FIJI JF - FAME in Jet Instrument

Part Number SA5000-2

IP 583 | ASTM D7797 - Determination of the fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) content of aviation turbine fuel (AVTUR) with fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) Rapid screening method

The patented Fame In Jet Instrument (FIJI) has been developed to offer the industry a rapid and easy check on parts per million (ppm or mg/kg) levels of FAME in aviation fuel using test method IP 583.

FIJI uniquely utilises state of the art Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) technology and a patented sample preparation system which allows FAME detection accuracy down to the 10mg/kg level.

FIJI can be used as a field or lab based screening tool to give a quick indication of possible FAME contamination that may then necessitate further investigations. The instrument can be used to prevent expensive testing and avoid costly delays of fuel release.

A Multi-Product version of FIJI is available to measure Distillate & Residual Fuels as well as Jet - SA5200-0

Existing users of FIJI Jet can upgrade to enable measurement of FAME in Distillate & Residual Fuels in accordance with ASTM D7963 using SA5050-0.

The FIJI instrument is robust, extremely simple to use and is fully automatic so no specialist operator training is involved. Tests require less than 50ml of sample and typically take under 20 minutes. Results are presented in mg/kg units together with an optional traffic light system for flagging FAME contamination levels of the fuel. By comparison current analytical tests can take many hours, require complex equipment and demand high skill levels.

Using a unique sample preparation module the sample is pumped at a controlled flow rate though a proprietary disposable cartridge. The sample components are spectrally analysed by the FTIR and a result is displayed in mg/kg and a graphical spectrum is also shown.

The system is self-cleaning so no solvents are required. After each test the cartridge is simply and easily replaced and the instrument is immediately ready for the next sample.

Please note: Start up kit SA5001-0 is required for initial operation.
