• Portable Octane Analyzer

Portable Octane Analyzer



Determines the Pump Octane Number (AKI), Research Octane Number (RON), and Motor Octane Number (MON) of unleaded gasoline, ethanol blended gasoline, leaded gasoline and Cetane Number for diesel fuels.

  • Test results equivalent to ASTM D2699 and D2700 test methods
  • Measures all grades of unleaded gasoline and ethanol blended gasoline
  • Test results equivalent to ASTM D613 for Cetane Number of diesel fuels (Optional with K88612)
  • Displays results in 20 seconds
  • Directly measures octane number for {(R+M)}/2, RON and MON
  • Optional feature for cetane number determination of diesel fuels
  • Includes RS-232 output, built-in printer and LCD display
  • Results traceable to official knock engine laboratory
  • GPS model available for use with GPS locator accessory Safety Features Out of Temperature Range Warning: Analyzer displays Out of Range Warning Message when instrument in being used outside of its standard operating temperature range. Either above 38°C or below 7°C.
  • Out of Calibration Range Warning: Analyzer displays “Too High” or “Too
  • Low” message when measurement reading is out of the instruments calibration range.
  • Bad Curve Warning: Analyzer warns user when light protective lid is not on during testing. External light source will greatly disrupt results.

Measures octane number via near-infrared (NIR) transmission spectroscopy utilizing 14 near-infrared emitting diodes with narrow bandpass filters, a silicon detector system, and a fully integrated microprocessor. Simple octane number determination requires three easy steps: sampling a background signal, acquiring two absorption spectra of the gas sample, and then acquiring a second background signal. Analyzer is pre-calibrated for unleaded gasoline and ethanol-blended fuels, and can be calibrated for up to eight additional fuel types. The analyzer is small, lightweight, and operates on "AA" batteries or AC. Before each reading, the unit standardizes itself to assure accuracy. The octane number is printed with time and date on the built-in printer. All data can be downloaded via the RS232 port to an external computer.
