Analysis

“FOR OVER 30 YEARS, WE HAVE CARRIED OUT ANALYSES OF A WIDE VARIETY OF CRUDE OILS, NAPHTHA, FUEL OILS, AND NOW ON DIESEL. THIS HAS PROVIDED US WITH A RICH LIBRARY OF THESE PRODUCTS’ CHARACTERISTICS.”

We carry out all the analyses required for the storage and transportation of hydrocarbons in our laboratory. These analyses are conducted on samples of crude oil, naphtha or gas oil, either sampled by ourselves in accordance with ISO standards or provided by our clients, who need to know their characteristics: water content, density, yield stress, viscosity, pour point, Saybolt color for naphtha, ASTM color for diesel.

We are able to verify the characteristics of viscous mixtures of paraffinic or viscous crude oils, performed before shipping to ensure their compatibility with storage or transport rules (pour point, yield stress, viscosity).

We also have the ability to perform analysis of additive-containing products, for instance to measure the effectiveness of an experimental additive (evolution of the pour point or of viscosity, depending on the percentage of the additive in the product).
