Case Study: CCIC Singapore trusts Hitachi analyzers for their sulfur testing requirements

“12 years and three LAB-Xs later, we were confident to purchase the LAB-X5000 after its launch in 2018”

China Certification & Inspection Group (CCIC) is an independent third-party certification and inspection organization with about 300 offices and 200 cooperative labs in over 20 countries worldwide. The lab based in Singapore provides testing and inspection services to local oil and gas, marine and metals organisations. Crucially, clients rely on CCIC for sulfur testing to ensure their oil samples meet stringent global sulfur limits.

LAB-X5000 for compliance with confidence

Singapore is heavily invested in the oil industry and has the world’s largest bunkering port. This means that CCIC needed an analyzer that gives accurate results fast, to enable them to cope with their high level of throughput. They were already familiar with the LAB-X range of instruments and were using two LAB-X analyzers, but as their business grew and standards got tighter, they needed more capacity and the new LAB-X5000 fitted the bill perfectly.

X-MET8000 up to the challenge of IMO 2020

As providers of testing services to the marine industry, CCIC will need to help their customers comply with the new IMO 2020 regulations. A Hitachi X-MET8000 handheld XRF analyzer was the perfect solution as it allows them to do on-board testing for their customers, and complies with ASTM D4294, ISO 8754 and IP 336 sulfur test methods.

You can read the whole story in this case study, where Mr Lu Kim Sun, Deputy General Manager of CCIC Singapore, explains why they chose Hitachi analyzers for their business.
