The Jacam laboratory is a 7,000-square-foot facility that is staffed with highly experienced chemists and technicians.

We use state-of-the-art instrumentation for highly accurate analysis to properly identify problems in the oil and gas industry.

Our Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) removes any of the guesswork previously associated with solids analysis. Jacam is the only chemical company in the United States to utilize this highly sophisticated microscope to diagnose field problems.

Our laboratory works hand in hand with our field engineers to ensure fast diagnosis, which allows for faster product delivery.

Our research and development scientists are experts in the disciplines of surface, organic, polymer and analytical chemistry.


Laboratory Instrumentation & Analysis

Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometers  – Water analysis with DSAT report showing scaling tendency and saturation index. Also provides chemical residual analysis.

Scanning Electron Microscope – Solid scale analysis.

Centrifuge and Sulfur in Oil analyzer – Oil analysis including paraffin/asphaltene content, sulfur content, pour point and API gravity.

Coldfinger- Oil analysis that leads to a chemical recommendation about which chemical works best to prevent paraffin/asphaltene problems.

Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy (GC/MS) – Used for oil analysis and provides a Carbon-chain breakdown.

Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy (LC/MS) & High Performance Liquid Chromatography – Liquid analysis used for special projects.

Rotating Cylinder Electrode –  Assesses corrosion potential and determines which chemicals will provide the best protection.

Rotating Wheel – Helps provide chemical recommendations for corrosion protection.

PMAC Dynamic Scale Loop –Provides chemical recommendations to prevent scale formation and determines the minimum effective concentration of scale inhibitor.


Mobile Laboratory

Jacam has mobile laboratories that can be deployed anywhere in the continental United States. Our mobile labs give Jacam engineers the ability to provide fast and accurate analysis of wells on location. Jacam’s mobile laboratories are perfect for surveys or for any time our customers need results especially quickly.
