Experience the Future of Fuel Quality Assessment with CFR® F1/F2 Octane Rating Unit

20 / 100

In the ever-evolving world of fuel quality assessment, one name stands out as the global benchmark for precision and reliability – the CFR® F1/F2 Octane Rating Unit. From gasoline to alternative fuels, this cutting-edge technology has been setting the industry standard for certifying anti-knock characteristics since its inaugural release back in 1929. At the forefront of fuel rating, CFR continuously collaborates with automotive and petroleum industries to enhance their product line, providing fuel producers and engine manufacturers with the tools they need to optimize product performance.

Unveiling the Ultimate Fuel Testing Solution

A comprehensive CFR Engines Inc. octane fuel testing system comprises four key elements, meticulously designed to seamlessly integrate and deliver dependable results. With the Engine Air Control System, the F1/F2 octane rating engine, XCP™ Technology, and a CFR® exhaust surge tank, every essential parameter for a successful octane test is managed with precision. Whether you opt for a complete unit, an upgrade/conversion kit, or a genuine CFR service part, rest assured that every product is engineered and tested by CFR to function as a fully integrated solution for your operation. With the CFR octane rating system, you can trust it to do its job, allowing you to focus on your other critical tasks.

Data Integrity Redefined with XCP Technology

Thanks to the XCP Digital Control Panel, crucial information for each rating is automatically captured and presented in an Excel-based report, eliminating the need for manual data recording and reducing calculation errors. The standard XCP report includes KI values, Octane Numbers, environmental data (temperatures, pressures, barometer, and EACS humidity), and KI vs. fuel level curves. Plus, the XCP can be seamlessly integrated into a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). This automated data capture and processing instills the confidence needed to defend ratings without any room for doubt.

Reliability that Stands the Test of Time

Since its inception in 1929, CFR Engines Inc. products have garnered the trust of thousands of users. This reliability has been consistently upheld through a series of well-designed system upgrades and product enhancements. CFR octane and cetane testing systems, including the robust engine crankcase and cylinder/head, are engineered for exceptional operating life. With basic maintenance, CFR octane rating engines can reliably endure the demands of today’s fuel testing environment, delivering a genuine engine-based Octane Number.

Precision through Modern Instrument Control

The CFR F1/F2 Octane Rating Unit, integrated with XCP Technology, relies on digital instrumentation to record and process essential aspects of system operation and performance. This includes on-board barometric pressure adjustments, increased automation, a broad octane meter range, and control over engine intake air. This leads to more accurate measurements controlled by an intuitive interface, ultimately resulting in enhanced precision.

Cost-Efficiency Through Unparalleled Versatility

With its standard product offerings, a CFR F1/F2 Octane Rating System delivers unmatched flexibility and cost savings. A few component changes and push-button controls allow users to seamlessly switch between any of the four test procedures outlined in ASTM Methods D2699 or D2700. These cost savings manifest in resource utilization, faster test transitions, reduced operator training, and improved test repeatability, all achieved with a single system.

Additional Key Features

XCP integrated safety monitoring system and shutdown protections, including power loss, low oil pressure, overheating, and electrical overload.

User-friendly touch-screen HMI panel for unit operation and octane rating tests.

Built-in prompts guide operators through the test procedures, enhancing consistency.

Simple design of the thermal siphon, ebullient, recirculating-type cooling condenser ensures stable operation.

XCP Technology is intuitive and user-friendly, reducing training time for octane and cetane testing.

Digital knock meter displays actual knock intensity value, eliminating the need for visual interpretation of an analog meter.

Electronic maintenance log records vital information for future reference.

Non-contact laser sensor accurately measures cylinder height and displays results on-screen, providing precise test results.

Synchronous/reluctance motor powers up the unit and maintains constant speed.

Electronic on-board barometer automatically corrects cylinder height for barometric pressure changes.

Environmentally friendly resistance temperature devices (RTDs) manage critical temperature variables.

Built-in diagnostic feature simplifies troubleshooting when maintenance is required.

On-screen operations and maintenance manuals for easy access.
