Choice Analytical, Inc. Announces New ASTM method D8148-17 for Spectroscopic Determination of Haze in Fuels.


With the support of industry leaders and years of development, Choice Analytical is proud to announce the achievement of a major milestone. Receiving the ASTM method D8148-17 for Spectroscopic Determination of Haze in Fuels will allow the industry to quickly move past the antiquated subjective visual technique which producers and fuel transporters have been struggling with for decades. By providing both the Instrumental Haze Number (IHN) as well as the proprietary Haze Clarity Index (HCI) which allows much greater specificity and a more detailed fuel rating scale than the visual method. The Clarity Choice hz and the Color Choice hz will provide fuel producers, users and transporters a much greater determination of a fuels clarity and quality than ever before.

In addition to the Clarity Choice hz, Choice Analytical Inc. also combines the new Haze method with ASTM, Saybolt and Platinum Cobalt/APHA Color. The Color Choice hz is the only instrument in the industry that complies with D8148-17, provides Haze Clarity Index (HCI) along with ASTM D6045 for Saybolt and ASTM color as well as ASTM D5386 for Platinum Cobalt/APHA color.

Petra MAX delivers D4294 sulfur analysis in addition to 12 elements from P to Zn, for rapid monitoring of critical elements like Ca, Fe, K, Ni, and V at sub-ppm levels. Petra MAX offers advanced precision with HDXRF, advanced reliability, and advanced software and data management. Petroleum laboratories depend on reliable, robust analytical solutions for their fast-paced environment. Petra MAX complies with ASTM D4294 and ISO 8754 methods for sulfur analysis of hydrocarbons like crude oil, diesel, gasoline, jet fuel, and lubricants.



For those customers interested in measuring sulfur in gasoline, diesel,crude oil, VGO and a wide range of products, the XOS Combo D7039/D2622 analyzer provides a cost effective instrument meeting the specification requirements for certification while offering detection ranges far exceeding instruments costing three times as much.

The Clora Bench-Top analyzer is a compact Chlorine analyzer, deisgned for use with liquid hyrocarbons such as aromatics, distillates, heavy fuels and crude oils, as well as aqueous solutions. The analyzer delivers unprecedented accuracy and precision for petroleum and petrochemical applications where ease-of-use, reliability and measurement speed are critical. Plug it in and measure. Results with one touch. Unrivaled precision.

Phase Technology does it again – another "first" for the petroleum industry. Phase Technology's new JFA-70Xi jet fuel analyzer is the world's first and only instrument that performs three crucial tests in one unit—freeze point, viscosity and density. And, it does it all in less than 15 minutes! The JFA-70Xi features a new, side loaded automatic sample injection port. There's no longer a need to manually pipette. The analyzer always draws the precise amount of sample as required by the ASTM method. The JFA is completely self-cleaning, without the need of solvents. Save time and hassle of cleaning, and avoid any risk of damage to the sample cup.

Phase Technology's 70Xi cold flow properties analyzer significantly increases lab productivity and improves profitability by providing quick, precise results. The 70Xi analyzer helps minimize giveaway and ensure that released product is on spec. Phase Technology users can be confident that their test results accurately meet and comply with ASTM International standards for pour, cloud and freeze point: ASTM D5949, D5773 and D5972. The PSA-70Xi is the world's only analyzer that performs pour, cloud and freeze point in one unit. And, it's the only analyzer that has factual, valid ASTM methods for all three methods.

High performance sample handling, precise sample injection, and built-in automatic cleaning — the 70Xi Autosampler Analyzer System gives you a full range of robust, productivity-boosting features that eliminate human error and decrease lab analysis time. Phase Technology's 70Xi Autosampler Analyzer Systems give you unmatched versatility and performance as they provide unattended operation for round-the-clock sample analysis. The 70Xi's 48-station autosampler lets lab personnel run multiple samples without the need to individually pipette, set and verify analyzer options or wait for test results.
