New Method Determines FAME in Aviation Turbine Fuel by Gas Chromatography

PAC, en førende global leverandør af avancerede analytiske instrumenter til laboratorier og online-procesapplikationer, som er banebrydende for IP 599-metoden, "Bestemmelse af fedtsyremethylestere (FAME) i luftfartsturbinebrændstof - Gaskromatografi ved hjælp af hjerte-cut og refocusing", det var For nylig godkendt og offentliggjort af Energy Institute (EI). Som led i godkendelsesprocessen gennemførte EI et dybtgående interlaboratoriumundersøgelse, der omfattede 8-laboratorier fra Europa og Canada, der analyserede prøverne ved hjælp af denne metode. Præcisionen, som beregnet af Energy Institute, overstiger de kendte udsagn for konkurrerende teknologier som IP 583 (IR), IP 585 (GC-MS) og IP 590 (HPLC) metoder.

PAC developed this new method after its AC FAME in AVTUR analyzer, a unique gas chromatography analyzer combining deans-switching and re-focusing. It provides accurate quantitative data on individual and Total FAME components in the range of C16 to C18 with the option to analyze C14 FAME which is a marker for the presence of lower chain methyl esters such as those produced from coconut oil. This innovative method is specified for the range of approximately 3.5 to 116 mg /kg FAME; this is sufficient to meet the 5 mg/kg lower limit defined in DEF STAN 91-91 and ASTM D1655.

“In addition to higher precision and analyzing a wide range of jet fuels, this new method utilized by the AC FAME in AVTUR instrument is the easiest one to perform due to no sample preparation or complex multi component calibrations,” says David Tran, Vice-President of PAC Product Management and Marketing. “Due to its ease of use, a highly educated chemist is no longer required to run this analysis. It can now be used for routine analysis by refineries, distribution and pipeline companies, independent labs, airline companies, or military for the measurement of FAME (biodiesel) in jet fuel.”
