New and brighter horizons for octane testing with advances in XCP® technology

Aug 10 2020 Read 130 Times

CFR Engines Inc. continues to update and improve its octane rating system with two recent product releases. These investments represent CFR’s commitment to engine-based octane testing and are the outcome of a CFR focus on providing comprehensive advanced solutions for customers. XCP technology provides CFR the platform to offer integrated systems with expanded capabilities, such as the Octane Analyser (OA) and the Engine Air Control System (EACS). Upcoming developments to the engine and control panel will continue to prove the capabilities and benefits of XCP technology in octane testing.

In 2008, CFR launched its innovative Expandable Control Platform (XCP) to bring computer-based accuracy and process accountability to fuel testing. Introduced first on the CFR F1/F2, XCP Technology was quickly expanded to the CFR F5 and has been a major step forward in allowing users to capitalise on the benefits of improved octane and cetane testing. XCP Technology provides the measurement accuracy and speed of digital instrumentation, the flexibility and ease-of use of computer guided operation, and the traceable accountability of automatic data recording and reporting.

XCP Technology is standard equipment on all new CFR units and is also available as an upgrade for currently installed CFR units. Depending on the unit age and mechanical condition, many units can be upgraded from an existing Legacy control panel to XCP Technology. Upgrading existing units can be done with minimized downtime and at a reduced cost. CFR Engines Inc. and its authorised CFR Distributors are uniquely trained to help users determine the XCP solution that is best for their installation.
