Application – With many countries tightening regulations on gasoline content, it is very important to have a reliable measurement device that can be used in the Laboratory and in the Field. The analyser comes complete with a calibration file for measuring E0-E20 (0- 20% ethanol content in gasoline). gives the user rapid, accurate on-site analysis. The short measurement time for this application (as explained in ‘how to use’) increases the accuracy of the measurement due to the volatility of gasoline.
How To Use – The gasoline sample is placed on the ATR crystal which forms part of the spectrometer. This is done easily with a pipette of approximately 0.5-0.75ml. The measurement is started from the software. After about 30s the ethanol% of the sample will be displayed. The user can add traffic light specification (green/yellow/red) limits to make the result easily defined for any operational personnel.
