Applications Jet Fuel


Innovative Technologies

  • Features a unique combination of Deans switching and re-focusing with the advantages of gas chromatography
  • Requires minimal investment cost compared to other methods
  • Analyzes a broad concentration range of FAME
  • Handles wide range aviation turbine (AVTUR) fuels (e.g., diesel contaminated)
  • Offers excellent detectability, stability, dynamic range, and repeatability at ppm levels
  • Provides excellent separation and detection limits due to unique re-focus module
  • Eliminates the need for cryogenics for cold trap required (system uses air only)
  • Meets proposed method: IP PM EL (Heart cut GC)
