Hi folks,

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce some products from Dexsil that you may find useful in your adventures with biodiesel.

First, we have our FAME Check test kits. These kits were designed to quantify the amount of biodiesel in diesel fuel blends on the percent scale. For those of you doing your own blending, in cold weather or for performance optimization, these kits will serve as an accurate and cost effective means of checking your blend. Maybe you haven't taken the dive into making your own biodiesel, but want to know exactly what you’re are purchasing and putting into your tank. These kits will help you to achieve these goals. They are available in 10% by volume and 20% by volume versions, with a multiplication factor available for range extension on the 20% kit.

Next, we have our Titra-Lube TAN test kits. According to ASTM specifications for quality B100, biodiesel must contain no more than 0.5 TAN units (mg KOH/g) total acid. This kit is designed to test biodiesel for total acid number from 0-2 TAN units. Make sure that the biodiesel that you are making is of the highest quality possible, and doesn’t contain excessive acid.

Finally, I’d like to mention Dexsil’s HyrdroSCOUT water quantification system. The HydroSCOUT Analyzer System quantifies water in biodiesel quickly and easily. The HydroSCOUT method incorporates the standard reaction of water with calcium hydride to produce one mole of hydrogen for every mole of water. The hand-held HydroSCOUT meter measures the hydrogen pressure and mathematically converts it to ppm of water in the sample. The easy to use meter auto calibrates and performs quality control checks to minimize false negative reporting and ensure accuracy. HydroSCOUT reagents are premeasured and sealed in glass ampules for safe use and consistent results. Analysis takes less than 5 minutes.
