Reference Fuel Blending System for Octane/Cetane Engines

reference fuel blending system for cfr engines
SINPAR FTC-AD1 Automatic Reference Fuel Blending System Unit equipped with a modern computerized automatic control system, is used for the automated preparation of reference & standardization fuels blends for octane/cetane number determination according to ASTM D2699, ASTM D2700, and ASTM D613 standards.
SINPAR is a professional manufacturer of fuel rating equipment. The FTC-AD1 system was developed based on SINPAR’s many years of technical expertise and practical experience in the field of fuel rating technology, with the aim to design an automated blending system with optimal accuracy, efficiency and economy to serve fuel rating operations.

Features & Benefits

ASTM D2699, ASTM D2700, ASTM D2885, and ASTM D613 standard methods.
It’s suitable for long-time and error-free octane/cetane rating operation.
High Precision
An electronic balance with the high precision of 0.01 g is used for gravimetric measurement to ensure the accuracy of blending.
Simple Operation
A built-in touch-screen computer panel with easy-to-use installed software simplifies the blending operation. It requires no training.
Accuracy and Efficiency
The automatic calculation program controls the entire blending process to eliminate human error and improve the efficiency of octane/cetane testing.
Safety and Real-Time Monitoring
The unit is equipped with electrical protection & real-time monitoring systems to meet labs safety requirements. Real-time Monitoring for full-system operating status and ambient temperature. And fuel low and overfill warnings are issued.
Cost Savings with Automation and Efficiency
Saving money by saving time and eliminating materials wastage caused by manual errors.

Automatic Blending By Weight

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 blends with the fuel rating accuracy of 0.01 ON/CN.

Specialized Blending Software

The software was developed by SINPAR R&D team specifically for fuel blending. It is simple, clear, easy to use and requires no training.
The operator just needs to select the blending mode, input the target blending parameters, and start blending. An accurate blend is delivered to the vessel automatically.
The blend data is auto saved and can be printed as the blend certificate.
