AFIDA – Indicated Cetane Number Analyser – SA6000-0

AFIDA is a revolutionary development providing you with a fully automated way of determining Indicated Cetane Number (ICN) of diesel and diesel related fuels. The AFIDA can analyse multiple samples in sequence and selects the samples using the 36-place autosampler. Only a small sample volume of 40 ml is required per test with a short analysis time of approximately 25 minutes.

The analyser uses a Constant Volume Combustion Chamber (CVCC) and incorporates a unique and patented high pressure injection system that generates fine fuel droplets similar to modern common rail injectors in most diesel engines.

An ultra robust temperature controlled piezo electric injector provides rapid switching and highly repeatable fuel metering, offering you improved performance and consistency when compared with solenoid controlled injectors and pintle type nozzles.
