Apex Asphaltene Analyzer

Apex - NIR Asphaltene Analyzer

Identify Asphaltene Precipitation Quickly and Easily

The Apex Asphaltene Analyzer is a fast, non-destructive, and is a proven analysis technique bringing tremendous savings to crude oil transporters and refineries.   The Apex 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, Verum Analytics’ solutions are applied throughout the oil and fuels pipeline and value chain. Contact us today to learn more.
