Portable fuel analyzer

System on Module

Grabner Instruments, a subsidiary of AMETEK, Inc. is known as one of the most innovative companies world wide developing and manufacturing automatic petroleum testing equipment.

Grabner Instruments’ success is based on the development of highly innovative, fully automated portable, rugged and easy to operate fuel and oil analyzers for highly accurate quality control.

The Application

The Grabner Instruments MINISCAN IRXpert portable fuel analyzer is used for fully automatic, rapid, and accurate fuel measurement of gasoline, jet, and diesel fuels.  Full information on fuel composition is determined by analyzing more than 40 different components. The device also determines crucial parameters for fuel quality such as octane rating, cetane rating, vapor pressure, and distillation properties.  An extremely compact FTIR (Fourier Transformed Infrared) spectrometer, integrated electronic densimeter and sophisticated mathematics are used to analyze the spectrum. The instrument is pre-configured for fuel analysis, and the portable analyzer offers measurements “straight out of the box”, rendering the MINISCAN IRXpert an effective and efficient instrument, even for users without petrochemical expertise.


The Solution

The MINISCAN IRXpert is powered by the phyCORE-PXA270 System on Module and a custom Carrier Board for break-out of I/O, developed by PHYTEC.

The collaboration with PHYTEC helped us carry out a technically complex development project with a comparatively small development team within a very short time period. The phyCORE SOM and a Development Kit enabled us to quickly develop a first prototype. For series production, we will use a baseboard that has been designed especially for us. In retrospect, I think that the combination of PHYYTEC hardware and software know-how was of great value to us
