PAC Jet fuel testers win award!

The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design presents the JFTOT IV with the GOOD DESIGN™ Award

PAC’s Alcor JFTOT® IV recently won a GOOD DESIGN award presented by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Founded in Chicago (USA) in 1950, GOOD DESIGN remains the oldest and most recognised program for design excellence throughout the world. These awards are given out annually in different categories. The JFTOT IV won a 2013 award in the industrial category.

PAC released the JFTOT IV last May. 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. In addition to its accurate and reliable jet fuel analysis, the JFTOT IV offers enhanced safety features and simplified operational capabilities in a smaller, more streamlined package than previous generations. Its appearance and user interface design, aided by Vanberlo design agency, were also greatly enhanced. The JFTOT IV strictly follows ASTM D3241, IP 323, and ISO 6249 standard test methods.

“PAC is very proud to have received the GOOD DESIGN Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design for one of our most advanced products, the JFTOT IV,” said David Tran, PAC Vice-President of Product Management and Marketing, “One of our main goals for the new instrument was to improve the ease of use and enhance the safety features for our customers. To do this, we incorporated several unique features into the design, such as the quick connect containers, sliding door over the heater tube, and a large touch screen, to enhance the ease of use and safety for the operators. The JFTOT IV also won the Good Industrial Design Award by Designlink recently. It is gratifying that these well-respected organizations have recognized the excellence in our product design and bestowed it with such distinguished awards.”
