All test equipment used to perform laboratory measurements is subject to programmed calibration and maintenance in accordance with documented procedures. We employee the JIRA management system that helps us stay on top of what’s happening, define and manage processes, and ensure task ownership and completion.

Color Spectrophotometer

Transmission measurements of liquid samples to measure color in a variety of applications.

Flash Point Tester

Pensky-Martens closed-cup apparatus for measuring flash point of liquids.

Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FT-IR)

FT-IR can be used to confirm the presence of known and unknown materials, or determine the quality or consistency of a sample or the amount of components in a mixture.

Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS)

GC-MS combines the features of gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify components of complex mixtures. It can be used for detecting organic impurities in fluids which aids in design, maintenance, and troubleshooting.

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)

High-performance liquid chromatography is a technique used to separate, identify, and quantify the components in a mixture.

High Pressure Differential Scanning Calorimeter (HP DSC)

HP DSC measurements can be conducted under very high pressure, up to 18,000 psi. It can be used to measure the crystallization of salts under pressure (PCT and gas hydrate formation/dissociation).

High Pressure High Temperature Rheometer

Viscometer for measuring fluid rheology and stability up to 30,000 psi and 500°F.

Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometer (ICP)

ICP is used to determine trace elements in a variety of matrices.

Ion Chromatography (IC)

Ion Chromatography is used to identify and quantify cations and anions in variety of matrices.

Laser Diffraction Particle Size Analyzer (PSA)

PSA determines the size and distribution of particulate solids in solid or liquid matrices.

Reaction Calorimeter

Reaction calorimeter can be used for basic reaction calorimetry as well as investigating crystallization of salts under controlled atmospheric conditions (TCT).

Return Permeability Tester

Equipment for quantifying fluid formation damage potential.

Thermal Gravimetric Analysis & Differential Scanning Calorimeter (TGA/DSC)

TGA/DSC can be used to obtain thermal critical points like phase changes, degradation, enthalpy, specific heat or glass transition temperature of substances.

Total Organic Carbon (TOC)

TOC quantifies the amount of organic carbon in a variety of matrices. TIG instrumentation is unique in affording the ability to analyze highly concentrated inorganic salt solutions.

X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD)

XRD can be used to determine the mineral composition of cores, cuttings, and ores, identification of scales, common by-products, and unknown materials.
