Originally established in 1931, Herzog has a comprehensive line of laboratory instruments for testing atmospheric and vacuum distillation, flash point, vapor pressure, bitumen properties, cold flow properties, viscosity and other physical properties. Herzog pioneered efforts to automate traditional manual methods of testing in order to save manpower and eliminate user errors. Herzog also took the lead in efforts to develop and standardize new, alternative lab methods where the hallmarks were low sample volume requirements, achieving faster results, higher precision in analysis and greater ease of use by operators with lower general skill levels.
CID 510 - Cetane Ignition Delay
Herzog by PAC pioneered the Cetane Ignition Delay 510 instrument, a unique technology that is proven to provide the best precision in the market for determining the Derived Cetane Number of all types of diesel fuel, biodiesel, FAME, HVO, BTL, and GTL. It is a compact, easy to use, and fully automated analyzer, that offers excellent return on investment, and is in compliance with today’s safety requirements.
Accurate analysis of Derived Cetane Number (DCN) is an important tool for diesel and biodiesel fuel blenders and refineries to maintain fuel consistency and quality. Existing technologies, such as CFR Engine and CVCC methods, do not meet present market requirements with their high investment and operational cost, difficult operation, and poor system performance.
The CID 510 is in perfect correlation to ASTM D613, EN 16715, ISO 5165, IP 41, IP 615 and GOST R 58440. The patented test method ASTM D7668 is approved as standard and officially listed in diesel specifications: ASTM D975, ASTM D6751, ASTM D7467, EN 590 and GOST R 52368.
OptiFlash - Pensky Martens

The OptiFlash is fully compliant with leading global standards such as: ASTM D56 (Tag) and EN ISO 13736 & IP 170 (Abel).
OptiFlash Cleveland Open Cup
Optiflash Cleveland Open Cup accurately detects flash point up to 400°C for petroleum products, lube oil, gear oil, food & beverages, chemicals, and fluxed bitumen. OptiFlash CoC is fully compliant with leading global standards. Its automatic damper covers the cup to reduce vapor escape and extinguish possible fires.
OptiFlash Small Scale
Safe and accurate flash point determination for low volume samples. The new Small Scale Flash Point Analyzer completes PACs Herzog OptiFlash family. The Optiflash accurately detects flashpoint from -30°C up to 300°C for petroleum products, biodiesels, solvents, chemicals, paint varnishes, fluxed bitumen and food and beverages.
ASTM D3828, ASTM D3278, ASTM D7236, ISO 3679, ISO 3680, IP523, IP524, IP534
OptiDist: Atmospheric Distillation
OptiDist is the benchmark in atmospheric distillation testing offering the highest level of precision. Its a state-of-the-art optimal solution for performing atmospheric distillation, featuring easy to use, one button operation, and unparalleled versatility. Its minimal footprint saves valuable lab space, installation is easy, and the OptiDist offers a very low cost of ownership. The testing and results are in full compliance with all atmospheric distillation methods like ASTM D86.
HVP 972: Vapor Pressure
Herzog's HVP 972 is the modern analytical instrument designed for accurate determination of vapor pressure of both automotive and aviation gasoline, turbine fuels, other light distillate petroleum products, hydrocarbon solvents and chemical compounds. The Herzog HVP 972 provides quick, accurate results of vapor pressure up to 1,000 kPa (145 psi) within a temperature range of 0° to 100°C. Significantly increase productivity with perfect repeatability and reproducibility through the power of complete automation.
HVM 472: Multirange Viscometer
The Herzog Multi-Range Viscometer HVM 472 determines direct kinematic viscosity of transparent and opaque liquids fully automated. The easy to operate viscometer includes 2 multi-range capillaries with 100 fold measuring range, requires only 18 ml, and delivers precise results. Its auto sampler offers truly continuous operation, spent sample vials automatically discharge, allowing new samples to be added at any time. For rapid analysis within viscosity range of 0.5 to 600mm2/s, the HVM 472 offers the smart alternative to run samples using 20-fold range Fast Run (FR) capillaries. The HVM 472 shows excellent precision and accuracy in full compliance with ASTM D445.
HDV 632: Vacuum Distillation
The HDV 632 is a fully automated Vacuum Distillation Analyzer, which offers highest flexibility for the user. It can measure samples up to 650C AET. Choose ASTM D1160 or define and save your own custom programs. Naturally, you can add, delete, and revise custom tests as your products and test needs evolve. The HDV 632 controls temperature, distillation rate, and pressure with microprocessor precision. Volume measurements are made with digital accuracy, and test program selection is a simple “point and click” operation. Choose from an extensive library of built-in programs or your own predefined tests.
The HDV 632 incorporates everything needed for fully automated distillation testing, yet uses only 0.33 square meters (3.25 sq. ft.) of bench space. In fact, it even features built-in refrigeration systems one for the cold trap plus a heater/cooler for the condenser bath there is no need to run hoses to an external water supply or chiller system.
