Jurong Aromatics, a Singapore-based provider of aromatics and oil products, has awarded a contract to PAC to provide lab instruments for its new complex on Jurong Island, Singapore.

"The plant, which is expected to open in 2014, will process 4.5 million tonnes per year (MTPA) of condensate feedstock."

The instruments for petroleum testing application (gas chromatography, elemental and physical properties) include Antek MultiTek, which combines testing for sulfur, nitrogen and halides, and Herzog OptiDist, which provides accurate distillation analysis with an easy-to-use automated system.

JAC will also receive PAC's Analytical Controls (AC) instruments, namely Reformulyzer, SIMDIS, Hi-Speed RGA and numerous custom-built GC solutions.

The plant, which is expected to open in 2014, will process 4.5 million tonnes per year (MTPA) of condensate feedstock and produce 1.44MTPA of aromatics.

PAC president Tim Winfrey said the company is confident that the numerous products added to the site will aid JAC in production and profitability.

"We are excited to be working with JAC as they open this new major aromatics complex," Winfrey added.

PAC provides advanced analytical instruments to various industries, including petrochemical, refinery, biofuels, environmental, food and beverage and pharmaceutical.
