Chemical & Petrochemical

Chemical industry is a relevant matter in everyday life.

The most part of products comes from chemical or petrochemical production processes.

GNR provides a series of products and solutions for the accurate and complete analysis in the chemical domain


XRF and XRD are  techniques more and more used in the petrochemical refinery chain, from the first step of exploration to crude oil production and then during the production of chemicals, oils  fuels and catalysts.

For instance, the elementary chemical composition of many compounds may be determined both by traditional X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) and by Total Reflection (TXRF), where it is necessary to verify the presence of micro-traces of pollutants in pure products.

Moreover determination of metal catalysts presence may be made through X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF), X-Ray Diffractometry (XRD) and can be effected in order to determine the important chemical-physical properties of materials.

GNR can offer the state of the art of XRD for phase analysis, crystal structure refinement and TXRF for trace element quantification during the entire chemical process. 

Rotrode Emission Spectrometer and Oil Analysis

RDE-OES technique is nowadays used in petrochemical application to test oils to determine additive, presence of  contaminant elements at trace level and metals coming from wearing and corrosion.

GNR provide advanced solutions for fuels and oil analysis in order to satisfy customer needs or requirements (i.e. ASTM standards).
