Herzog by PAC pioneered the Cetane ID 510 instrument, a unique technology that is proven to provide the best precision in the market for determining DCN of all types of Diesel Fuels, Biodiesel, FAME, HVO, BTL, and GTL. It is a compact, easy to use, and fully automated analyzer, that offers excellent return on investment, and that is in compliance with today’s safety requirements.
Accurate analysis of Derived Cetane Number (DCN) is an important tool for diesel and biodiesel fuel blenders and refineries to maintain fuel consistency and quality. Existing technologies, such as CFR Engine and CVCC methods, do not meet present market requirements with their high investment and operational cost, difficult operation, and poor system performance.
The CID 510 is in perfect correlation to ASTM D613, EN 16715, ISO 5165, IP 41 and IP 615. The patented test method ASTM D7668 is approved as standard and officially listed in diesel specifications: ASTM D975, ASTM D6751, ASTM D7467 and EN 590.
