SINPAR FTC-AD1 Automatic Reference Fuel Blending Unit is used for the automated preparation of cetane and octane reference fuels and standardization fuels for Octane/Cetane CFR test engine according to ASTM D2699, ASTM D2700, ASTM D2885, and ASTM D613.
The blending unit prepares the reference fuel blends by weight (using a precision electronic balance) based on the ASTM test methods. With the automatic calculation and control program, it delivers the accurate and reliable fuel blend value with the precision of 0.01ON/CN.
The blending unit is equipped with six tanks of 10 liters each (for Iso-Octane, N-Heptane, Toluene, 80/20 blend, N-Cetane, and Heptamethylnonane (HMN)/Alpha-methyl-naphthalene (AMN) ), and six dosing pumps. The blending components are pumped one by one into a vessel, located on an electronic balance.
The build-in touch screen panel with the professional software controls all blending process, and makes blending operation simple. The operator just needs to select the standard method, input the target octane/cetane number and sample volume, start blending. The fuel blend is delivered automatically. Blend data is automatically saved in the computer.
Compared to the targeted octane / cetane number, the effective octane or cetane number may differ slightly (+/- 0.01 ON / CN), but will reflect precisely the actual composition of the blend.
