Features and Benefits
- Test results equivalent to ASTM D2699 and D2700 test methods
- Measures all grades of unleaded gasoline
- Test results equivalent to ASTM D613 for Cetane Number of diesel fuels (Optional with K88612)
- Displays results in 20 seconds
- Directly measures octane number for {(R+M)}/2, RON and MON
- Optional feature for cetane index and cetane number determination of diesel fuels
- Includes RS-232 output, built-in printer and LCD display
- Results traceable to official knock engine laboratory
- GPS model available for use with GPS locator accessory (extra cost)
Portable Octane Analyzer with Cetane Index and Cetane Number measures octane number via near-infrared (NIR) transmission spectroscopy utilizing 14 near-infrared emitting diodes with narrow bandpass filters, a silicon detector system, and a fully integrated microprocessor. Simple octane number determination requires three easy steps: sampling a background signal, acquiring two absorption spectra of the gas sample, and then acquiring a second background signal. Analyzer is pre-calibrated for unleaded gasoline and ethanol-blended fuels, and can be calibrated for up to eight additional fuel types. The analyzer is small, lightweight, and operates on AA batteries or AC. Before each reading, the unit standardizes itself to assure accuracy. The octane number is printed with time and date on the built-in printer. An optional model with a GPS locator and automatic fuel selector is also available. All data can be downloaded via the RS232 port to an external computer.
Specifications: Accuracy and repeatability equivalent to ASTM approved CFR engines test methods (ASTM D2699 and D2700 for Octane Number and ASTM D613 for Cetane Number)
Sample Holder: Sealed, cylindrical glass container (75mm optical path length)
Sample Volume: 8 Ounces (approx. 225 mL)
