BIO FUEL
Handheld sensor unit determines biofuel content of diesel blends

Advanced sensor technology has been developed for the accurate determination of the biofuel content of diesel blends used in a wide range of automotive and industrial power applications.

Hand held DieselProve technology from Salunda Limited is designed to provide a fast and simple diagnostic tool to assess the biofuel content in biodiesel fuels, as well as identifying other impurities such as vegetable oil, white spirit and water.

With the tolerance of biofuel content being critical in relation to engine performance, power output and potential damage to components, the assessment of fuel quality and composition has become an essential preventative maintenance task for users of diesel fuel blends in a range of sectors.

To meet this need, DieselProve utilises patented technology to exploit the electromagnetic properties of the fuel under test to detect the level of biodiesel present.

Less than 50ml of fuel is required to enable the electronic hand held unit and integral probe to provide an accurate in-field measurement of biodiesel content with comparable accuracy to laboratory testing.

Reliable and robust test results are displayed in seconds and can be downloaded to a supporting software program for formal record keeping and reporting options.

DieselProve enables on-site checks to be made quickly against engine manufacturers' permissible content limits or industry fuel quality standards and can be used as a first stage screening tool to determine if more detailed analysis required.

In addition, the test unit is also effective in detecting less than 100% biofuel content in those applications where it is being used on its own.

As well as on-site fuel testing at industrial facilities and fuel supplies for back-up power systems, since samples can be taken from an engine fuel pump or filter, the unit is also suitable for use in engineering and automotive workshops working on engine system components, or garages carrying out vehicle servicing.

The hand-held, battery powered DieselProve unit is supplied as part of a portable kit comprising measuring tubes, quick start guide and results reporting software.

Species diversity reduces chances of crop failure in algal biofuel systems
Ann Arbor MI (SPX) Jan 10, 2017
When growing algae in outdoor ponds as a next-generation biofuel, a naturally diverse mix of species will help reduce the chance of crop failure, according to a federally funded study by University of Michigan researchers. Algae-derived biocrude oil is being studied as a potential renewable-energy alternative to fossil fuels. U-M ecologist Bradley Cardinale and his colleagues found that gr ... read more
