Petroleum Products

API degree, specific gravity or density, acid number (TAN), base number (TBN), refractive index, water content, sulfur, mercaptan … there is probably no other industry where that a wide variety of different parameters must be determined in quality control as in the petroleum industry.

Our offering includes four product lines which are required in almost every petrochemical laboratory:

ASTM and ISO Petroleum Standards

In most petroleum laboratories, testing of the composition, purity, density, etc. is done according to ASTM or ISO petroleum standards.
The table below gives an overview of the ASTM and ISO standards our analysers cover:
