Somewhere in the 1970’s, Paul Bruggeman moved from The Netherlands to Lauda in Germany. He started working together with Mr. Walter Herzog to develop laboratory instruments for testing physical properties of petroleum products according to ASTM methods. Instruments for tests such as atmospheric distillation, flash point, cloud & pour point, cold filter plugging point, viscosity, vapor pressure, etc.
In 2002, his new-found company ORBIS BV released the automatic distillation unit PAMSTILL, and many other innovative products in the following years.
At ORBIS, we design and manufacture instruments for physical properties testing. For tests that are typically carried out in the energy industry.
We love to find / design technical innovations to make our instruments more accurate, faster, smaller and easier to use.
