Analysis of Biodiesel with the Fuelpro Metals Analyzer

Sep 10 2008 Read 1022 Times

Biodiesel is a clean-burning alternative fuel, produced from
renewable resources such as vegetable oils and animal fats
and waste cooking oils. Biodiesel is usually blended with
traditional petroleum diesel forming a grade of fuel which can be used as a standard diesel product. Since the presence of contaminants in fuel can lead to operational problems, organizations around the globe have developed standards against which biodiesel can be tested.
Accurate elemental analysis of biodiesel requires analytical methodology that is both sensitive and selective. The FuelPro Metals Analyzer is specifically designed for the analysis of Biofuel. FuelPro is fully compliant with both ASTM D6751 and EN14214 for metals analysis. The system is pre-configured with all methods and
procedures to ensure a smooth start-up. All reagents and training required to get you up and running with FuelPro are included. FuelPro is provided with all operator instructions on both a video i-Pod and laminated easy to understand cards. Should regulations change, FuelPro is designed to be upgradeable.
The table above shows concentrations for key elements in a typical biodiesel sample along with spike recoveries and detection limits at each wavelength.
