Fuel Analysis

We offer virtually every standard industry test, including ASTM, UOP, SAE, and more to evaluate fuel, lubricant and functional fluid quality. CFR octane and cetane engines measure antiknock characteristics of finished gasolines and the ignition quality of diesel fuels. Our gasoline analyses include research and motor octane numbers, benzene content, hydrocarbon typing, distillations, oxygenate content, sulfur and other elemental contents, vapor pressure, unwashed and washed gums, oxidation stability, sulfur speciation and density. We perform diesel fuel analyses including biodiesel specification, cetane numbers, hydrocarbon typing, distillations, density, water and sediment, heat of combustion, sulfur content, carbon residue, cold filter plugging point, low temperature flow test, cloud point, pour point, copper strip corrosion, aniline point, hydrogen speciation, particulate contamination, carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen content, color, poly-nuclear aromatic content and filter blocking tendency.
