NIRS for optimizing refinery processes

No matter whether you determine the alkene, aromatic, benzene, or FAME content, density, viscosity, Reid vapor pressure, or cetane and octane number, NIRS is the answer – along the entire production chain.


1Degree of density according to the American Petroleum Institute (API)

2True Boiling Point distillation

3Paraffins, Isoparaffins, Aromatics, Naphthenes, or Olefins (alkenes)

4Boiling behavior according to ASTM D 86: verification by NIRS

5Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons

6Cold Filter Plugging Point

7Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME)

8Benzene, Toluene, Xylene
