  • Case Study: Monitoring Fuel Treatment with On-Site Fuel Analysis

    Version 8 of our industry leading SpectrOil Optical Emission Spectrometers offers significant performance improvements and enhanced productivity. In particular the sensitivity of the instrument has been improved markedly to allow detection of trace metals down to the part per billion (ppb) level. This capability is particularly important to power generators using liquid fuel, as high levels ...

  • Guide for Measuring Fuel Dilution in Lubricating Oil

    Fuel dilution in oil can cause serious engine damage. High levels of fuel (>2%) in a lubricant can result in decreased viscosity, oil degradation, loss of dispersancy, and loss of oxidation stability. Fuel dilution is one of the most important lubricant failure modes in internal combustion engines. It usually occurs due to ...

  • EU fuel quality monitoring — 2014

    Each year, under the requirements of the European Union (EU) Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) (1), EU Member States must report various types of information relating to the quality of petrol and diesel fuels sold in their territories. More specifically, Member States must sample fuels each year and analyse their technical characteristics to ensure that they are consistent with the requirements of the ...

  • What is the difference between open and closed cup flash point?

    Flash point tests are used to show the lowest temperature that a volatile substance is vapourised into a flammable gas. This is done by introducing a source of ignition, then waiting for the “flash” where the substance is ignited. There are a wide range of methods but most are available in open or closed cup formats – ...

  • High graded gasoline is effect of fuel cavitation

    Is that possible to receive mid octane gasoline by mixing of low octane gasoline, with high-octane? It depends of the some factors such as the method of mixing and a gasoline proportion. Really, fuel with demanded octane number can be received by fuel cavitation of a high-octane grade with the low-octane. In practice a demanded proportion of gasoline of two brands for receiving the third ...

  • Fuel Quality Monitoring System in Indonesia: case study on gasoline quality improvement

    This paper advocates periodical monitoring of fuel quality for conformation to quality standards. The Fuel Quality Monitoring System (FQMS) aims to phase out off-specification fuel from the market by a government initiative. The FQMS in developing countries has rather weak management because the insufficient analytical facilities and unskilled human resources result in inadequate monitoring by ...

  • Reducing noise from gasoline engine injectors

    Test and analysis methods for gasoline fuel injector noise are presented along with representative results. Particular attention is paid to validating the test methods. Comparisons are made between a simple analytical model and measured results. Finally, correlation between perceived sound quality and existing acceptance criteria is summarised.Keywords: fuel injectors, acoustics, noise, ...
