ParaFuel Crude Oil Analyzer

LT Industries is now Verum Analytics

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

ParaFuel - NIR Crude Oil and Fuels Analysis System

Online, Real Time Analysis of Crude Distillation Units, Blending and More

ParaFuel Crude Oil and Fuel analyzers are multi-channel process analyzers that allow for in-process, real time determination of chemical and physical properties. The ParaFuel provides a complete measurement solution for the Crude Oil and Petroleum Refining process. They are designed for use in both laboratory and On-Line/In-process analysis of crude oil properties. Measure a wide range of crude feed and fractional distillation product parameters.

Verum Analytics’ NIR Crude Oil analysis system is built to provide the best price/performance value in the NIR field. The ParaFuel also performs many other fuel analysis of downstream products. It’s small, fast and inexpensive — and can be used for developing calibration libraries for a wide range of Fuel and Crude Oil properties. The ParaFuel also includes a patented system to assure seamless transfers from the laboratory to the process!

The process analytics and control that the ParaFuel Crude Analyzer provides CDU’s, blending and related operations allows for increases in efficiency that will save your plant significant time and money. Integrate the 8 or 20 channel multiplexer with your analyzer and your one ParaFuel spectrometer can monitor many measurement points. Fiber optic cables connect the analyzer to the various feed and product analysis points, providing easy integration and extensive expansion capabilities.
