SPECTROIL OIL & FUEL ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS SPECTROMETER
SPECTROIL OIL & FUEL ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS SPECTROMETER Image

Spectroil Series are easy to use, reliable and the workhorses of commercial and military oil analysis laboratories that require the rapid analysis of wear metals, contaminants and additives in lubricants. It measures trace quantities of elements dissolved or suspended as fine particles in natural or synthetic petroleum based products using the time-tested and reliable rotating disc electrode (RDE) technique.

The Spectroil is the ideal spectrometer for the in-service oil analysis laboratory because technology has made it smaller and the addition of an innovative CCD optical system has made it more flexible for even the most exotic in-service oil analysis applications. The standard configuration is equipped and calibrated for 22 wear metals, contaminants and additives. Additional elements can be added at any time, even in the field and if your application suddenly calls for unusual elements such as niobium, lithium or rhodium. An external computer with current Windows software controls the system. The additional capability to analyze engine coolants is available as an option.

LNF PARTICLE COUNTER & SHAPE CLASSIFIER Image

The Spectro LNF Q200 series applies the world’s best oil particle counter technology.  With an intuitive, configurable GUI and no calibration required, the Q200 series is fast, accurate and easy to use.

Sample preparation is efficient with the LNF. Viscosities up to 320 cSt can be processed without dilution due to the wide dynamic range. And unlike conventional light blockage particle counters, there are no flow control valves that need adjusting when testing different sample viscosities.

The advanced design makes it much more than just a particle counter: The LNF also calculates free water in ppm, and differentiates contaminants. Several models are available providing particle counts and codes, abnormal wear classification and ferrous wear measurement.

Classification of wear particle shape

LNF Q200 directly images wear particle silhouettes, and counts and classifies wear particles over 20 microns as cutting wear, sliding wear, fatigue wear, nonmetallic or fibers. This allows operators to determine the type of wear debris, wear mode and potential source from internal machinery components.


Ferrous Content Measurement

Ferrous wear measurement is a critical requirement for monitoring machine condition. The high sensitivity magnetometer measures and reports ferrous content in ppm/ml, and provides ferrous particle count and size distribution for large ferrous particles. The in-line design of the magnetometer with the LNF flow cell enables measurement of both ferrous content and total particle count on the same sample, eliminating the need to measure Ferrous content on another instrument.


Models available:

  • SpectroLNF- Q210: LNF Particle counter.
  • SpectroLNF -Q220: LNF Particle counter with wear particle shape classifier.
  • SpectroLNF- Q230: LNF Particle counter, automatic shape classifier, and ferrous monitoring with a magnetometer.

T2FM Q500 - Laboratory Ferrography
T2FM Q500 - Laboratory Ferrography Image
T2FM Q500 Analytical Ferrography Laboratory is a complete analytical system for the separation and interpretation of wear and contaminant particles in used lubricant oils, hydraulic fluids, coolants and fuels. It consists of the T2FM Ferrogram maker, a bichromatic microscope, video camera and image capture software. The SpectroT2FM Q500 is fast because there is no delay time as sample is pumped through plastic tubing before reaching the ferrogram surface. The T2FM delivers the entire sample and all the particles contained therein onto the ferrogram surface. A crystal clear rinse is obtained without fail for every ferrogram. There are no last minute drips of oil sample onto the ferrogram leaving distracting halos around the particles when viewed under the microscope. A bichromatic microscope is used to view and examine ferrograms made with the SpectroT2FM Q500. The bichromatic microscope is equipped with both reflected (red) and transmitted (green) light sources so that the ferrogram may be illuminated from both above and below the microscope stage. With bichromatic illumination, metal particles, which reflect light, appear bright red, whereas nonmetallic particles appear green because light transmits through them. A video camera connected to a computer displays, prints, stores and retrieves ferrographic images. Comparison of old ferrograms with ferrograms from recent lubricating oil samples allows determination of evolving wear modes inside a machine or engine.

Q3000 PORTABLE AUTOMATIC VISCOMETER
Q3000 PORTABLE AUTOMATIC VISCOMETER Image

The SpectroVisc Q3000 series viscometers are the first truly portable, solvent-free, temperature-controlled 40C kinematic viscometers, providing high-accuracy measurements for easy detection of viscosity variations caused by contamination, mix-up and oil degradation. The devices were designed to determine kinematic viscosity in the field for applications where immediate results are essential for determining the health of critical equipment.


The SpectroVisc Q3000 family includes two models:

  • SpectroVisc Q3050 portable viscometer, 1-700 cSt @ 40° C
  • SpectroVisc Q3000 portable viscometer, 10-350 cSt @ 40° C

SpectroVisc Q3000 viscometers use a patented split cell design that enables measurement of kinematic viscosity using only a few drops (60µL) of oil. Operation of the device is simple; after loading ~60µl oil into the upper well of the chip, gravitational force causes the fluid sample to flow down the microchannel. A proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller is used with a heating element to effectively maintain the test cell temperature at 40°C to provide a true 40C kinematic viscosity measurement. After measurement, the test cell is simply wiped clean with a non-abrasive pad.

This viscometer operates as a Hele-Shaw cell, where Stokes flow is present between two parallel plates. The fluid passing between an LED and a photodiode causes a drop in the photodiode voltage. The average velocity of the fluid is calculated from the elapsed time between photodiodes and  is then used  to generate a kinematic viscosity for the measured sample.


Features & Benefits

  • Conforms to ASTM WK40831 – “New Test Method for Field Determination of Kinematic Viscosity Using Microchannel Viscometer”
  • Direct kinematic viscosity measurement
  • Split-cell capillary channel

MINITEST FFK GREASE FLOW TESTER
MINITEST FFK GREASE FLOW TESTER Image

MINITEST FFK automatically determines the flow-pressure properties of lubricating grease at low temperatures down to -60°C by means of the Kesternich test. The original and time-consuming method is now fully automated and the measuring range is extended far below the original one, resulting in a considerably improved test precision. A powerful two stage Peltier element avoids the use of a large and expensive cryostat. The principle of the test is based upon the necessary pressure build-up to press an amount of grease through a standard test nozzle at a preset temperature.


Advanced Technology

The original manual and time-consuming method is now fully automated in MINITEST FFK. The measuring range is extended far below the original test method. Temperature control is performed with Peltier elements and eliminates the use of a large and expensive cryostat. No further accessories are necessary.


Features & Benefits

• Fully Automatic • Temperature Adjustable from -60 to +30°C (-76 to + 86°F) • Thermoelectric Cooling without Cryostat (Peltier Elements) • Portable and User Friendly • Powered by Vehicle Battery for Field Use


Sample Handling

A layer of the grease to be tested is put on a glass plate without air bubbles. The measuring nozzle is then pressed multiple times onto the layer of lubrication grease until it is filled with grease. The full nozzle is inserted into the thermostatically controlled aluminum block of the tester and the chamber is air sealed.


Test Parameters

The test temperature and the equilibrium time are programmed. Further the expected flow pressure and the pressure increase for each step. For high flow pressures, a starting pressure above barometric can be set to limit the measuring time.


Measuring Procedure

The test temperature, equilibrium time, expected flow pressure and the pressure increase for each step are programmed. For high flow pressures, a starting pressure above barometric can be set to limit the measuring time. The test is performed fully automatically. When the test temperature is reached, the equilibrium time of up to two hours is started. After the equilibrium time, the pressure above the sample nozzle is increased in steps until a sudden pressure decrease, indicating that the grease is pressed through the nozzle. The test is stopped and the last pressure value is displayed as the flow pressure according to Kesternich.


Applications

Flow-properties of lubrication grease at low temperatures are a measure of great significance for central lubrication systems of vehicles and machineries. This property can best be measured according the method of Kesternich. This test method is suitable for temperatures at which no grease leaks out of the test nozzle. MINITEST FFK is an instrument for the determination of the flow pressure of lubricating greases at temperatures down to -60°C (-76°F).

Vapor Pressure
MINIVAP VAPOR PRESSURE TESTER
MINIVAP VAPOR PRESSURE TESTER Image

MINIVAP VP Vision is a highly versatile portable vapor pressure tester that features best-in-class precision and a pressure range of 0-2000 kPa. It is the first analyzer that demonstrates excellence in engineering by earning certificates for robustness and durability. Based on Grabner´s cutting-edge Cockpit™ technology, the instrument offers unmatched networking capabilities and enables worldwide access to analyzers.


Engineered for Excellence

MINIVAP VP Vision measures gasoline, jet fuel, crude oil, LPG and solvents. The analyzer provides a wide pressure range of 0 – 2000 kPa, without compromising precision. Long-term testing has demonstrated an unmatched repeatability of less than 0.2 kPa. The newly developed Grabner 2D-Correction™ (273 points) and exact piston positioning guarantee that accurate and precise results are received over the full measuring range.  MINIVAP VP Vision incorporates Grabner´s Sampling Pro™ valve design, which during ruggedness tests proved to be the best-in- class piston based design for minimizing cross contamination between various sample types.


Access. Anywhere. Anytime.

With the Cockpit™ PC software multiple instruments are automatically recognized and devices all around the world can be configured, monitored, diagnosed, serviced and upgraded from one central lab. The software can be accessed through a secure VPN tunnel, allowing for true mobile access to instruments from any place at any time. A unique call home function facilitates easy uplink to our well trained support team.


Highest Accuracy – Lowest Limit: Low Volatility Model MINIVAP VPL Vision

While the standard VP model is designed to sustain pressures up to 20 bar, some applications require increased measurement sensitivity for samples with a very low volatility. These applications include e.g. the measurement of Diesel, Oils or Flavors & Fragrances. The MINIVAP VPL Vision model is designed for low volatility measurements up to 150 kPa (21.8 psi). It shows a measuring repeatability better than 0.1 kPa for low volatile samples.


Direct / Indirect Determination of the Absolute Vapor Pressure (“VOC-Methods”)

The model MINIVAP VPL Vision was developed to automate the manual ASTM D2879 Standard Test Method for Vapor Pressure by Isoteniscope for low volatile samples, which is used by the chemical industry. The instrument incorporates a direct and an extrapolated “VOC” method for absolute vapor pressure measurement of single- and multi-component samples.

The direct “VOC”-method is a static method for determining the absolute vapor pressure required for safety data sheets. The indirect method additionally allows to extrapolate to extremely low pressures or to temperatures that exceed the instruments temperature range (-100°C to +300°C). Both methods yield results comparable to the static ASTM D2879 Isoteniscope method, but do not require sample evacuation prior to testing. Based on the GRABNER Triple Expansion Method, air/gases are removed automatically from the measurement result and the sample composition is maintained during measurements.

“VOC”-methods are available in both the MINIVAP VPL and the VP Vision analyzer. Because of a better sensitivity for low volatile samples, the precision of the VPL Vision is significantly better in the pressure range of 0.1 to 30 kPa.

CRUDE OIL PACKAGE

MINIVAP VPXpert or MINIVAP VPSHcrude_oil_aks3 (only VPSH: plus Rocking Plate) – Floating Piston Cylinder GRABNER INSTRUMENTS’ complete package for the vapor pressure measurement of crude oil according to ASTM D6377 (Expansion Method). MINIVAP VPXpert and VPSH are extremely versatile instruments for the automatic determination of the vapor pressure behavior of gasoline and gasoline oxygenated blends, live and dead crude oil, solvents and other chemical

compounds. MINIVAP is the world wide standard instrument that is used by all major refineries, oil and pipeline companies, independent laboratories and car manufacturers. The US-EPA declared MINIVAP as the official reference instrument for the USA. MINIVAP VPS/H are stand-alone units that do not require any accessories. The unique piston based design for automatic sample introduction and volume expansion of the measuring cell makes an expensive and bulky vacuum pump unnecessary. The Grabner measuring principle in combination with the latest standards ASTM D6377 (for Crude Oil) and ASTM D6378 (for Gasoline) avoids tedious sample chilling and air saturation. This new technology significantly increasesrefinery profits: it reduces expensive labor time, eliminates operator bias and has considerably improved test precision that offers the advantage to blend closer to the limits and avoid product give-away. MINIVAP VPS is mostly used for QC purposes while VPXpert and VPSH offer even more features for crude oil and R&D applications, like volatility studies at elevated temperatures and at very low vapor/liquid ratios.

MINIDIS ADXPERT AUTOMATIC MINI-DISTILLATION SYSTEM
MINIDIS ADXPERT AUTOMATIC MINI-DISTILLATION SYSTEM Image

This true atmospheric distillation analyzer is extremely compact, portable and light weight and operates as a fully stand-alone unit. Designed for the quick and accurate quality control in laboratories and in the field, a distillation run on light products takes just 15 minutes and requires as little as 6 mL of sample. Because of its small size, the portable mini-distillation apparatus is the ultimate solution for places where limited or no lab-space is available.

MINIDIS ADXpert uses full automation from sample introduction to heating regulation, vapor temperature registration, volume measurement in the receiver compartment and calculation of the distillation curve from the raw data obtained during the test. This way it achieves the highest levels of accuracy, repeatability and reproducibility. The automatic operation involves simply inserting the filling tube into the sample container and pressing “RUN”. No sample preparation like cooling is necessary; neither special programming of the test conditions or prior distillation knowledge is required. Fully automatic cleaning programs and the use of inexpensive and disposable sample cups guarantee highest productivity and eliminate the need for manual cleaning of glassware.

MINIDIS ADXpert performs according to ASTM D7344, the New Mini-method for the Distillation of Petroleum Products at Atmospheric Pressure and generates detailed D86 test reports. The distillation apparatus has a resolution almost twice as good as D86 distillation units, yielding results that are well within ASTM D86 r/R requirements. The extremely versatile unit allows precise testing of various gasoline, jet fuel and diesel products (groups 0-4), biofuels, solvents, aromatics, organic liquids, chemicals and contaminated or blended samples.


Revolutionizing ASTM D86 Testing

The automatic distillation analyzer MINIDIS ADXpert is revolutionizing ASTM D86 testing. It is a true atmospheric distillation analyzer in an extremely small format. The automation significantly improves the repeatability and the reproducibility of the highly precise results. The MINIDIS offers a detailed ASTM D86 compliant report and prints and/or transmits the results via a serial PC link.


Outstanding: Highest Safety

Broken glassware is one of the major reasons for fire hazards experienced when distilling with glass flasks. Because of the rugged metal housing, the sealed metal distillation cycle and the small sample volume, the MINIDIS ADXpert does not need a fire protection system. Cheap and durable metal sample cups instead of expensive glass flasks significantly reduce consumable costs and make the MINIDIS ADXpert a perfect solution for distillation testing within challenging environments.


Full Automation for Highest Productivity

The MINIDIS ADXpert provides a complete distillation run and test report in 15 minutes (for gasoline) using only 6 mL of sample. The automatic operation involves simply placing the filling tube into the sample and pressing “RUN”. No special programming of test conditions or prior distillation test knowledge is required. With the automatic sample introduction, the pre-programmed rinsing cycle and the use of disposable sample cups, any test preparation or manual cleaning of glass parts is avoided.


Unmatched Versatility

Applicable for gasoline, jet fuel and diesel products (groups 0-4), biofuels, solvents, aromatics, organic liquids, chemicals and contaminated or blended samples. Fast measurements, automatic cleaning and close to no waste allow for versatile applications in laboratories, at-line or in Mobile Labs.


Problematic Samples? No Problem!

Classical D86 distillation analyzers often encounter so called “problematic” samples. Mining solvents, condensates and raffinates for example cannot be measured by a D86 analyzer in most cases. MINIDIS ADXpert incorporates a versatile temperature control for a very small sample volume, which allows easy and fast heater adjustment. So even “problematic” samples can be distilled until the final boiling point is reached! The highly accurate volume detection system allows for precise and repeatable analysis of Biofuels and vegetable oils mixtures.


True Portability for All Applications

MINIDIS ADXpert performs according to the new D7344 standard for true atmospheric distillation. Results of the MINIDIS ADXpert excellently match D86, ISO 3405, IP123 and DIN51751 results. Fully automatic measurements, the temperature controlled sample introduction and a sophisticated automatic heating program eliminate sources for D86 distillation operator bias.

MINIDIS ADXpert features true portability, the rugged housing and optional 12V vehicle battery operation, making it the perfect solution for all kinds of applications, where standard laboratory instrumentation can not be applied – such as measurements in the field or in mobile laboratories.

PETRODIST 150S RECOVER BITUMEN FROM CRUDE OIL
PETRODIST 150S RECOVER BITUMEN FROM CRUDE OIL Image

The processor controlled crude oil distillation system includes control of heating and vacuum as well as the display and storage of all important process values: The design is based on the distillation of a charge of 10 – 20 kg of crude oil in a minimum of time with a high throughput until a final temperature of 400 °C AET.

  • Temperature of heating bath (PT 100)
  • Temperature of product in flask (PT 100)
  • Temperature of vapor (PT 100)
  • Pressure of distillation (0-100Torr)

The crude oil is charged into a stainless steel flask and heated by an electrical heating bath. All vapors are passing through a  stainless steel column and are condensed in an integrated vertical condenser. An additional high performance condenser  which is located on top of the column construction is required to condensate all remaining light boiling components.

All condensed product is being discharged by means of a tempered gear pump into a tank (receiver) or a fraction collector. The discharge process is being performed independent from the current system pressure (atmospheric or vacuum) to avoid any manual discharge in between the different pressure conditions.

The whole processing of the distillation can be visualized all the time by glass connecting pieces, a viewing glass in the flask, condenser and glass intermediate discharge receiver, located between pump and column. The distillation is performed in several pressure steps (atmospheric and vacuum) until a final atmospheric equivalent temperature (AET) of 400°C. Once the final temperature is reached and distillation is

HDXRF High Definition X-Ray Fluorescence (HD XRF) is a multi-element analysis technique offering significantly enhanced detection performance over traditional ED or WD XRF. This technique applies state-of-the-art monochromating and focusing optics, enabling multiple select-energy excitation beams that efficiently excite a broad range of target elements in the sample. Monochromatic excitation dramatically reduces scattering background under the fluorescence peaks, greatly enhancing elemental detection limits and precision. HDXRF is a direct measurement technique and does not require consumables or special sample preparation.

Stability & Flocculation Analysis
PORLA STABILITY ANALYZER
PORLA STABILITY ANALYZER Image

Porla Analyser can analyse heavy and crude oils that cover extremely wide viscosity and asphaltene content ranges from very high to very low. Very often, low asphaltene content oils cause blending and process problems. In addition, the new Porla has an analysis programme for blending the parameter of asphaltene free oils and blend components. Furthermore, Porla is perfectly suited to the analysis of bitumen. Porla will report a comprehensive set of stability and compatibility parameters such as P-value, Pa, Po, FR5/1(toluene/xylene equivalent), FRmax, In and Sbn all in one operation.  As a result of the exceptionally wide applicability area, Porla will result in the biggest benefits and profitability increases to end-users.


The unique detector technology of New Generation Porla, based on the reflection of asphaltene sensitive light, facilitates the applying of a low dilution of oil samples, resulting in the accurate analysis of oils containing as little as 0.1% asphaltene and sometimes even lower. Other particles besides asphaltenes, such as coke, do not disturb the Porla analysis. Therefore, the removal of coke prior to analysis is not necessary.


New Generation Porla is a very useful and practical tool for planning and monitoring the blending of feedstocks/crude oils, heavy oil blending (from cracking bottoms and solvents), the blending of bitumen and optimisation of cracking units (e.g. thermal and hydrocracking) of oil refineries. In addition, New Generation Porla can also be used for monitoring visbreaking processes and the dilution of tar sands with light ends in the production fields of tar sand crudes.

Besides its unique performance in analysing the stability and compatibility parameters of low asphaltene content oils, the New Generation Porla Analyser includes an automatic procedure for analysing the ExxonMobil heavy and crude oil blending model parameter Sbn (solubility blending number) of asphaltene free oils and blend components.


We have made the New Generation Porla operation easy for end-users. Operation of the analysis programme is very simple and easy. The programme gives default values to the operator to prepare the stock solution, and there is no need to prepare more than one stock solution from oil to be analysed and an aromatic solvent.

We offer strong application development support for Porla end-users when commissioning the analyser at a customer site/laboratory. Our expert will remain at the customer’s laboratory for 4-5 days to give user-training and run a wide range of oil samples with the operator, which can be analysed in the laboratory. He will also give instructions concerning sample preparation and the running parameters of these oils. As a result of this service, the end-user has ready applications for different oil types and an understanding on how to built applications for possible new oil types. This service will ensure a smooth start for new Porla end-users.

Sometimes, some new oils to be analysed might seem challenging or the analysis results may look a bit peculiar. For those situations, we have a special service for our Porla users. The only thing the Porla end-user needs to do is send a sample to our application laboratory in Finland. We will analyse the sample free of charge in our laboratory, report the results and give instructions on how the oil sample can be prepared and successfully analysed in the future. The only cost that the end-user must pay is the transportation of the sample to our laboratory.

Extraction Systems
PILOEX SL5 SOLID-LIQUID EXTRACTOR
PILOEX SL5 SOLID-LIQUID EXTRACTOR Image

For application in universities, technical colleges for training students.

The solvent circulates between extraction vessel, evaporator and condenser. The solid matter in the extraction vessel is continuously rinsed with purified solvent until all solubles are leached out of the solid matter.


The solvent, which is charged with the extract, flows from the extraction vessel into the evaporator, where the extract will be collected and concentrated.

After terminating the leaching process, a further purification of the extract by evaporation is possible.

The system is designed for batch (discontinuous) operation but can also be operated semi-continuously.

The standard system can be operated either for vacuum operation or overpressure operation as well.

The system can be designed either in glass, stainless steel or other material, depending on the application.


The following modes of operation can alternatively be carried out :

  • Extraction with continuous flow of solvent
  • Extraction by periodic flooding of the extraction vessel and subsequent draining through siphon action (Soxhlet principle)
  • Extraction with cold solvent
  • Extraction with hot solvent
PILOEX 250-SR MIXER-SETTLER FOR LIQUID-LIQUID EXTRACTION
PILOEX 250-SR MIXER-SETTLER FOR LIQUID-LIQUID EXTRACTION Image

This mixer-settler apparatus has been designed to study liquid-liquid-extraction processes. One part of the component, which has to be separated from the liquid phase (raffinate phase) is extracted by means of a liquid solvent (extract phase). This component is concentrated in the solvent (extract phase from the extraction phase to extraction phase). The raffinate phase and the extract phase will be led through the system in opposite directions. The advantage of the mixer-settler apparatus is the high efficiency of the exchange stages.

The latest re-design of EMS 250 SR liquid-liquid extractor consists of a 10-stage Mixer-Settler arrangement to work simultaneously.

Each stage consists of a mixer with downstream settler. In the mixer the light and the heavy phase from the neighbouring stages are brought together, are intensively mixed and then simultaneously conveyed into the settler. The mixing is realized by motor driven spiral stirrers for each mixing stage. Due to the intensive mixing the phases are divided into drops, so that the greater exchange surface, the substance transfer from one phase to another is heavily intensified.

Together with the component to be extracted, e.g. heavy phase, the raffinate phase is pumped from the raffinate store into the mixer of the last stage of the extractor. The solvent, e.g. light phase is pumped from the corresponding store tank into the mixer of the first stage of the extractor. Both phases, raffinate and extract are led into opposite directions through the extractor, the raffinate phase from the last stage and the extract phase from the first to the last extraction stage.

On it’s way through the apparatus the component which is to be extracted, is increasingly separated from stage to stage. Simultaneously the solvent stream (extract phase) absorbes more and more of the extracted component. The raffinate phase from which the component has been extracted, leaves the extractor at the first stage and is collected in a collecting vessel. The extracted phase leaded with the extracted component leaves the extractor at the last stage and is collected in a collecting vessel.

Contrary to other separation methods, the extraction will not directly lead to pure components. The extract phase is e.g. to be separated in a downstream distillation/rectification into extracted component and solvent.

This extraction process has the advantage of a low energy consumption for the separation of various compounds of liquid mixtures and is ideally applicable for demonstration purposes as well as for studying liquid-liquid extraction fundamentals in research and education.


Applications

  • Metal salt extractions
  • Liquids with low surface tension
  • Difficult coalescence in dispersed phase
  • Variation of the resident time for phases in the extraction stages
  • Reactions occuring during the extraction procedure
  • Considerable variations of the density during extraction

Water Content
Aquamax KF Water Content Analyzer
Aquamax KF Water Content Analyzer Image

A truly versatile Coulometric Karl Fischer Titrator for water content determination of gases, liquids and solids. The Aquamax KF PLUS is a small foot print titrator with a full numeric keypad for data entry and results manager software for data storage and retrieval. As well as being a stand-alone instrument, this titrator can be combined with accessories such as an Oil Evaporator or a Solids Evaporator system.

Aquamax KF Reagent A is a general coulometric KF anolyte for use with generator electrodes which incorporate a frit or diaphragm to separate the anode and cathode chambers. Used in conjunction with Aquamax KF Reagent C this formulation is supplied in a pack of 8 x 100ml bottles and 8 x 5ml cathode ampoules, all conveniently located in a single carton. This UN certified carton can be used to transport these reagent packs by road, rail, sea and air and the total pack volume is less than one litre so they can be shipped as limited quantity.

To conform to ASTM, API, EI, ISO (plus other) methodologies for water content determination of oil and petroleum products, the anode regent must be modified with xylene to improve sample solubility and miscibility. Aquamax KF Reagent A is pre-cut with xylene, and other solubilizers to eliminate side reactions, so that the operator does not have to store or mix chemicals.

We conducted extensive comparison trials of Aquamax KF Reagents against other leading brands with very positive results. Using water standards ranging from 10 µg water up to 10,000 µg water under controlled conditions we found Aquamax KF Reagent to be equivalent in perfomance accuracy to the other brands but much faster in titration speed and with low background drift value.

Modernised with chemical resistant anodised aluminium side panels and improved features.

ROW Algae Autonomous Non-Contact Sensor for Water Qqality Monitoring
ROW Algae Autonomous Non-Contact Sensor for Water Qqality Monitoring Image

Early warning system for harmful algal blooms by determination of cholophyll-a concentration changes.

WHAT ARE ALGAL BLOOMS AND WHY MONITOR THEM?

Algal blooms tend to form in presence of ideal condition of temperature, nutrients and light. Algal blooms become harmful when colonies of algae—simple plants that live in the sea and freshwater—grow out of control while producing toxic or negative effects on people, fish, shellfish, marine mammals, and birds.

The human illnesses caused by harmful algal blooms, though rare, can be debilitating or even fatal.

Harmful algal blooms’ occurence are on the rise and are becoming a major environmental concern in many states, not only because they affect the health of people and marine ecosystems, but also the prosperity of local economies.

In consequence, governments and environmental authorities request effective algal bloom monitoring tools.


WHY CHLOROPHYLL-A DETECTION?

Chlorophyll-a concentration is the most commonly used parameter for measuring algal concentration or biomass, and assessing the occurence of algal blooms.

All photosynthetic organisms contain chlorophyll. Among all forms of chlorophyll, only chlorophyll-a is common to all algae.

A few micrograms of chlorophyll-a per litre are considered to be normal. Concentrations beyond 10 or 20 μg/L are evaluated as algal bloom.

Only a small amount of the algal biomass is eaten by zooplankton, the remains sink to the bottom where they are decomposed by bacteria.

Oxygen at the bottom can fall to stress levels for most organisms or even to near zero - causing death of the ecosystem in the area.



Features

  • Fast and convenient in-situ monitoring
  • No sampling or preparation required
  • Non-contact technique for maintenance-free operations
  • Fewer false alarms through advanced algorithmics

Applications

  • Water intakes and marine waterways
  • Water reservoirs and drinking water sources
  • Management of dams
  • Beaches, bathing and water leisure areas
  • Fishing areas
  • Water quality research
  • Fauna and wildlife
  • Human health
 
ROW Dom Autonomous Non-Contact Sensor for Water Quality Monitoring
ROW Dom Autonomous Non-Contact Sensor for Water Quality Monitoring Image

Early warning system for determination of water treatment by monitoring of dissolved organic matters (DOM) concentration changes.

MONITORING THRESHOLD LEVELS

ROW DOM monitors the levels of fluorescent dissolved organic matters (fDOM).

DOC concentrations greater than 5 mg/L will complicate water treatment and may result in disinfection by-products and water with less than 2 mg/L of DOC tend to be easily treated for disinfection by-products and do not increase finished water colour.

WHY DISSOLVED ORGANIC MATTERS MUST BE MONITORED?

Dissolved organic matter (DOM) does not pose health risk itself but may become potentially harmful when in combination with other aspects of water.

DOM reacts with disinfectants such as chlorine to form potentially carcinogenic byproducts called trihalomethanes. Trihalomethanes may have long-term effects on health and they should be considered when chlorinating drinking water high in DOM.

DOM interacts with organic/inorganic contaminants and affects their transport, stability and bioavailability. Moreover, most pesticide models require DOM as one of the main parameter inputs. DOM can also promote the growth of microorganisms by providing a food source.

Organic material in water can cause aesthetic problems such as an unpleasant taste, odour and colour.

Onsite installation for DOM monitoring during May 2015 to May 2016 (Location: Estonia)

Fluo Imager Compact
Fluo Imager Compact Image

Fluo-Imager™ is a multipurpose spectral analyser aimed at the express detection and identification of organic compounds in liquid samples. Its operation is based on the techniques of spectral fluorescence signatures (SFS) and pattern recognition. With these techniques different compounds in a mixture can be identified and quantified without the physical separation of individual substances in a sample.

Fluo-Imager™ is capable of performing both absorption spectra measurements and capture SFS simultaneously.


Features

  • Combined Fluorescence & Absorption
  • Measurements
  • Purpose-Built SFS Library
  • Multi-Parameter Detection & Identification
  • Continuous Background Correction
  • No Chemicals Required

Spectral Fluorescence Signatures

The principle of SFS is based on the measuring of the fluorescence intensity of a sample at different excitation and emission wavelengths. The intensity of light induced fluorescence as a function of excitation and emission wavelengths constitutes a 3-dimensional fluorescence matrix of the sample. Such matrix is called the Spectral Fluorescence Signature.

Since various chemical substances have different characteristic excitation and emission spectra of fluorescence, they typically produce different spectral patterns in SFS, which are used for substance identification. The intensity of fluorescence serves as a measure of substance quantity.


Fluo-Imager™ detects:

  • Light oil
  • Medium Oil
  • PAH - Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons
  • DOM - Colored Dissolved Organic Matter
  • Chlorophyll
  • Carotenoids
  • Phycoerythrin
  • Phycocyanin
  • BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylene) and other fluorescent compounds

How ROW Works The Science To detect oil slicks as thin as a single micron from up to 10m above the water, ROW pulses a UV beam at the surface and excites any oil molecules in the target area. Using oil’s native fluorescence, ROW identifies tell-tale substances and alerts the site operator. After 20 years of developing remote-sensing systems we’ve probably mastered the technology better than anyone else.

Full Autonomy In most cases, ROW will operate on wired power and data lines. However, for full autonomy in hard-to-reach locations, optional solar panels and wireless setups are available.

Industry Leading Sensitivity - 1m Advanced software algorithms are calibrated to detect oil down to single-micron layers and minimize false alarms.

Monthly fuel exchange test results over the past decade from ASTM and the Energy Institute have demonstrated that the IQT™ combustion pressure recovery ignition delay is highly correlated to the ASTM D613 cetane number (CN). The Test Method can accurately measure the ignition delay of a wide range of middle distillate fuels over the entire cetane number scale including conventional diesel fuels, oil sands-based, biodiesel, refinery streams, specialty fuels, as well as fuels with nitrate-based and oxygenate-based cetane improver additives.

Based on a model developed from well characterized ASTM NEG fuel remnants (see reference 1), the IQT™ results are displayed in real time in ignition delay and derived cetane number (DCN) formats. The test sequence is completely automated and is performed in under 20 minutes (including sample and system preparation). Test results and statistical analysis are printed at the end of each test, permitting the operator to quickly read the computerevaluation of test validity.

Pipeline Corrosion Tracking Coupons & Analyzers
CORROSION COUPONS
CORROSION COUPONS Image

Accurate monitoring of corrosion rates in any environment is critical when viewed in terms of the maintenance and repair costs associated with corrosion and material failure. Test coupons provide an inexpensive means of on-line monitoring that will allow you to effectively measure the corrosivity within your system. By observing the mils-per-year corrosion rate of an exposed coupon, valuable information can be provided regarding the material’s life expectancy. Biolab can make coupons in any size, shape, or material you need. Coupons can be stenciled with alloy and sequence numbers for proper identification. Mill test reports, identifying element compositions of materials used, are provided on all orders. The following coupons are four of the most commonly used in corrosion testing.


 


Finishes

  • Mill - finished as produced from mill.
  • Glass Bead - blasted with fine glass beads to remove mill scale.
  • 120 Grit - fine finish using a 120 grit belt. Commonly used in corrosion tests, such as pitting studies, where smooth surface finish is desired. Finishes up to 600 grit (extremely fine) can be provided.
  • Double Disc Ground - extra fine finish using an abrasive disc that leaves minimal residue. Excellent for studies where surface finish is critical. Can produce 16-32 RMS finishes on common steels and 8 RMS on carbide steels.

Bypass Piping Systems

We provide conventional or custom-designed bypass systems for on-line corrosion monitoring. Commonly used in the industrial water treatment industry to determine the corrosive properties of potable or cooling water, these systems are available in PVC, carbon and stainless steels, and other materials.

Bypass systems are easily installed to your existing piping. Normally, all you need is a 1” NPT male fitting on which to attach the bypass. Standard bypass systems come equipped with 4 pipe plug assemblies, 4 pre-weighed mild steel coupons, and a 5-gpm flow control valve.


Adjustable Coupon Holders

Low Pressure or Hand Insertable systems can be used for pressures up to 125 psi. This assembly is commonly used in the water treating industry for coupon insertion through a full port valve. An example of this is in a municipal water pumping station, where leakage during withdrawal of the test coupon would not be critical.

 

Retractable Coupon Holders

Packing Gland systems are used in more demanding environments, where ratings up to 1,500 psi are required and leakage is prohibited. These systems do not require line (process) shutdown to insert or withdraw coupons. The assembly is used for coupon insertion through at least a 1” full port valve. A safety chain is provided to prevent accidental ejection.


Retrievable Coupon Holders

These coupon holders are used with High Pressure Access Systems where pressure ratings up to 3,600 psi are required.

   
WELDED COUPONS
WELDED COUPONS Image

Corrosion rates can vary between welded and non-welded metals, therefore it is advisable to study the behavior of both conditions. Studies involve examination of the parent material, the heat affected zone, the weld metal, and the interfaces between all metals involved. The surface effects produced by welding, heat-tint formation or oxidation, fluxing action of slag, and the deliquescence of slag can be important factors in the corrosion behavior of metals.

Ideally, the coupon used should be the same thickness and welded with the same welding process as the material used in the production equipment. Usually this is not practical so a representative sample must be studied.

Typical welding techniques used are Shielded Metal Arc (SMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc (GTAW), and Gas Metal Arc (GMAW). Specimens are ground smooth after welding, unless otherwise specified, so as to provide a uniform surface for microscopic investigation.


Welded coupons can be prepared with or without the use of filler metal. The autogenous weld is prepared without the use of filler metal. This type of weld is the most economical method. Autogenous welds are commonly used to evaluate corrosion rates of welded materials and the usage of these materials in corrosive environments. An autogenous weld is produced by GTAW and can be used to test material weldability and gas shield usage, and to set welding parameters.
Autogenous Weld Coupon 1. 120 grit standard finish unless otherwise specified. 2. 1/8” nominal thickness. 3. Standard weld is autogenous weld across end (A.W.A.E.). Sanded after weld.
STRESSED COUPONS
STRESSED COUPONS Image
Stress corrosion cracking occurs when tensile stress combines with a corrosive environment to attack a material. Testing for this type of corrosion is critical in storage tanks, pressure piping, and vessels commonly used in chemical processing plants and petrochemical refineries. Biolab can make your stressed samples in accordance with all ASTM standards including G30, G38, G39, and G58 or to your custom specifications.
TEST RACKS
TEST RACKS Image

Biolab offers test racks used to mount coupons and secure them directly to operating equipment or within a process system. Test racks make it easy to evaluate how corrosion would effect differing alloys and material finishes under identical conditions. Rack usage helps eliminate coupon loss which might occur if samples were individually placed in a process flow.

Racks can be fabricated to meet your requirements for material and size. Typical racks are flat bar racks, spool racks, and pipeline insertion racks. Other racks include angle bar racks and outdoor exposure racks. A variety of insulators, washers, and spacers used to isolate coupons can also be ordered separately.


Guidelines for Supporting Specimens

Corrosive behavior of materials subjected to immersion, partial immersion, or vapor phase can have great variance. For this reason, specimens to be tested should be properly positioned. There are several important points to be considered when supporting specimens for exposure:

  • Each specimen location should be identified by sketch and recorded.
  • The corrosive media should have access to the coupons.
  • The test rack should have adequate corrosion resistance to endure the test.
  • Specimens should be electrically isolated from other metals unless galvanic effects are being studied.
  • Specimens should be located in easily accessible areas.

INSULATORS, WASHERS & SPACERS
INSULATORS, WASHERS & SPACERS Image
Biolab makes a variety of insulators, washers, and spacers used to isolate test specimens. We also make insulator kits (R5102) that contain an assortment of washers, screws, nuts, and stems. These kits are designed for field use when a variety of insulators are needed. The chart shown here is a general guide to material applications. Call for recommendations on use in hazardous or severe environments.
