Automatic Measurement of Gasoline, Jet Fuels, and Diesel

The MINISCAN IR VISION, designed by Grabner Instruments, is a high-speed, compact and robust FTIR fuel analyzer for the complete and automatic measurement of jet, gasoline, and diesel fuels. The analyzer is designed to compute over 100 fuel parameters and components for fuel blending, for quality inspection and to check agreement with fuel specifications right at the point of sale.

100+ Preconfigured Parameters Measured

A compound analysis is carried out according to the universal standards ASTM D6277 and EN 238 for Benzene, ASTM D5845 for oxygenates, and EN 14078 for Biodiesel blends. An incorporated temperature regulated density meter permits exact determination and stability of fuel density. Octane and cetane number, vapor pressure, distillation, and other fuel properties are automatically established from the total IR spectrum using Partial Least Square (PLS) analysis and innovative chemometric models following ASTM E1655. Numerous data points are used to accomplish the highest level prediction accuracy.

Data Based On Real Samples Amassed and Tested by SGS®!

For predicted properties, the MINISCAN IR VISION operates calibration data that has to comply with the strictest quality regulations. As a distinctive feature, the instrument is provided with a database of samples that have been gathered and tested by SGS®!

High-Quality Portable Technology

The MINISCAN IR Vision is unrivaled in its category of portable fuel analyzers. The thermoelectric temperature control of the instrument’s filling unit, measuring cells and combined density meter boosts accuracy in measuring volume and mass percentage of fuel compounds.

Robust for Field Use

Durability renders the instrument suitable for the trials encountered during mobile or field testing. The MINISCAN IR Vision includes Grabner’s verified, strong and bubble-free metal filling system. The instrument is safeguarded by the shock and vibration tested Vision platform housing. The double interferometer is placed with a self-aligning mirror system that allows automatic correction of intensity changes after a bumpy drive over a rough road. A sturdy, 10” full-color industrial touchscreen ensures maximum visibility and easy usage even under challenging environmental circumstances. For field application, the instrument can be operated using a 12 V car adapter.
