ParaFuel Asphaltene Analyzer

LT Industries is now Verum Analytics

New name, new developments, building on 40 years of analytical knowledge.

Parafuel - NIR Asphaltene Analyzer

Identify Asphaltene Precipitation Quickly and Easily

The ParaFuel Asphaltene Analyzer is a fast, non-destructive, and is a proven analysis technique bringing tremendous savings to crude oil transporters and refineries.   The ParaFuel is a near-infrared (NIR) optical spectrometers designed for quickly and accurately determining the asphaltene deposition or precipitation point.  And testing is automated to a single button operation.

Reduce downtime associated with asphaltene build up and optimize blending ratios to improve operating margins. Furthermore, LT-NIR solutions are applied throughout the oil and fuels pipeline and value chain. Contact us today to learn more.
