Parafuel - NIR Asphaltene Analyzer

Identify Asphaltene Precipitation Quickly and Easily

ParaFuel Asphaltene Analyzers are near-infrared (NIR) optical analyzers designed for determination of the asphaltene deposition point quickly, easily and accurately. The ParaFuel provides an automated sampling process with single button operation. Other key Crude Oil properties can be measured as well. Near-infared asphaltene analysis has inherent advantages of being fast & non-destructive and is a proven analysis technique. The savings in equipment cleaning and shutdown time can be tremendous.

LT-NIR products provide a significant return on investment by helping to prevent asphaltene associated downtime, increasing operating efficiency, and optimizing crude usage and blending. Furthermore, LT-NIR solutions are applied throughout the oil and fuels pipeline and value chain. Contact us today to learn more.
