Fiji FAME in Jet Instrument

Product Description

Part Number SA5000-2

IP 583 “Determination of the fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) content of aviation turbine fuel (AVTUR) with Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy – 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 FTIR (Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopy) technology and a patented sample preparation system which allows FAME detection accuracy down to the 20mg/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.
