Online PR News – 16-July-2011 – – A new White Paper published by Wilks Enterprise presents the advantages and cost savings for on-site analysis with a portable mid-infrared based analyzer, such as the Wilks InfraCal Ethanol Blend Analyzer, to help fuel blenders quickly flag out-of-spec product and ensure the final blend meets specifications. This is important as the use of ethanol as a gasoline additive has increased dramatically over the past few years and will likely continue to increase. For fuel blenders, this means an added challenge to avoid an incorrect blend that could lead to regulatory fines, loss of customer confidence and damage to equipment.

Portable Infrared analyzers offer a simple, accurate and low cost solution to on-site blend testing which may occur at the blending rack. The resulting costs of an incorrect blend can far out way the modest cost of an on-site ethanol blend analyzer. With many already in use at petroleum terminals and by regulatory agencies, the InfraCal Ethanol Blend Analyzer has proven to be a reliable tool to ensure fuel blend accuracy.
