  • Measurement of oil in wax for oil & gas industry

    The measurement of oil in wax is important within the oil refining industry because wax derived from petroleum sources is an important by-product of the oil refining process. These waxes are widely used in the manufacture of many materials and products as they have the ability to confer specific mechanical and physical properties such as flexibility, hardness and friction. A wide variety of waxes is manufactured with specific characteristics. One of the most critical factors controlling wax properties is the oil content. This means routine measurement of the content of oil in wax is essential for consistent control of the production process. Our benchtop NMR analyser MQC systems provides a fast, simple and accurate method of measuring oil in wax. The MQC may be calibrated to provide results equivalent to ASTM D721-06 and IP 158.

  • Measurement of wax in oil for oil & gas industry

    Oils vary widely in their properties largely depending on their source. One important characteristic of crude oils is their wax content. High wax content has profound effects on flow-ability and the propensity of the oil to cause blockages in pipelines and equipment. Routine measurement of wax content ensures that problematic oils are identified enabling appropriate changes to be made during their processing. Our benchtop NMR analyser MQC systems provide a fast, simple and accurate method of measuring wax content in oils.

  • Measurement of hydrogen in fuels for oil & gas industry

    The combustion properties of fuels are key to the efficient and safe operation of engines used in machinery and plant. One important way to measure the combustion properties of a fuel is by its hydrogen content. The measurement of hydrogen content is widely used for the characterisation of aviation fuel but with the increasing costs of all fuels and the greater incentives for fuel adulteration, this test is increasingly being adopted for non-aviation applications. Our benchtop NMR analyser MQC-23 system is widely used for the measurement of hydrogen in fuels in accordance with ASTM D7171-05.

  • Percent Aromatics in Gasoline #3008

    The aromatic content of gasoline determines many of its combustion properties. Since it also impacts the environmental characteristics of the fuel it is desirable to have accurate measurements of this parameter. The traditional analytical method for measuring aromatics is either gas chromatography (GC) or an older method entitled fluorescent indicator adsorption (FIA), both of which are time and labor intensive. This note will discuss the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of % aromatics in fuel products using fiber optic-based, Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR can be applied in real time directly in process monitoring or as a laboratory procedure. In either case NIR is a time and money saving alternative to traditional methods.

    Precision moisture analysis instruments for moisture testing for in-service lubricants

    A Chemical-Free Alternative to Karl Fischer. Accurate control of moisture in lubricating oils is critical to keeping your most important machines in optimal condition, but historically there have been few good options for  measuring moisture content. The “crackle test” is easy, but not accurate enough to keep modern machines running at their best. Karl Fischer titration is very accurate, but difficult to use, expensive to operate, and requires hazardous chemical reagents.
