The petroleum products testing laboratory of the Expertise Center performs the control, comprehensive (within the scope of GOST, TU, ISO requirements), certification and arbitration tests of crude oil and petroleum products: automobile gasoline, diesel fuels, furnace oils, gas condensates, petroleum solvents, straight-run gasoline, oils of various applications, crude and commercial oil, residual oil, marine fuels, additives and admixes to engine fuels and oils. Tests are performed as per techniques of GOST, ASTM, ISO, EN.
The laboratory of “North-Western Expertise Center” LLC is accredited for technical competence and independence by the Federal Technical Control and Metrology Agency of Russia, is granted a right to carry out tests as per the Technical Regulations indexes and is acknowledged by the Russian Maritime Registry of Shipping.
The laboratory of “North-Western Expertise Center” LLC occupies the area of 240 m2, is equipped with the state-of-the-art testing equipment from the leading Russian and foreign manufacturers of laboratory equipment, including the spectral, atomic absorption, gas and liquid chromatographic complexes able to determine the hydrocarbon, oxygen-containing admixes and metal-containing additives used in production of automobile gasoline, as well as presence of mass concentrations of lead, aluminum, silicon, calcium, vanadium, etc. in fuels and lubricating materials. If necessary, use can be made of a chromato-mass-spectrometer during the research aimed at determination of hydrocarbon composition of petroleum product.
Tests on determination of residual fuel-oil straight distillation ability, including vacuum distillation, are carried out. The methods of automobile gasoline and Euro diesel fuel as per EN standards are mastered.
