Making a Difference: Metrohm USA’s Involvement with the ASTM Brings Innovation to the Petroleum Industry

Dec 05 2016 Comments 0

Metrohm USA’s continued efforts to partner with the ASTM supports the quality, distribution and delivery of petroleum products. As a member of ASTM’s largest committee D02, the company helps develop test methods that ensure the safety of gasoline, diesel fuel, motor oil and liquid propane.

Larry Tucker, Vice President of Business Development at Metrohm USA, leads the company’s efforts to work with the scientific community to solve common industry problems. He was recently featured as the committee’s expert in an article the ASTM published on fuel quality1. “Innovation is key to ensure what goes into our gas tanks is safe and reliable. The needs of the industry are always changing and Metrohm USA is proud to work with the ASTM to develop the newest methods,” says Tucker.

Most recently, Larry has helped complete a significant new test method for crude- and shale-oil acidity (ASTM D8045) that will update and overcome the limitations of longtime ASTM test standard D664. The ASTM’s new method will be featured in Metrohm’s upcoming webinar “Innovative Titration for Competitive Refining Operations”.

Future projects include anti-corrosion research for a new method to measure organic halides in crude.
