Product Description The Portable Fuel Property Analyzer (PFPA) provides rapid fuel analysis anywhere it's needed: the plant, port, or field. Analysis is obtained in seconds using only a 2 mL fuel sample. The PFPA uses Near Infrared Spectroscopy combined with Advanced Multivariate Analysis to determine key fuel properties that influence engine performance.
The PFPA property determinations were developed and validated according to ASTM E1655 "Standard Practice for Infrared Multivariate Quantitative Analysis" using the property values of a diverse matrix of over 800 fuels from around the world determined by traditional ASTM methods.
