A major pipeline company has large storage tank farms throughout the Western States. The pipeline company transports, stores, blends additives, and distributes gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel to retail service stations and airports. Due to the quantity and movement of fuel at these facilities, there is always the potential for fuel spills.
Crude oil is a highly complex mixture of hydrocarbons. Through desalting, distillation, and conversion, it is transformed into fractions of higher-quality hydrocarbons such as paraffins, aromatics, naphthenes, and olefins. Different ratios of these so-called PIANO compounds are blended to yield different fuel and lubricant types. Increasingly, fossil fuels are blended with biofuels. Both blending and refining processes are demanding and require precise and reliable analysis. Regardless whether you deal with...
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...
If you produce or consume biomass fuels, you know that quality is critical to your success, and you know that moisture and ash content control are critical to biomass fuel quality. Too much moisture and you get poor efficience and high emissions. Too much ash and you get fouling and slagging. And if either of those is uncontrolled, purchase contracts can fall through. Computrac can help.
Crude oil (after first stage separator), offloading of crude oil, water injection or refined petroleum. EF10-C clamp-on,non-intrusive ultrasonic flowmeter for easy installation. The enclosure is IP65 (NEMA 4X) wall-mount type. Class 1 Div 2 version can be offerred upon request.
The use of ethanol as a gasoline additive has increased dramatically over the past few years and will likely continue to increase. For fuel blenders, this means an added challenge to avoid an incorrect blend that could lead to regulatory fines, loss of customer confidence and damage to equipment. A quick on-site analysis with a portable mid-infrared based analyzer, such as the InfraCal 2 Ethanol Blend Analyzer shown in the photo, can help fuel blenders quickly flag out-of-spec product and ensure the...
Our Fuel Monitoring & Vehicle tracking solution is one of the best Telematics solutions in India and our current channel partners include an European auto giant manufacturing trucks in India.
Fuel monitoring is time tested for less than 1% error in fuel level detection in vehicles. It has been deployed in various Trucks, Cranes, Diesel Generators & Storage tanks.
As the alternatives to fossil fuels for power generation and automotive power become more widespread and preferred, so has increased the research and testing of hydrogen gas in fuel cells. The hydrogen (H2) gas used in fuel cell has to be free of impurities in order to make the fuel cell as efficient as possible and so quality thresholds have been set in legislation. Such legislation as SAE J2719 provides hydrogen fuel quality standards for proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell vehicles. If impurities above...
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.
For more than 25 years, coal and biomass fired plants have formed the largest installed user base for Procal CEM systems. Throughout this period, there has been increasing environmental scrutiny and process upgrades, including the near-ubiquitous use of after-treatment systems such as sophisticated FGD and SCR.
Hiden gas/vapour analysers, optimized specifically for fuel cell research, offer a number of key benefits over other analysis techniques: rapid response (critical for temperature programmed studies), wide dynamic range, repeatability and linearity, are all of the up most importance when analyzing processes - particularly those in the presence of hydrogen - with widely varying gas concentrations.
These features provide for accurate, stable and reproducible analysis of low molecular weight species, over a wide...
R&D tests using HNG in a fuel injection mixture is showing how effective HNG can be in making diesel and other fuels burns cleaner and more efficiently. Developments for a full scale implementation of the HNG Fuel Activator are in process with an initial focus on diesel fuels.
