Range of services laboratory analyses

Dr. rer. nat. Torsten Burkholz


Laboratory analyses

All laboratory services for refrigeration technology from a single source. Whether stationary or mobile refrigeration technology, we have the right analysis methods for you:

  • Analysis of refrigerants and refrigerant mixtures as well as the evaluation regarding various standards (e. g. DIN 8960, AHRI 700, SAE J2776, etc.). You can find the order form here: German, English   
  • Examination of new and used refrigerating machine oils, you can find the order form here: German, English
  • Determination of physical, chemical, thermodynamic and electrical properties of refrigerants, lubricants and their mixtures
  • Characterization of fluids and materials for stationary and mobile refrigeration technology
  • Chemical-thermal conditioning methods and compatibility tests of components with refrigerant-oil mixtures

Our laboratory guarantees a maximum of flexibility and quality. We offer competent solutions for your analytical problems.

Requirements at the ILK

  • State-of-the-art measurement technology, including gas chromatographs (FID, WLD, mass detectors), microwave digestion system, ICP-OES, ion chromatography and much more.  
  • Unique testing and measuring equipment, partly from our own production
  • Development and evaluation of new test methods
  • Participation in standardization committees (e. g. DIN) and participation in new industry standards
  • Partial accreditation by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018
  • Many years of experience from research projects and industrial testing tasks

With our laboratory analytics you know more in all areas: Starting with the release of new oils and refrigerants or their mixtures via incoming goods inspection to the quality monitoring of your equipment, processes and products during operation.
