XCP Technology delivers accuracy and accountability needed for Octane and Cetane testing

Aug 13 2019 Read 24 Times

First developed as a response to government and industry needs, CFR Engines Inc. octane and cetane testing units have since provided reliable and proven performance to thousands of global users. This reliability has been consistently maintained for over 90 years through a series of well-designed system upgrades and product enhancements. CFR® systems and components are built to deliver unsurpassed operating life, from the robust engine crankcase and cylinder to the industrial grade control panels and accessories. With basic maintenance and upkeep, a user can expect CFR Engines Inc. products to consistently withstand the demands of today’s fuel testing environment with a true engine-based octane or cetane test.

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 capitalize on the benefits of improved octane and cetane testing. XCP Technology provides the measurement accuracy of digital instrumentation, the flexibility and ease-of use of computer guided operation, and the traceable accountability of 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 minimised 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.
