Wilks Biofuels Blend Analyzers Tested

May 25, 2010

NORWALK, CT - Wilks Enterprise announced the availability of comparison data, performed by independent laboratories, on its InfraCal Ethanol and Biodiesel Blend Analyzers and InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer. 

The InfraCal Ethanol Blend Analyzer was tested against an Oxygenate Flame Ionization Detector (O-FID) with comparable results. The InfraCal Biodiesel (FAME) Blend Analyzer and InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer were compared to an FT-IR using EN 14078 and ASTM 7371 methods. 

In all tests, the results obtained with the Wilks instruments were at least equal, if not better, Wilks Enterprise said. 

"This data indicates that the InfraCal Ethanol and Biodiesel Blend Analyzers, as well as the InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer, do provide results comparable to EN 14078 and ASTM 7371 methods," the company said. "However, they provide a significant advantage in that they are rugged, portable, easy-to-use instruments that provide measurement data in less than one minute."
