A winner in many ways: ERASPEC – easy Multi-Fuel-Analysis in seconds

It’s all about pushing a button: ERASPEC is the leading fully automated mid FTIR Spectrometer for multi-fuel analysis.

The ERASPEC Multi-Fuel-Analyser easily analyse your fuel of choice with only one analyser. No matter if it’s gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel or biodiesel/FAME – measurements are done within 60 seconds. As a portable stand-alone instrument, it can be used in the lab, in mobile laboratories and in the field.

The portable multi-fuel analyser ERASPEC measures a mid-infrared spectrum and delivers highly accurate results for the most important fuel parameters. Only by pushing a button ERASPEC delivers over 100 fuel parameters such as benzene, oxygenates or even complex properties like RON and MON within a few seconds. ERASPEC analyses also Biodiesel/FAME and vegetable oil in diesel fuel across a range of 0-100 Vol% in full compliance with ASTM D7806 and EN14078.

The AFR Automatic Fuel Recognition Module allows the measurement of unknown samples whether it is gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and starts automatically the correct analysis. For measuring large numbers of samples ERASPEC can be equipped with a 10-position autosampler. With the built-in-U-tube density meter ERASPEC measures according to ASTM D7777 and ISO 15212.

The measurement procedure doesn’t need any consumables. In not more than 60 seconds the measurement is completed, results are calculated and stored in the internal database. ERASPEC can print the results automatically and transfer them to a LIMS. Exporting the data to Excel is as simple as connecting a USB drive and hitting the export button.

ERASPEC can easily calculate complex properties such as RON, MON, distillation points of the analysed fuels and results are promptly available. For that task ERASPEC comes with a preinstalled database. Depending on customer requirements this database can easily and comfortably be expanded by the user. The added data is immediately ready for the next measurement improving the measurement results. No complex and time-consuming recalculations are necessary.

Another great application of ERASPEC is the on-site identification of gasoline contamination. With the Gasoline Contamination Module, you can identify the most common contaminants of gasoline. The leading-edge multiple-cell design guarantees the lowest possible limits of detection by automatically selecting the proper path length for the measurement. Among others governmental bodies use ERASPEC in mobile laboratories directly at the gas stations to test the fuel quality fighting fuel adulteration fraud.

The small footprint of the instrument with its rugged and portable design makes ERASPEC not only the perfect solution for laboratory applications, it is also the first choice for mobile fuel testing. With its rugged and portable design, ERASPEC combines all advantages of a cutting-edge-technology in one instrument.
