The ParaFuel™ NIR Process analyzer from LT Industries provides comprehensive inline analysis of Diesel, Gasoline, Jet Fuel, Kerosene, Crude Oil, Blending components and Blended Fuels for a wide range of critical properties including Octane, Distillation Points or RVP. The analyzer is also available in a benchtop version designed to improve efficiency when testing in laboratories.
Validate Fuel and Crude Oil Quality
With the ParaFuel™ analyzer, accurate measurement of the properties of petrochemical products and crude oils is easy. Whatever the analytical need – inspection of crude oil or finished products, inline property measurements, or validating shipments – the ParaFuel™ can do the job. The optical analysis technique allows for easy integration and rapid inline measurement. ParaFuel™ Process Systems measures key chemical and physical properties rapidly and accurately directly in process, to monitor changing process conditions in real time and to adjust as necessary. The simple test procedure allows for greater experimental repeatability — and it does not require special operator skills. Inline Testing of up to 20 measuring points With the capability to measure 20 points with a single analyzer, you can validate quality and performance at all stages — from crude samples at the well to downstream refining. Improve your process knowledge and control.
Measure in process or in the laboratory
The ParaFuel™ Process Analyzer comes complete with probes and flow cells built to suit your measurement needs. They are available in a variety of lengths, configurations and materials depending on your measurement requirements. High pressure and temperature sampling probes can withstand the conditions associated with oil production and refining. Instruments are designed for direct integration into existing control systems via the LTBus automation & communication software. The ParaFuel™ Analyzer can communicate directly via standard protocols such as Modbus and 4-20mA. The ParaFuel™ Benchtop System provides the same high quality measurements as the process system.
Automated, nondestructive inline analysis, completed within seconds. Results sent to your DCS, PLC, or LIMS.
