New Range Extension for FAME CHECK kit!
It was great speaking with members of the biodiesel industry at the National Biodiesel Conference in Tampa last week. A question that came up multiple times, was whether or not we have a test kit for blends greater than B20.
Well, the industry asked, and we answered!
When encountering biodiesel blends potentially greater than B20, one can extend the range of the FAME CHECK® 0-20% test kit with minimal change to the test procedure.
Please specify, when ordering, that your testing needs may require testing concentrations greater than 20% biodiesel. Additional syringes can be provided to supplement the standard syringes already supplied in your kit boxes. These supplemental syringes have a smaller pre-set sample size. Use these syringes, instead of those provided in your kit boxes, and run the test as normal. When reading the “Percent Biodiesel” on the titration burette, at the end of the test, simply multiply by 3.3 to calculate your results.
For example, if when using this range extension procedure the final titration burette reads 10 %, you would simply multiply by 3.3 to find an actual result of 33%.
Note, that this procedure allows the use of the FAME CHECK® 0-20% test kit from approximately 5-60% biodiesel.

Couple of orders shipped out yesterday with the new high range option. We always strive to fulfill the customer's needs.
These should be very popular where bland ratios are high, so it is no surprise that one of our customers in California will be receiving some!
