What does the icon Cetane Number analyser do?
The icon Cetane Number analyser is the first and only online process analyser to measure cetane number. This measures the combustion properties/quality or performance of diesel and biodiesel fuel. The higher the cetane number, the better the fuel burns.
The measurements also include the effects of Cetane improvers, enabling real-time control.
How does the icon Cetane Number analyser work?
The sample is combusted, and a dynamic pressure wave is produced – both ignition delay (ID) and combustion delay (CD) can be determined from this measurement. Built-in equations are then able to calculate a derived cetane number (DCN).

What ASTM methods can be performed with the Cetane Number analyser?
The analyser measurements correlate to all other ASTM cetane number methods such as D613, D6890, and D7668.
