Renewable Chemicals for Industry

Make Informed Decisions with Trucent Lab Services

Too often, people think they know how to solve your problems before they’ve taken the time to fully understand them. But when they do that, they miss opportunities to learn valuable—even critical—information. And you’re left “flying blind.”

At Trucent, we know that you are the expert on your day-to-day challenges.  That’s why every Trucent solution begins with a conversation. Our engineers come out to your site (at no cost and with no obligation) to walk your entire process with you, sampling your fluids at every important stage along the way, and learning from your experience. 

Then we come back to our lab with our notes and your samples and design a custom solution that makes sense for your needs—not one built to some generic “best” spec, but instead the solution that’s best for your plant, your people, and your product.

Complete Performance Testing

Trucent Laboratory

After we’ve learned as much as possible from talking to you and walking your process, we learn as much more as we can in our lab. Using our proprietary analytical techniques, we deliver reliable, accurate information quickly—along with quality recommendations—so that you can act on that information as soon as possible to maximize your process performance.

The Trucent Laboratory provides complete analytical and performance testing for all industrial fluids (e.g., oil, lubes, coolants for numerous applications, etc.), as well as petroleum- and biological-based oil extraction development (i.e., corn oil extraction in ethanol production plants). Not only can we help you determine where problems have crept in, but we can also design workflows, equipment combinations, and processes that will help keep your processes running smoothly.
