FIT Cetane Rating

Optimizing engine performance and protection requires matching carefully defined fuel qualities to the specific needs of the engine. GE’s Waukesha gas engines pioneered the CFR fuel rating technology more than 80 years ago and its fuel rating units remain the most widely used in the world. Among the Waukesha fuel rating products is the FIT fuel ignition test unit for determining the derived cetane number for diesel fuels.   

Features and Benefits

  • Fast and accurate: Automated injection timing, compression ratio adjustment, fuel flow measurement and reference fuel blending shortens cycle time to 20 minutes, requires less operator involvement, improves accuracy and reduces reference fuel costs.
  • Automated calculations: Software controls process to determine the derived cetane number with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability and no evidence of memory effect.
  • Simple calibration on readily-available reference materials.
  • Space-saving design: Compact, portable desktop unit. 
  • Low maintenance costs.
  • Ideal combustion technology research tool for oil refinery and independent testing labs, and engine manufacturers.

Application

The Waukesha FIT fuel ignition test unit for determining the derived cetane number for diesel fuels is an ideal combustion technology research tool for oil refinery and independent testing laboratories and engine manufacturers. This compact, portable unit delivers quick, accurate results and conforms to ASTM Method D 7170.
