The InfraSpec Multi-biofuel Spectometer is a spectral range analyzer covering a wavelength range of 5.4-10.8 µm (1850-925 cm-1), capable of measuring more than one component in the biofuel sample. The advantage of a filter-based spectrometer is there are no moving parts making it a compact, rugged, portable analyzer that is easy for non-technical personnel to operate on-site or in a lab – at a cost less than other analytical measurement techniques. Ideal for use at production facilities, fuel loading racks, distribution centers and regulatory testing. Comparable results to both EN 14078 and ASTM D7371 for measuring biodiesel in diesel.

Calibration

Calibration

Model E

The InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer, Model E can be ordered with or without a factory calibration. Two ranges are of biodiesel standards and factory calibrations are available: 0-30% and 0-100%. The InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer, and InfraCal 2 Models ATR-B can store multiple calibrations. A factory calibration using calibration standards prepared by a certified laboratory prepares the analyzer for immediate use once received. This option is strongly recommended for customers who do not wish to calibrate the analyzer themselves.

White Papers

  • The Effect of Biodiesel Feedstocks on Infrared Blend Measurements
    A common concern among biodiesel blenders and distributors is whether a biodiesel made from different feedstocks such as soy, waste vegetable oil or palm oil will affect the blend measurement. The data, as well as the chemistry, shows that infrared measurements offer a reliable analytical technique for checking biodiesel blend.
  • Comparison of EN 14078 and ASTM D7371 Infrared Biodiesel Methods
    Both EN 14078 and ASTM D7371 methods for measuring the percent biodiesel in diesel fuel use infrared as the analytical method and more specifically FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) spectrometers; however, both methods have disadvantages. This White Paper discusses both methods and how a simplified infrared analysis method incorporates the most trouble-free portions of each method in a less expensive, easier to operate and more rugged analyzer than an FTIR spectrometer
