Ethanol Analyzers

Ethanol Analyzers - Corn Field Photo Optional Available Models

Too much ethanol in gasoline can cause issues in some engines. In order to verify the ethanol is blended correctly or a received fuel load is as specified, the Wilks InfraCal Ethanol Blend Analyzers and InfraSpec Spectrometers will give a result in under a minute that will be comparable to gas chromatographic methods and ASTM 4815. These easy-to-use, cost competitive instruments can be located right at a loading rack or in a laboratory.

Wilks has three analyzer options available. The InfraCal 2 ATR-E is the latest introduction to our easy to use analyzers for measuring percent ethanol in petrol. The new InfraCal 2 uses the same measurement technology as our InfraCal HATR-T2E with added features such as data storage and transfer, multiple calibrations and password protection for instrument settings. The InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer is a multi-wavelength infrared spectrometer capable of more than one measurement including percent ethanol in gasoline, water in ethanol, and biodiesel in diesel

Calibration Information

Calibration Information

The InfraCal Ethanol Analyzers & InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometers can be ordered with or without a factory calibration. Two ranges of ethanol standards and factory calibrations are available: 0-20% and 70-100%. The InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer and InfraCal 2 Model ATR-E 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.
