LAB EQUIPMENT

On-site laboratory instruments and capabilities include:

  • Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) – Measures wax melt point
  • Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) – Tests infrared wavelength to identify chemical composition
  • Autoviscometer – Tests kinematic viscosity
  • Brookfield Viscometer – Tests viscosity
  • Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) Machine – Detects trace elements
  • Karl Fischer Water Analyzer – Measures precise water content
  • Needle Penetrometer – Measures hardness and softness of waxes
  • Autotitrator – Measures acid and peroxide values
  • Particle Size Analyzer – Detects particle distribution and measures particle size
  • Densitometer – Measures density and specific gravity
  • Gas Chromatograph (GC) – Provides a fingerprint of a wax or wax blend
  • Lovibond Colorimeter – Measures color in natural waxes, including soy wax
  • Drop Melt Point Apparatus – Determines the melting point of a substance
