IMS Laboratory provides a wide range of testing for Biodiesel and the raw materials used for Biodiesel production based on ASTM 6751 and EN 14214 or other specifically requested tests. The fast turnaround time in our lab of generally less than 3 working days is of great importance for the Biodiesel producers.
We have developed the original methodologies that allow us to analyze multiple raw materials used in Biodiesel production, such as vegetable oils, beef tallow, yellow grease, waste/recycled oils, etc. These methodologies provide important analytical capabilities that could be used for QC/QA purposes for production management of raw materials in the intermediate and final Biodiesel production.
Diesel Fuel Analysis – Spectrochemical Analysis
Fuel analysis has become a very important part of all maintenance and purchasing functions. The cost of diesel fuel, although expensive, is small when compared to the problems that may develop without the proper purchase specifications, verification of those specifications, handling, storage and distribution.
Generally speaking, most fuel is within the grade; however, on occasion a fuel delivery may be substandard. Fuel will also degrade and become contaminated in storage and transfer. It is almost impossible to retrace the sequence of events leading up to fuel problems unless an accurate record of the quality of the fuel is maintained. This can only be done by periodic laboratory analysis of the fuel.
The identification of the trace metals contained in an oil sample is of prime importance in Condition Monitoring. Typically, an Atomic Emission Spectrometer is used to identify common wear metals, contaminates, and inorganic additives found in lubricants. This analysis is typically rapid and inexpensive. Spectrochemical data is reported in parts per million.
IMS Analytical Laboratories is focused on analytical services for vegetable oils and fats. The methods are performed according to internationally-recognized standards as per ISO, AOCS, AOAC, FOSFA, BS and other published methods as required.
The accuracy of the analytical data is crucial for international commodity trading under FOSFA, COPA and other contracts. The accuracy and reliability of our results are of utmost importance to the good name and reputation of our Company and it is equally important to every client and party in each trade.
IMS Analytical Laboratories provides the technical analytical expertise and support services necessary to provide quality information to the client. For more information on services available through IMS Analytical Laboratories please contacts us directly.
