Located in Acton, Massachusetts, PetroSpec is dedicated to the development of spectroscopic applications for petroleum analysis -in the laboratory, in the field and on-line. PetroSpec’s distinction is the ability to adapt sophisticated technology to economical, one-step analyzers for a variety of petroleum physical properties. Products manufactured by PetroSpec include the GS series for determination of octane, VOC emissions, oxygenates, benzene, aromatics, olefins, saturates and other properties in gasoline; the DT series for red dye and ASTM color in diesel fuel; the JT series for red dye and Saybolt color in aviation fuel; the JFT series for aromatics and other properties in aviation fuel and the CETANE 2000 analyzer for cetane number, cetane index, aromatics, and cetane improver analysis of diesel fuels. All of these properties are also available in on-line systems.
Located in Verson, France, in 1975, in the heart of the petrochemical industry, ISL is an ISO 9001 manufacturer of automatic and automated petroleum physical testing apparatus. This location was found to be an excellent proving ground for research and development of new instrumentation. By the late 1970’s, several quality instruments had been developed and were being marketed in Europe. The most famous of these new instruments was the CPP97, Automatic Cloud and Pour Point Analyzer. Introduced in the early 1980’s, the CPP97-6 revolutionized cold flow testing in that it could perform up to six tests automatically. Adding several new automatic instruments each year, ISL soon became a worldwide leader in automatic petroleum testing instrumentation. Design, marketing, service and support are all under the ISL roof, serving the world. Products manufactured by ISL include flash point, distillation, kinematic viscosity, cold behavior, vapor pressure, softening point, Noack volatility and more.
