Petrocon Starts Global Marine Fuel Oil Analysis Service — Offer Brochure

Petrocon Marine and Industrial Chemical Corp. has announced the initiation of a complete fuel oil laboratory analysis service.

The service is available through the company's offices and laboratories in Brooklyn, N.Y. and Piraeus, Greece.

During the past 14 months, both laboratories have undergone extensive expansion programs acquiring atomic spectrophometers, sulfur determinators, and a host of related equipment. The expanded facilities offer complete analysis of virtually all types of fuel and lube oils in addition to their water analysis services. All test results are usually forwarded to clients within 24 hours of receiving samples at either facility.

Pick-up service of samples is arranged through the company's agents at ports on the U.S.

Atlantic, Gulf and West Coasts, Europe, and the Mediterranean.

Petrocon also supplies preaddressed sample mailer kits to each vessel under service contract for use at ports where pickup service may not be available.

Based upon analysis results, Petrocon can offer recommendations to eliminate or reduce the adverse effects of vanadium, sulfur, water, or other contaminants found in fuel oils. Vessels under this new service are supplied with a dosage chart detailing what, if any, measures need be taken, depending upon what level of contaminants their fuel oil may contain.
