Wilks – A Spectro Scientific Company


Wilks Enterprise Makes On-Site Measurements Practical and Easy

Wilks was founded in 1995 with a focus to develop, manufacture and sell application-specific mid-infrared (mid-IR) analytical instrumentation - both for qualitative and quantitative measurements. All Wilks analyzers and spectrometers are designed for easy, on-site field or at/near line use. They are equally as useful in the analytical or testing laboratory - virtually anywhere repetitive measurements are needed. Wilks instruments are the ideal solution for a wide variety of measurement applications in the biofuels, petrochemical, environmental, quality control and manufacturing industries.

Wilks analyzers have easy-to-use operator interfaces making them ideal for non-technical personnel with little or no analytical or infrared background. Users can quickly and accurately obtain on-site results, typically in less than a minute. They let you cost-effectively move the application out of the laboratory to the analysis location, eliminating the wait for off-site lab results. And all Wilks products are virtually maintenance-free, providing years of dependable, trouble-free operation.

In October 2013, Wilks was acquired by Spectro Scientific - a leading Massachusetts-based developer and manufacturer of analytical tools and software for the industrial performance fluids market. Wilks is proud to be part of the Spectro family as there is excellent synergy between product lines and industries serviced. In addition, Wilks and Spectro share a common goal of providing customers with easy-to-use analytical solutions for practical on-site measurements.

Our combined solutions move the analysis out of the laboratory to the field where non-technical personnel can perform measurements easily, accurately and quickly.
