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.
calculations: Software controls process to determine the derived cetane number
with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability and no evidence of memory
calibration on readily-available reference materials.
design: Compact, portable desktop unit.
combustion technology research tool for oil refinery and independent
testing labs, and engine manufacturers.
