Analysis for trace metals in the petrochemical and energy industry is done for a variety of reasons, such as testing for wear metals, corrosion prevention, preventing damage to catalysts and to even help reduce pollution. Samples from heavy crude oils to refined petroleum products require a digestion system capable of handling the temperatures needed for complete digestion and the subsequent pressures generated.

The Milestone ultraWAVE, uniquely equipped with powerful Single Reaction Chamber (SRC) technology, is the optimal digestion solution for the petrochemical industry. With higher temperature and pressure capability than traditional microwave systems, it can safely process all types of petrochemical samples, resulting in complete digestions with low residual carbon.

When it comes to rotor-based microwave sample prep, nothing comes close to the Milestone ETHOS UP.  With our high-pressure rotor, stainless steel construction and patented vent-and-reseal technology, the ETHOS UP ensures market-leading safety and productivity for trace metals analysis in petrochemical laboratories.

Traditional techniques for mercury analysis often pose challenges that can affect efficiency and productivity. Our Direct Mercury Analysis technology sets the standard for processing speed and precision. The Milestone DMA-80 evo provides superior ease-of-use for the determination of mercury regardless of sample matrix, eliminating sample prep and delivering results in 5-6 minutes.
