Thermo Fisher Scientific Offers Rheological Solution for the Petrochemical Industry
Product News Dec 12, 2008
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced a comprehensive rheology portfolio for the petrochemical industry that enables analyses of crude oil through refined products, such as bitumen.
The RheoScope module for the Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS rheometer platform enables simultaneous measurements of rheological characteristics and structural formations. This capability allows users to learn more about crystal growth in crude oil, also known as “waxing,” to help them optimize the flow of crude oil through pipelines.
The application-oriented measuring cells and geometries enable petrochemical engineers to measure the rheological properties of bitumen or perform tribological tests on oil and lubricants.
