As more mandates for a minimum of ethanol in gasoline and biodiesel in diesel come into effect, major oil companies are blending higher percentages of biofuels at their terminals. A quick analytical measurement method to assess the blend ratio can be a valuable asset for fuel distributors, engine manufacturers, fleet operators, and regulatory agencies. The InfraCal Biodiesel and Ethanol Blend Analyzers offer a quick way to verify that fuel blends are on spec. They are ideal for use for non-technical personnel and...

Testing and evaluating the quality of solid fuels, biofuels or secondary fuels are extremely important for the development of the industry. This applies both to their production, and to matching to different technologies. Thanks to modern scientific-research facilities, the laboratories of the Central Mining Institute have a comprehensive offer in this area, containing also the consulting and training services.
The continuing establishment of nuclear power stations around the world pose unique environmental challenges for their operators. Ecotech provides air samplers to nuclear power plants for sampling of radionuclides.
A nuclear power plant`s radionuclide monitoring network enables continuous sampling of airborne particles onto sample filters contained within High Volume Air Samplers. These filters are then analysed in a laboratory in order to screen for any radiation releases. The challenge has always been to...
Power Generation Combustion Air Measurements: The need for accurate, repeatable & reliable combustion air measurements in power generation plants is critical to efficient operation and safety throughout the entire facility and processes. Coal-fired power plant applications pose a number of challenges to obtaining these critical flow measurements includ¬ing large ducts, limited metering runs, poor velocity and temperature profiles, high vibration, temperatures up to 750° F and dirty `Fly Ash` laden air.
Bio-fuel: A Bio-fuel is a fuel that contains energy from geologically recent carbon fixation. These fuels are produced from living organisms. Bio-fuels are made by a biomass conversion from a wide range of natural and organic resources which includes solid biomass, liquid fuel and biogases. Bio-fuels have increased in popularity because of rising oil prices and the need for energy security. The two main bio-fuels are ethanol and bio-diesel; both type of fuel causes less pollution as compared to conventional...
Composition of Natural Gas, Syngas via VOC SpeciationThe composition of fuel gas is important in order to determine calorific value and also to detect any unwanted contaminants in the gas. Online analysis is important in order to give real-time and direct action on issues.
Ethanol can be produced from a variety of raw materials such as corn, sugar cane, soy beans, switchgrass, corn stover, and cellulosic materials. Corn can be processed in a dry or wet mill to produce ethanol. Advances and research in ethanol continues to find new and more energy efficient ways to produce ethanol and biofuels and new raw materials for production.
In a recent project and the subject of this paper, Kurz engineers conducted a study that lead to a unique, new design that allows thermal flow meters to perform accurately within a wet digester gas environment. The testing environment applies to landfill and digester applications.
Combustion processes occur in many modern technologies such as power production, heating, automotive and aircraft engines and even explosion research.
The application areas range from fuel injection and mixing and flow velocity information to measurements of combustion species and soot concentration.
Because of the impact on the global climate and the limited resources of fossil fuels, the importance of these applications is increasing, especially with respect to performance, fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
