  • Cloud Point of Diesel Fuel #3074

    The Cloud Point of a diesel fuel is the temperature below which wax forms giving the fuel a cloudy appearance. This parameter is an important property of the fuel since the presence of solidified waxes can clog filters and negatively impact engine performance. The traditional laboratory methods for the measurement of Cloud Point are optical in nature, but rely on cooling the fuel for the wax formation to occur. Guided Wave’s process analyzers can measure compositional changes in the fuel that will be directly related to the wax formation and hence the Cloud Point. This note will discuss the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of the Cloud Point of diesel fuel using fiber optic-based, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR can be applied in real time directly in process.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for phosgene monitoring

    Phosgene COCl2 is a colorless gas. While it has been used as a Chemical Weapon Agent (CWA) in the past, currently this poisonous gas is also an important reagent in synthesis in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The plants using phosgene are typically equipped with gas sensors to detect leaks in the indoor ambient air. The critical situations arise when equipment in contact with the gas at the manufacturing facilities are serviced and maintained. As phosgene is very poisonous, even small gas pockets in serviced equipment may be dangerous to maintenance personnel. Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzers are ideal tools to monitor point sources of phosgene. The measurement technology has high specificity, may be operated continuously, and has a fast response time.
