Automation of RON/MON testing enabled by XCP technology.

Dec 08 2020

The newest octane analyser (OA) option from CFR Engines Inc. can be applied to existing CFR F1/F2 units with XCP technology and provide users an automated octane test. With the OA users can expect improved consistency amongst multiple operators and better repeatability on consecutive passes.

The octane analyser upgrade option provides capability to run all four test procedures of the current ASTM Methods D2699 (RON) and D2700 (MON). With the expanded benefit of being able to now run Procedure D (Bracketing OA), users can capitalize on faster test results and better usage of lab resources. Users can attend to increased disinfection procedures and operate other test instruments.

Operators of the CFR F1/F2 unit with OA can automatically complete full 2-pass tests – setup test, fill fuel reservoirs, hit start, and then wait for the report. This unit can test with the broader octane number ranges of Procedure D: 72-103.5 MON and 72-108 RON and manual fuel switching, air/fuel adjustments, and data recording are now automatic. The CFR F1/F2 with OA offers a reduced testing time of approximately 20 minutes for a complete and certifiable octane determination as well as reduced fuel consumption of approximately 100 mL for each fuel (sample and two primaries)
