Product

Product Description – The Ethanol In Gasoline Analyser uses ATR Spectroscopy, based on the ASTM D4815 standard, to extract the Ethanol % parameter from a Gasoline (petrol) sample. The Analyser is basically maintenance free being exclusively constructed from solid state dispersion elements, a black body infrared emitter and infrared sensor element. It is very robust with an outstanding battery lifetime. The Analyser comes with a sophisticated but user-friendly software which is run from an-situ tablet.

Application

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.
