SINPAR Octane Engines FTC-M2 provide the system for determining the octane number of gasoline and fuel blending components, the same as Waukesha CFR-F1/F2 engines, using a standardized single cylinder engine that consists of standard components as follows: a heavy duty crankcase with flywheel connected to main electrical motor, a variable compression cylinder, a jacket coolant system, a four-bowl carburetor with adjustable fuel to air ratio, an intake air system with controlled temperature and humidity equipment, electrical control system and a combustion knock measurement instrument.
SINPAR FTC Octane engine and Waukesha CFR octane engine run octane tests in accordance with a same defined set of operating conditions and the same rating procedures, conforming to ASTM D2699 (RON) and ASTM D2700(MON) Standard Test Methods.
In order to verify the precision and bias of the test results of SINPAR FTC Octane engine. SINPAR testing center and users have made a lot of comparison round robin tests between FTC Octane engines and CFR Octane engines.
The comparison round robin tests had been carried out in different laboratories, at different times, using different machines with different operators. The round robin test results showed that there were very minor differences between the Waukesha CFR engines and SINPAR FTC engines. These minor differences in results are well within the standard range of ASTM D2699 and ASTM D2700.
SINPAR has been focusing on octane test engines for many years, constantly updating and improving the equipment with new technologies. We are committed to providing customers with the complete octane testing solutions. It turns out that in the current octane test market, SINPAR octane engines have significant advantages in several key areas, such as instrument pricing, usage and maintenance costs, and after-sales services.
