  • Octane Number of Gasoline using NIR Spectroscopy #3012

    When every second counts and performance is on the line Guided Wave's NIR analyzers allow for easy measurement of octane numbers in gasoline and refinery production units using fiber optic -based, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. *Fast and reliable measurement of the octane number of gasoline (RON & MON). * Control gasoline production in real-time directly with in process monitoring. * Certify gasoline meets specification before release. *Gain significant improvements in process control. *Minimize the need for laboratory sample collection and the labor intensive "knock engine" method. The measurement of the octane number of gasoline using NIR spectroscopy is both fast and reliable utilizing Guided Wave analyzers. Results are available in real-time (seconds) for multiple parameters in complex streams. Request Application Note #3012

  • 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.
