CONTINUOUS MONITORING OF LEAD CONTAMINATION IN UNLEADED GASOLINE

A field test was conducted to study the feasibility of monitoring trace lead in shipments of unleaded gasoline by means of an X-ray fluorescence continuous low lead analyzer. Field data of good precision were in agreement with the accepted ASTM D-3237 atomic absorption method. X-ray Fluorescence appears to be the best practical method available to determine the average level of lead contamination in large volumes of unleaded gasoline in the field with accuracy and precision. /GMRL/
