Wax Content/Carbon Distribution Number Using HTGC: We employ advanced HTGC methods to quantify wax content and analyze carbon distribution, offering valuable insights into the composition and properties of paraffin waxes. This analysis is vital for refining and modifying wax formulations to meet specific application requirements.

Wax Appearance Temperature Determination: Our laboratory utilizes precise methodologies to determine the wax appearance temperature of petroleum products, aiding in the assessment of flow assurance risks and the development of strategies to mitigate wax-related issues in pipelines and production systems.

Wax Inhibitor Testing: We conduct comprehensive testing of wax inhibitors using both the Cold Finger method and dynamic flow loop systems. These tests evaluate the effectiveness of wax inhibitors under controlled conditions, simulating real-world scenarios to ensure optimal performance in preventing wax deposition.

Wax Composition Identification: Our analytical services extend to the detailed identification of wax compositions, utilizing advanced techniques to understand the molecular structure and properties of waxes. This information is crucial for product development, quality control, and troubleshooting wax-related challenges.

Pour Point Test: The pour point test is conducted to determine the lowest temperature at which paraffin wax remains fluid. This test is essential for assessing the flow properties of waxes and wax-containing products under cold conditions.

Depressant (PPD) Evaluation: Our services include the testing and evaluation of pour point depressants (PPDs), which are additives used to improve the low-temperature flow properties of petroleum products. We assess the effectiveness of PPDs in reducing the pour point of waxes and oils, enhancing their usability in cold environments.

Paraffin Chemical Residue Testing: Benchmark Lab offers chemical residue testing for paraffin waxes, identifying and quantifying any undesirable chemical compounds that may affect product quality, safety, or compliance with regulations.
