The Scoville hot sauce contest
The Scoville hot sauce contest ended in a shared number 1 position for Martin van Burgh, our CTO, and Jack Leeflang, our accountant. Starting with 50.000 Scoville units, they liberally applied 1.700.000 Scoville units of hot sauce to their chicken wings and lived to talk about it. It wasn’t until an hour later that they stopped sweating….
Dewpoint control – Integrated approach
Analytical Solutions and Products delivered a fully integrated dewpoint control system. This for an ammonia factory experiencing liquid condensation problems in their sample lines. ASaP has helped to provide the customer with a solution to solve and secure their analyzers from water condensation.
In top condition with Tony Waters
At ASaP we strive for perfection in our products. One aspect to achieve this high level of product quality is to keep our team’s knowledge and expertise in top condition. Who is better to keep us in top condition than Tony Waters? Our system design, service, sales, and R&D departments are trained in understanding the fundamentals of designing, building, and maintaining process analyzer sampling systems.
Hard work and enjoyment, exceeding expectations
For the ASaP team, it’s natural to strive for continual improvement, but this also means doing the right thing even when it’s sometimes the hard thing to do. The best reward we can wish for, is when the customer enjoys working with us. Below, an example is given after finalizing one of our successful LNG projects. Our whole team enjoys the fact that we exceeded expectations, which were very high to begin with.
Time is Money, Accuracy is Money, and ASaP’s LNG solutions secure both
So, minimize the time of the LNG carrier at a jetty and its voyage. With every BTU accurately measured, profits can be maximized by using ASaP’s LNG solutions.

Analyzer shelter performance monitoring – AIM for your success
In an analyzer shelter, different types of analyzers and sample systems are in operation. Because the analyzer performance is also depending on the performance of the sampling system, these parameters will also be acquired. There is a need for analyzer shelter performance monitoring and prediction of fouling of the sample system to prevent breakdown of the analyzers. Improvement of sample conditioning maintenance is necessary to increase uptime of the analyzers.
