ARTICLE: Total Cost Of Analysis in Petroleum Labs by European Lab Services
It seems contradictory, though it is the undeniable truth. While the importance of petroleum analysis increases, purchasing budgets have downsized over the last few years and lab managers have to reflect about how to purchase in a cost-effective way. This mindset goes way beyond exploring the market in search of the best prices. It is all about spreading out the cost over the next following years of usage. A well-known concept as Total Cost Of Ownership also takes multiple other parameters in account: maintenance costs, cost of downtime, energy consumption, etc.
PAC update: New OptiFlash COC, OptiFPP and Phase Technology

CTR3000: Multi-functional precision thermometer
The model CTR3000 precision thermometer provides a complete measurement and control interface for users wishing to make high-accuracy temperature measurements or calibrate thermometers. It supports a wide range of thermometer types including 25 Ω SPRTs, 100 Ω PRTs, thermistors and thermocouples.
Microjet: The proof that an autoclave can be compact and fast
The autoclave Microjet thermal energy required for sterilization is delivered directly to the medium. Microwaves are the energy source, which makes the heating occurs instantly and uniformly throughout the volume of the liquid. In comparison with the traditional steam autoclave, sterilization takes 5 times less time, while the exposure to high temperatures is very short (60-90 seconds). This minimises the decomposition of microbiological medium.

New Product Release: High Pressure In-Line Process Viscometer Sensor
PAC-Cambridge Viscosity releases new high pressure in-line process viscometer sensor. The new Class 1, Div. 1 certified SPC-302 inline sensor is made of Inconel 718 to handle the high pressures and corrosive environments found in the petroleum and chemical industries. The sensor has a 1.25” (31.75 mm) NPT thread to be easily installed into 2”-6” process pipelines or tanks. The SPC-302 measures less than 6 inches which requires minimal clearance for tight locations. Paired with either the ViscoPro 2000 or ViscoPro2100 electronics, is ideal for hazardous area classifications.
