Scientific Instrumentation Reseller Petroservicios Industriales Joins ASD Reseller Team

BOULDER, Colo. – August 28, 2012 – ASD Inc., the global leader in high-performance analytical instrumentation and material analysis solutions, today announced it is expanding its strategic reseller partnerships in Mexico with the addition of reseller Petroservicios Industriales S.A. de C.V.  This partnership enables further market penetration in the Mexican mining market with sales of ASD’s mining-focused instrumentation solutions utilizing near-infrared spectroscopy.

“Petroservicios is a leading provider of measurement analysis solutions in Mexico, and it is fundamentally important that the technology and services that we provide to the mining industry meets the needs of our customers,” said Carlos Clynes Mogica, president of Petroservicios. “Petroservicios offers a full range of instrument technologies like XRF spectroscopy that measure elemental materials. By bringing in ASD’s line of mineral analyzers, we can now help our customers better determine the presence of minerals, the ore body composition and location of copper and gold. Our mining customers will now have better information about their operation and better knowledge on how to create efficiencies and increase mining yields.”  

Both the TerraSpec® and QualitySpec® 7000 lines of instruments use rapid and non-destructive analysis.

The TerraSpec 4 line of mineral analyzers is used extensively by exploration mineralogists and mining operations around the world. Portable and fast, this is the go-to instrument in mineral exploration. In mining production, it can identify critical indicator minerals, problem gangue minerals such as swelling clays, and quantifies other important metallurgical properties, and is capable of characterizing hundreds of mineralogical samples per day.

The QualitySpec 7000 system provides continuous measurement of complex ore bodies transported on a conveyor belt. A single, non-contact scan provides data on multiple constituents.  

”Mexico is one of the top mining regions in the world. We are delighted to welcome Petroservicios to our team and look forward to working together to provide exploration outfits and mining operators in Mexico with solution sets that increase mining yields and profitability,” said Michael Lands, vice president of sales and marketing. “Our expanding worldwide mining presence relies on our strong network of strong and experienced reseller partners like Petroservicios to fuel our growth in this key market.”
