Sulfur in the Fields: S832 and CNS928

August 26, 2022

Sulfur is an essential nutrient in crop production. It is vital for the production of chlorophyll and several amino acids that form protein, among other functions in plants. In recent years, the world has been paying more attention to sulfur emissions, trying to minimize SO2 in the air, which in turn minimizes the sulfur deposited naturally in the fields. When combined with the trend toward high-yield crop production in many areas of the world, knowing the actual level of sulfur in your fields has become even more important. Sulfur can also be measured in plant tissues, and then, of course, knowing the sulfur content of fertilizer is also necessary to correct any sulfur deficiencies or excess in your fields. All of these sulfur determinations can be handled with a single combustion instrument from LECO.

Don't Suffer your Sulfur in Portland Cement with the SC832

January 28, 2022

Portland cement, one of the most ubiquitous building materials in the world, is not all the same. There are five standardized types of Portland cement classified by the ASTM C150 standard, and each of these different types have different best-use cases. Part of what distinguishes these types of cement is the concentrations of carbon and sulfur in the precursor materials. Sulfur is especially important in determining the final chemical resistances of the Portland cement, so knowing the sulfur concentration is critical to correctly determining the type and quality of the final material.
