Top Performer in Portable Fuel Analysis

The MINISCAN IR VISION is a high speed, compact and robust FTIR fuel analyzer for the comprehensive and automatic measurement of gasoline, jet and diesel fuels. The analyzer is configured to measure more than 100 fuel parameters and components for fuel blending, for quality inspection and to check compliance with fuel specifications directly at the point of sale.

100+ Preconfigured Parameters measured
Compound Analysis is performed according to the international standards ASTM D5845 for oxygenates, ASTM D6277 and EN 238 for Benzene and EN 14078 for Biodiesel blends. A built-in temperature regulated density meter allows for exact determination and stability of fuel density. Octane and Cetane Number, Distillation, Vapor Pressure and other fuel properties are automatically determined from the full IR spectrum using Partial Least Square (PLS) analysis and advanced chemometric models following ASTM E1655. Several thousand data points are used to achieve best prediction accuracy.

Data based on real samples collected and analyzed by SGS®!
For predicted properties, MINISCAN IR VISION operates calibration data, that has to adhere to the strictest quality standards. As a unique feature the instrument is equipped with a database of samples that have been collected and analysed by SGS!

High Quality Portable Technology
MINISCAN IR Vision is unmatched in its class of portable fuel analyzers. The thermoelectric temperature regulation of the instrument´s filling system, measuring cells and integrated density meter maximises accuracy in measuring volume and mass percent of fuel compounds.

Robust for Field Use
Durability makes the instrument ideal for the challenges encountered during field or mobile testing. The MINISCAN IR Vision incorporates Grabner´s proven, robust and bubble free metal filling system. The instrument is protected by the shock and vibration tested Vision platform housing. The double interferometer is mounted with a self aligning mirror system, that allows automatic correction of intensity shifts after a rough drive over a bumpy road. A robust, 10” full color industrial touchscreen guarantees highest visibilty and ease of use even under rough environmental conditions. For field use, the instrument can be run with a 12V car adapter.
