  • Get Comparable ASTM/EN Data for Biodiesel Blend Measurements While Saving Time and Money using Portable IR Analyzers

    Both EN 14078 and ASTM D7371 methods for measuring the percent biodiesel in diesel fuel use infrared analysis as the analytical method and are based around using an FTIR spectrometer which has the capability to do a multitude of analyses besides the biodiesel in diesel measurement. This is great for a laboratory where various biofuels measurements are required. However, if the only measurement ...

  • New technologies for measuring the humidity of biomass

    Methods applicable to a great variety of solid biofuels In recent years, systems have sprung up which use near infrared X-ray (NIR) spectroscopy, radio frequency (RF) and microwave spectroscopy as alternatives to the traditional method of measuring humidity by weight difference in the fuel burner. What these methods have in common is that they can be used for a great variety of solid biofuels, ...
