Elemental Analysis: Petroleum Geology Applications for XRF and ICP-OES

Posted 9/3/2014

Elemental analysis is a valuable tool that can be used in petroleum geology during the drilling process to analyze drill cuttings and the return mud stream to gather a comprehensive petro-physical characterization of geological strata. Flowback and process water analysis also provides information about the geology, but has come into even more focus due to the environmental impact caused by the returning fluids. Join Dirk Wissmann, Senior Product Manager XRF, and Olaf Schulz, Product Manager ICP-OES, for a look at the well site analysis possibilities for the conventional and unconventional resources industries using SPECTRO’s XRF and ICP products. To find out more and register to attend the free Webinar taking place on September 17th at 09:00 a.m. or 05:00 p.m. (EDST: European daylight saving time). The content is the same and will be presented in English. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to your participation in the Webinar!

Application Report:

Analysis of Aqueous Solutions and Waters by ICP-OES with Twin Interface Plasma Observation

Posted 7/8/2014

This Application Report can be downloaded without registration. The multi-elemental analysis of aqueous solutions is one of the major applications for ICP-OES. This report demonstrates that the new SPECTROBLUE TI has the required analytical capabilities in terms of sensitivity, precision and accuracy to perform the analysis of metals and trace elements in aqueous solutions and waters. The SPECTROBLUE Twin Interface Option enables the accurate determination of alkali and earth alkali elements without the need for ionization buffering using the instrument’s radial mode. Trace elements are detected with high sensitivity using the axial mode. Instrument parameters and line selection are described. Excellent recoveries were found for the standard reference material NIST 1643e. You can download the Application Report without registration.

SPECTROLive
introductory statement

Since it was first published over 20 years ago, SPECTROLive has established itself as SPECTRO Analytical Instrument’s vehicle for up-to-date SPECTROmeter information. Originally distributed as a newsletter to customers, partners and friends of SPECTRO around the world on paper, in 2005 it went electronic – being distributed via email as a PDF file – and then in 2011, in its latest stage of metamorphosis, it became a website.

At SPECTROLive you can expect monthly updates in the form of new white papers, articles, videos, application report summaries and live webinars, where you can interact with our experts; taking full advantage of their know-how.
