Phase Technology does it again – another “first” for the petroleum industry.
Phase Technology’s new JFA-70Xi jet fuel analyzer is the world’s first and only instrument that performs three crucial tests in one unit—freeze point, viscosity and density. And, it does it all in less than 15 minutes!
The JFA is also available as a 5-in-1 analyzer, adding cloud and pour point for diesel fuel. That makes it the most versatile analyzer in your lab!
The JFA-70Xi features a new, side loaded automatic sample injection port. There’s no longer a need to manually pipette. The analyzer always draws the precise amount of sample as required by the ASTM method.
The JFA is completely self-cleaning, without the need of solvents. Save time and hassle of cleaning, and avoid any risk of damage to the sample cup.
ASTM D1655 jet fuel specification now includes Phase Technology’s ASTM D7945,
as used in the JFA-70Xi jet fuel analyzer. Def-Stan 91-091 Issue 10 also includes D7945.
Freeze point, viscosity and density are three critical measurements for jet fuel. Freeze point affects fuel pumpability at low temperatures during flight. Viscosity has an effect on pumpability over the operating temperature range. Viscosity is important because it influences the droplet size and spray pattern of fuel that injected into the jet engines. It also affects pressure in the fuel system lines and the fuel pump. Density is a required measurement that is used in weight loading calculations for aircraft.
Phase Technology 70Xi series analyzers give you complete flexibility – choose the test options you need for a customized solution. Available JFA-70Xi configurations include:
