Derived Cetane Number

CID 510 – Cetane Ignition Delay by Herzog BAC. Accurate analysis of Derived Cetane Number (DCN) is an important tool for diesel and biodiesel fuel blenders and refineries to maintain fuel consistency and quality. The CID 510 is in perfect correlation to ASTM D613, EN 16715, ISO 5165, IP 41 and IP 615. The patented test method ASTM D7668 is approved as standard and officially listed in diesel specifications: ASTM D975, ASTM D6751, ASTM D7467 and EN 590.

Thermogravimetry (TGA) and Differential Thermal Analyzers (DTA)

The DTG-60 series from Shimadzu uses a parallel guide differential top pan balance mechanism that simultaneously measures temperature changes and mass changes between an inert reference and sample. The differential balance in the DTG-60 series is of the Roberval style, where the sample and reference are located above the balance at the top of two separate detectors. This design prevents changes in sensitivity from thermal expansion, enables high-precision thermogravimetric measurements, and minimizes baseline drifts caused by buoyancy or convection during the heating process. The advanced balance, high-quality detectors, and excellent furnace temperature distribution combine to provide a measurable mass change of ±500 mg, a mass readability of 0.1 µg, a maximum sample quantity of 1 g, and a measurable differential thermal range of ±1,000 µV.
