FAME in Biodiesel

…is a rugged, small footprint (2 foot by 2 foot) analyzer that utilizes mid-infrared spectroscopy to determine content of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) biodiesel in diesel fuel per ASTM D7371. Calibration models have been developed, validated, and tested, and are built into the dedicated QA/QC PC-based software package included with the system. Instruments installed in refinery labs report that operation requires minimal PC skills, user training, and maintenance, and all data is saved automatically, thus eliminating potential for data loss.
