By serving producers, blenders, cargo operators, distributors and end users with routine testing and problem testing, you can see why we are your one stop shop for distillate peace of mind.
The range of refined products situated between lighter fractions, such as LPG or gasoline, and heavier products like as fuel oil is usually referred to as Middle Distillates. Examples include kerosene, jet fuel, gas and diesel oils, such as marine bunker fuels. Kerosene is processed for commercial and domestic heating, diesels are used for transportation, and jet fuel is used to power the engines of commercial and military aircraft.
We provide testing for refineries, tanker companies, traders, suppliers etc., for their crude oil, middle distillates and other petroleum products. The testing is provided to oil refineries and other clients, through a global hydrocarbons laboratory network staffed with experienced petroleum chemists and equipped with modern instrumentation. Our labs test to ASTM, ISO, IP, and other petroleum industry protocols.
In addition to providing the regular middle distillate testing and finished product quality checks, we also offer troubleshooting and contamination identification services. Our experienced team provides the expertise and resources you need to ensure a quality deliverable.
