Offering innovative solutions requires efficient and effective research and development as well as extensive technical support. Our own laboratories at our production sites play an important role in ensuring we deliver high-quality products.
OUR EMPLOYEES IN THE LABORATORIES ARE PRODUCT SUPERVISORS AND QUALITY ASSURERS
The Haltermann Carless laboratories play a major role in continuously checking and confirming our quality promise to our customers. The entire production process, starting with the selection of raw materials, through processing, storage and delivery, is closely monitored. We have three laboratory locations worldwide, including sites in Hamburg and Speyer (Germany), as well as Harwich in the UK. The laboratories are equipped with modern facilities and offer a wide range of analytical options.
For example, the Haltermann Carless laboratories have modern measuring equipment for measuring density, flash and aniline points, cold flow behaviour (e.g. pour point, CFPP), distillation profiles and vapour pressure.
In addition, there is an extensive range of manual equipment and wet chemical techniques that allow us to demonstrate compliance with ASTM and IP procedures.
