  • 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.

  • Power Plant & Power Station Emissions Monitoring

    For more than 25 years, coal and biomass fired plants have formed the largest installed user base for Procal CEM systems. Throughout this period, there has been increasing environmental scrutiny and process upgrades, including the near-ubiquitous use of after-treatment systems such as sophisticated FGD and SCR.

    Measurement of sulphur in oil and fuels for oil & gas industry

    There is a continuing and increasing demand for a rapid, simple and cost-effective measurement of sulfur in a wide range of petroleum products including automotive, marine and aviation fuels. Benchtop EDXRF instruments such as the world renown Lab-X3500 and associated X-Supreme8000, can be found in many refinery laboratories/testing houses, with the instrument often operated by production staff on a 24/7 basis, giving accurate results conforming to globally accepted test methods, e.g. ASTM D4294, ISO20847, and the new ISO13032,etc. Both instruments used the analytical technique of Energy-Dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) which is well regarded for its excellent performance, versatility, ease of use, speed, and cost-effectiveness.

    Measurement of hydrogen in fuels for oil & gas industry

    The combustion properties of fuels are key to the efficient and safe operation of engines used in machinery and plant. One important way to measure the combustion properties of a fuel is by its hydrogen content. The measurement of hydrogen content is widely used for the characterisation of aviation fuel but with the increasing costs of all fuels and the greater incentives for fuel adulteration, this test is increasingly being adopted for non-aviation applications. Our benchtop NMR analyser MQC-23 system is widely used for the measurement of hydrogen in fuels in accordance with ASTM D7171-05.

  • Haze Monitoring

    The principle cause of regional and urban haze, or visibility impairment, is light extinction caused by fine particles, sulfates, organic and elemental carbon, nitrates and crustal matter. Particles between 0.1 and one micrometers in size are most effective at scattering light, in addition to being of greatest concern for human health.

  • Cetane Number of Diesel Fuels #3010

    The Cetane number of a diesel fuel is a measure of the ignition properties and is an important specification that must be met during fuel production. The traditional laboratory method for Cetane number determination is the knock engine method in which the fuel is burned and its combustion characteristics compared to known standards. This method is time and labor intensive, and provides no ability for real time control of production. This note discusses the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of Cetane number in diesel fuel using fiber optic-based, Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR is applied in real-time directly in process monitoring or as a laboratory procedure. In either case NIR is a time and money saving alternative to traditional methods.

  • Fuel Cells

    Hiden gas/vapour analysers, optimized specifically for fuel cell research, offer a number of key benefits over other analysis techniques: rapid response (critical for temperature programmed studies), wide dynamic range, repeatability and linearity, are all of the up most importance when analyzing processes - particularly those in the presence of hydrogen - with widely varying gas concentrations. These features provide for accurate, stable and reproducible analysis of low molecular weight species, over a wide concentration range, present in a hydrogen rich atmosphere, and are found to be invaluable in applications such as the conversion of hydrocarbons, or alcohols, to hydrogen (reformers) for use in Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells.
