Pricing is Dependent Upon Several Factors...

The costs for various measurements are dependent upon several factors such as temperature, pressure ranges, hazardous nature of chemicals, cost of chemicals, disposal of chemicals, difficulty of analyses, and complexity of the measurements themselves. Once we have received the necessary information describing your data needs, we will provide a quotation for the work.

Questions about specific problems can probably be best answered by contacting us. Whenever possible a project can be completed in a three-month period. Faster service can also be provided by assigning a preferred two-month priority or express one-month priority. In these cases a surcharge is added for the faster service. Data is normally held confidential, if desired, for five to ten years. The confidentiality period can be extended to twenty years with a surcharge. Wiltec reserves the right to publish the measured data in the open literature after the confidentiality period has expired. An appropriate representative of your company would be contacted before we proceed with publication efforts. Only the measured data will be published. Any information concerning your business or processes is permanently and strictly confidential.

Research Expertise

It is often the case that data is needed at extreme conditions of temperature and pressure, or that there are other situations which make measurements difficult, such as problems of charging solid compounds to a cell, handling of toxic or corrosive substances, or performing measurements under conditions where chemical reactions occur. For this reason we customize our experimental apparatuses and methods for each project in order to obtain accurate and reliable data. The actual apparatus used is often constructed specifically for a given project. However, we find that there are certain aspects of an apparatus which remain more or less the same from one project to the next. These are the peripheral devices for measuring or controlling pressure, temperature, flow rates, and devices for charging and analyzing cell components.

Our experience has taught us that the most common sources of error in experimental measurements occur in sampling or analysis. We have had enough experience to generally know what methods work and what methods give poor results. If at all possible, the analyses are performed as the measurements are being made; thus, sampling or other problems can be resolved while the run is in progress.
