Spectro Scientific Unveils New Portable Fuel Dilution Meter

Noria news wires

Spectro Scientific recently announced the release of its Q6000 Fuel Dilution Meter (FDM). The Q6000 can be used in the laboratory or in the field to provide rapid, accurate measurements of fuel contamination in engine oil.

Developed in collaboration with the U.S. Navy, the meter detects contamination in less than two minutes, allowing operators to make immediate decisions.

The device's unique "fang" design helps to ensure repeatability. A small sample size in a disposable vial is all that's required. The touchscreen and audio prompts guide operators through the testing process. Analysis results are displayed in percent fuel.

The headspace vapor sampling approach eliminates the need to heat fuel-laden samples and does not require the use of solvents.

The portable instrument is well-suited for fleet maintainers looking to identify and fix the cause of excess fuel in their engines as quickly as possible.

"The Q6000 FDM is a powerful tool for diagnosis and maintenance in diesel engines," explains Spectro Scientific's Bob Wopperer. "The Q6000 FDM is yet another advancement in Spectro Scientific's mission to drive lab-quality testing into the field, where it can have the greatest impact for our customers."
