Grow your business with our wide range of petrochemical solutions that enable you to achieve reliable results quickly. Confirm product quality and get your products out to customers faster – confidently.

While performing a wide range of analyses, refinery and petrochemical labs face increasing demands for improved productivity, increased efficiency, and reduced compliance risk with multiple standards and methods such as ASTM, UOP, GPA, EPA 325, etc.

Whether you work on oil exploration, refining, value added processing, or chemical development, we’re here to help you meet your requirements – no matter where your company falls on the hydrocarbon processing industry value chain.

Our solutions allow you to precisely measure contaminants and major constituents to ensure quality in various matrices including:

  • Crude oil
  • Combustion fuels such as gasoline, jet fuel, and diesel
  • Liquid petroleum gas (LPG)
  • Natural gas
  • Bulk petrochemicals
  • Polymers

For over 80 years, labs like yours have relied on our turnkey standard methods, consumables, software, services, and experience to speed up and simplify petrochemical analysis with accurate results, from product quality testing to regulatory compliance to trace contaminant analysis.
