Portable Fuel Property Analyzer (PFPA)

Portable Fuel Property Analyzer (PFPA)

26 ,September 2019

The Portable Fuel Property Analyzer (PFPA) provides rapid fuel analysis anywhere it’s needed: the plant, port,
or field. Analysis is obtained in seconds using only a 2 mL fuel sample. The PFPA uses Near Infrared
Spectroscopy combined with Advanced Multivariate Analysis to determine key fuel properties that influence
engine performance. The PFPA property determinations were developed and validated according to ASTM
E1655 “Standard Practice for Infrared Multivariate Quantitative Analysis” using the property values of a diverse
matrix of over 800 fuels from around the world determined by traditional ASTM methods.

The PFPA is used as follows:
1) The PFPA is turned On (warm-up takes 1 minute)
2) The type of fuel, Diesel, Jet or Gasoline is selected
3) A Reference Vial is placed in the PFPA and measured by pressing RUN (measurements take 10 seconds).
4) The Sample is placed in a disposable 2 mL vial, sealed, placed in the PFPA and measured by pressing RUN.
5) The Results are displayed in 10 seconds, and can be printed by pressing PRINT RESULTS.
There is no cleaning or flushing required between samples!
