FIJI MF – FAME in MultiFuels – SA5200-0

The patented FIJI has been developed to offers a rapid and easy check on Parts Per Million (ppm or mg/kg) levels of FAME in aviation fuel, distillates, residuals, and gasoline.

FIJI uniquely utilizes FTIR (Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopy) technology and a patented sample preparation system which allows FAME detection accuracy down to the 10 mg/kg level.

FIJI can be used as a field or lab-based screening tool to give a quick indication of possible FAME contamination that may then necessitate further investigations. The instrument helps to prevent expensive testing and avoid costly delays of fuel release.

Methods: ASTM D1665, ASTM D7797, ASTM D7963, IP 583, DEF STAN 91-091, ISO 8217


  • 10-150ppm (mg/kg) in Jet Fuels
  • 20 mg/kg to 20% in Distillate & Residual Fuels
  • Measures the presence of all FAME types C8 to C22
  • Approved for co-processed fuels
  • No hydrocarbon cleaning solvents required
  • Laboratory and field instrument
  • Suitable for untrained operators
  • Patent Approved

Ease of use:
The instrument is extremely simple to use and fully automatic, specialist operator training is not required.
The system is self-cleaning, no solvents are required. After each test, you simply replace the cartridge and the instrument is immediately ready for the next sample.

Enhanced test throughput:
Tests require less than 50 ml of sample and typically take under 20 minutes.
Results are presented in mg/kg units together with an optional traffic light system for flagging FAME contamination levels of the fuel.
By comparison, current analytical tests can take many hours, require complex equipment and demand high skill levels.

Precision and accuracy:
Using a unique sample preparation module the sample is pumped at a controlled flow rate through a proprietary disposable cartridge.
The sample components are analyzed by the FTIR and a result is displayed in mg/kg, a graphical spectrum is also shown.
