Showing results for: Cetane Number
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.
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).

The analyser measurements correlate to all other ASTM cetane number methods such as D613, D6890, and D7668.
