds heighten the flavor and aroma of foods, excess quantities will lead to bad odors. Additionally, they are used as additives to prevent putrefaction and to control oxidation.
