Unlocking the Potential: CFR’s F1/F2 Octane Rating Unit

In the realm of evaluating and certifying the anti-knock properties of motor fuels, one name shines brighter than the rest—CFR® F1/F2 Octane Rating Unit. This global standard has been a beacon of excellence in the fuel testing arena since the release of the first CFR octane rating engines in 1929. Over the decades, CFR has stood shoulder to shoulder with the automotive and petroleum industries, continuously evolving its product line to empower fuel producers and engine manufacturers in creating seamlessly harmonized products.

Setting the Gold Standard: CFR F1/F2 Octane Rating Engines

The CFR F1/F2 octane rating engines set the benchmark for testing fuels according to various international standards, including ASTM D2699, ASTM D2700, IP 236, and IP 237. These engines form the backbone of a fully integrated fuel testing system, ensuring every critical parameter of an octane test is controlled for dependable results. Whether opting for a complete unit, an upgrade/conversion kit, or a genuine CFR service part, users can trust that the product has been meticulously crafted and rigorously tested to function seamlessly as an integrated solution for their operations.

Data Integrity Redefined with XCP Technology

The XCP Digital Control Panel takes data integrity to a new level by automatically capturing crucial information for each rating and presenting it in a user-friendly Excel-based report. This reduces the risk of manual recording errors. The XCP report includes KI values, Octane Numbers, environmental data, and KI vs. fuel level curves. Moreover, it seamlessly integrates into a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), ensuring test data is captured and processed without question.

Reliability in Design: A Legacy Since 1929

With a legacy stretching back to 1929, CFR Engines Inc. products have been the bedrock of reliability. This trustworthiness endures thanks to a continuous stream of well-designed system upgrades and product enhancements. Components such as the robust engine crankcase and cylinder/head are engineered for unparalleled operating life. With routine maintenance, CFR octane rating engines meet the rigorous demands of today’s fuel testing environment, delivering a true engine-based Octane Number.

Precision Redefined through Modern Instrument Control

Equipped with XCP Technology, the CFR F1/F2 Octane Rating Unit employs digital instrumentation to record and process critical aspects of system operation and performance. On-board barometric pressure adjustments, increased automation, a broad octane meter range, and precise control of engine intake air enhance overall precision, making measurements more accurate and dependable.

Cost Savings with One System Flexibility

The CFR F1/F2 Octane Rating System offers unmatched flexibility and cost savings. With simple component changes and push-button control, users can effortlessly switch between any of the four test procedures outlined in ASTM Methods D2699 or D2700. This versatility translates into resource optimization, faster test transitions, reduced operator training, and enhanced repeatability – all from a single system.
