How inert coatings improve sulfur analysis.      

An inert flow path will prevent adsorption, contamination and loss of active and reactive compounds like H2S, mercaptan, and other sulfur species.  Our SilcoNert 2000 coating offers superior sulfur inertness and near 100% recovery, even at extreme part-per-billion detection limits or after 7 days of storage; making sulfur testing reliable even in downhole and field testing applications.  Reactive uncoated stainless steel sample cylinders adsorb all the H2S sample after a day.  Need a high durability inert coating?  Our Dursan coating is ideal for field and downhole sampling.

SilcoNert® and Dursan® Benefits

Uncoated active stainless steel or glass surfaces result in slow response, costly rework, and process failures. SilcoTek® coatings give analysts confidence in the reliability of results.  Even under extreme conditions found in refinery, flare and downhole environments; SilcoTek coatings significantly improve sample response and reliability. 

Benefits include:

  • Get reliable and true sulfur readings
  • Improved instrument reliability & uptime
  • Fast results, improve process control by eliminating delays in system response
  • Prevent retesting and rework, improved productivity
  • Assure product and upstream sulfur content  


Without inert coatings like SilcoNert® and Dursan®, analyzer and downhole sampling systems produce inconsistent or substandard results, such as:

  • Erratic sulfur calibration

  • Long delays in sulfur response in CEMS

  • Erroneous test results

  • False positive or negative sulfur readings

  • Low or no sulfur in sample cylinders
