Thar Installs 1st SFC PetroAnalyzer System for ASTM Methods.
Additionally, Thar shipped another unit for analyzing both aromatics in diesel fuels and olefins in gasoline to China. Like ASTM Method 5186, ASTM Method 6550 also specifies the use of supercritical CO2 as the mobile phase and an FID detector.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) mandated in 2002 that ASTM Methods 5186 and 6550 must be used to analyze their respective toxins. Therefore, Thar plans to introduce a new PetroAnalyzer instrument into a California demonstration laboratory later in 2007.
"The PetroAnalyzer is our first foray into the petrochemical market and we look forward to providing the same high quality products and rapid support that we provide to the pharmaceutical industry," said Todd Palcic, Vice President of Thar Instruments. "In our minds, all customers should be reference customers. Now we have our first reference customers for our latest product and we look forward to adding more."
