The distinctiveness of oil refinery/processing byproducts inspection is due to complex multicomponent mixtures of substances that are heterogeneous in their chemical, component, phase composition and physicochemical (physicomechanical) properties. Each unit of transport container with petroleum byproducts must be marked with a stencil or stamp indelible with water and petroleum products. If the indicated inscription cannot be made on the transport container with petroleum byproducts, then a label shall be attached to the container or a label with this inscription shall be glued, containing the name of the oil product and the date of its manufacture. Transport labels are applied to the shipping container, characterizing the transport hazard of the cargo. Each batch of bypetroleum products must be accompanied by a quality document.

Accredited inspectors and laboratory technicians from CISS GROUP carry out oil refinery/processing byproducts inspection at any point of the supply chain.

Usually for determination of oil refinery/processing byproducts quality the following standard parameters are used: fractional composition, density, viscosity, average boiling point of oil fractions, water content, flash point and ignition temperature, unsaturated compounds, group chemical composition of bitumen, etc.

Photo and video report.

The inspector records each stage of the inspection with photos and videos. All such data contain the date and time of recorded stage of inspection. At the end of the oil refinery/processing byproducts inspection, CISS GROUP provides a detailed photo report of all stages of control and inspection.
