BILLERICA, Mass., March 18, 2011 — Bruker Optics Inc. has announced the FUELex, a dedicated portable fuel analyzer for rapid and simultaneous analysis of multiple jet and diesel fuel properties.

It uses an extensive fuel library built from numerous commercial and military sources and is suitable for monitoring changes in jet and diesel fuel quality, providing results on more than 12 properties simultaneously.

Using a fiber optic dip probe, FUELex sampling consumes no fuel and requires no special sample preparation. Current sample type capabilities include Jet A, Jet A-1, JP5, JP8, Diesel and Diesel 1. Results are ready in <3 s after activating the measurement.

The device permits multiple properties of the sample fuel to be measured simultaneously and correlated to American Society for Testing and Materials parameters. These properties include American Petroleum Institute gravity, percent aromatics, cetane index, density, 10%/20%/50%/90% recovered distillation temperatures, freeze point (pour point for diesels), flash point, hydrogen content, viscosities and saturates.

Operation requires minimal training and is performed with touch-screen commands. The display can be set for simple pass/fail readouts, and the operation leaves little chance for error. The analyzer is thermally stable and can be operated over a wide temperature range from -30 to 45 ºC. It is constructed with a NEMA4/IP65 enclosure for use in adverse weather and environmental conditions.

It uses high-throughput, near-infrared optical technology with no moving parts, rendering it stable and repeatable, and the unit can be moved without requiring recalibration.
