FAME in Jet Fuel Testing: Fast, Precise, Portable

ERAJET FAME is a rugged and truly portable stand-alone NDIR spectrometer for the ultra-fast and easy determination of all types of FAME in jet fuel. The fully automated analyzer easily determines FAME in jet fuel with lab-grade precision in excellent correlation to international IR (ASTM D7797, IP583) as well as GC (IP585, IP590) standards.

Maximum Precision for Lab and Field Use

There is a risk of FAME contamination during jet fuel transportation resulting from poor pipeline cleaning or from a previous fuel transportation process. With a repeatability of only r ≤ 4 mg/kg and a reproducibility of R ≤ 6 mg/kg ERAJET FAME measures with lab-grade precision over a wide measurement range of 10 to 250 mg/kg (ppm) for AVTUR. The ultra-light and rugged metal housing with its small footprint makes ERAJET FAME equally suited for lab applications and field use.

Ultra-Fast and Fully Automated Jet Fuel Testing

With an unrivalled measurement time of only 5 min ERAJET FAME is the fastest FAME in jet fuel analyzer on the market. With its easy to use interface and the fully automated measurement including the sample introduction, ERAJET FAME is the perfect solution even for untrained operators. Cleaning and rinsing of the instrument are an easy task as no special solvent is required.


2-in-1: FAME in Jet Fuel and ERADENS XS

With the temperature-controlled x-oscillating metal U-tube technology inside, ERADENS XS measures density with 5-digit precision. ERADENS XS is also available for the direct connection with ERAJET FAME. With only 1.45 kg of weight, ERADENS XS measures density in full compliance with ASTM D4052. Connected to ERAJET FAME it allows the simultaneous high precision measurement of density and FAME content of AVTUR.

Measurement Principle

ERAJET FAME is a portable, stand-alone FAME in jet fuel tester, using the latest fully automated non-dispersive IR transmission technology in combination with two absorption cartridges.
First, the test specimen is passed through a cartridge which allows the introduction of only non-polar components into the analyzer. The second cartridge selectively absorbs the more polar contaminants, such as oxidation products, and FAME or other esters are passed through without retention.

FIC – FAME Interference Check TM

The IR absorption is measured with two independent detectors, each featuring individual optical filters for different wavelengths. Both observed wavelength ranges and the corresponding intensities are associated with the measured concentration of FAME in the sample, and the result is reported as “FAME in Jet Fuel”.

ERAJET FAME applies the unique FAME Interference Check (FIC™) by evaluating the intensity ratio of both detectors. For other contaminants, such as plasticizers or other esters, this ratio will be different compared to FAME, and in this case, the result is marked as “Total Esters in Jet Fuel”.

This superior IR measurement technique in combination with two absorption cartridges guarantees the highest accuracy and reliability, making ERAJET FAME the most efficient FAME in Jet Fuel analyzer on the market.

ERAJET FAME - FAME Interference Check


The ultra-light, portable and rugged metal housing with its small footprint makes ERAJET FAME equally suited for lab applications and field use. The low weight makes it perfect for straightforward on-site use even in remote locations with limited access to technical infrastructure. Each measurement offers lab-grade results at any time. ERAJET FAME is mainly used at airports, terminals, military facilities, and governmental authorities.
