Background FAME in Jet Fuel Measurements

The increased use of biodiesel (FAME) led to the issue of cross‐contamination of jet fuel during transportation or storage in multiproduct facilities, like pipelines and ships or road tankers. FAME is known to negatively influence the thermal stability of jet fuel and to lead to a performance deterioration of aircraft engines, e.g., by forming coke deposits. Therefore, a maximum FAME content of 50 mg/kg has been included in international jet fuel specifications DEF STAN 91‐091 and ASTM D1655.

The EcoSpec® is designed to quantify the oil and grease content in aqueous samples, such as produced water or waste water.

  • Based on QCL-IR technology
  • EcoSpec® Analyzer complies with ASTM D7678
  • Designed to quantify oil and grease in water or soil
  • CFC-free extraction
  • High precision (SD: 0.05 mg/L below 10 mg/L)
  • Wide measurement range (0 - 2000 mg/L)
  • Fully portable, rugged design
Background Oil-in-Water Measurements

Knowing the oil content in the process streams, the treatment of the resulting waste water can be optimized and production costs can be decreased. Historically, the measurement of the oil content in produced water and waste water was either time-consuming or required ozone depleting CFCs as solvents. The use of these solvents has been forbidden or restricted by the United Nations Montreal Protocol. The ASTM D7678 standardized test method offers an eco-friendly alternative to measure oil-in-water using non-ozone depleting chemicals. The patented EcoSpec® oil-in-water and oil-in-soil analyzer from QuantaRed Technologies required to run ASTM D7678 yields results within minutes and at unrivaled precision.
