Stanhope-Seta's new FAME In Jet Instrument, the FIJI uses test method IP 583 (AVTUR) to determine the parts per million (PPM or mg/kg) level of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) in aviation turbine fuel.
Suitable for both laboratory and field applications, the FIJI FAME In Jet Instrument is a user-friendly system that doesn’t require any specialised operator training. Quick and easy to use, the FIJI has a measuring range of 20 -150 mg/kg and is capable of detecting all types of FAME in the range of C8 to C22.
The sample preparation module pumps the sample to a maximum quantity of 50ml at a controlled rate through a disposable cartridge and the components are then spectrally analysed via Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (FTIS).
The FIJI FAME In Jet Instrument takes about 20 minutes for the analysis and the test results can be viewed on a graphical spectrum via Windows XP/Vista/7 software.
Stanhope Seta has combined their innovative sample preparation system with Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectroscopy technology to provide detection accuracy as low as 20mg/kg.
The FIJI FAME In Jet Instrument is self-cleaning and doesn’t require any solvents. The cartridge can be quickly and easily replaced after each test.
The FIJI FAME In Jet Instrument is available from John Morris Scientific in Australia.
