Houston, TX., USA – November 13, 2013 – PAC’s Alcor JFTOT® IV recently won the Good Industrial Design Award (Good Industrieel Ontwerp - GIO) presented by Designlink. The GIO award is the longest running and most renowned award for Industrial Design in the Netherlands. It is held every year and awards are handed out in 5 categories: consumer products, public design and mobility, professional products, interior design, food & retail. The JFTOT IV won the award in the professional products category. PAC released the JFTOT IV in May of this year. Alcor’s JFTOT analyzers are the globally recognized standard for jet fuel thermal oxidation testing with a worldwide installed base over 1000 instruments of various generations of instruments.
