Raymond Pavitt established Astoria-Pacific, Inc., in 1990. Its headquarters is located in Clackamas, Oregon (a suburb of Portland). Astoria-Pacific is the sole manufacturer of the Astoria and Astoria 2 continuous flow analyzers.

Astoria-Pacific started small, with a few offerings in the horticultural market. Its primary product was a liquid rooting concentrate, Dip'N Grow, for woody plant propagation.

The company later expanded into the automated chemistry and analyzer business by buying back the manufacturing rights of the RFA(TM) 300, which Ray brought to market in the '80s while at ALPKEM.

Astoria-Pacific's Research and Development team updated the modules of the RFA and integrated them with our powerful FASPacII software platform, which gave rise to the Astoria and Astoria2 analyzers.

Today, Dip'N Grow and Astoria-Pacific have become successful individual entities, and Astoria-Pacific has grown significantly to offer a wide variety of automated wet chemistry analyzers--both segmented flow and discrete--for several markets.

Our goal is to provide our customers with the best products and support in the industry.

Wine Analysis: The rAPID-T Is Durable, Affordable, and Can Be Used for Any Size Winery
02 February, 2018

Billions of bottles of wine are being produced every year, and many wineries have grown so large that the routine analyses of sulfites, acetic acid/volatile acidity, etc., have become more and more difficult. When production numbers are approaching 3,000–let alone 300,000–cases or more, testing for the on-site laboratory can become quite a daunting task.

These wine labs need to have analyses completed rapidly to keep up with the demands of production, since wine makers require these data to ensure quality wines. Such prompt, accurate testing can be done only through automation.

Trust in Astoria-Pacific. Our company understands the needs of the modern winery. With our many years of experience in automated analyzers, we are here to help you monitor analyses from the beginning of harvest to the final bottling process. Ask an Astoria-Pacific representative to tailor fit a system to your laboratory today.
