The BWB SYN FUELS Flame Photometer

Reliable and accurate analysis of
all four atoms of interest

 

This powerful and growing global industry now has the attending facilities for Synthetic Fuels or Bio-Fuels production. For this derivative product BWB Technologies offers a hybridized Flame Photometer we have named Syn Fuels.

The BWB SYN FUELS Flame Photometer is the first and only 4 channel flame photometer with simultaneous detection and display of all 4 elements. A high quality and high performance instrument, the BWB SYN FUELS employs modern technology to improve both accuracy and stability while significantly reducing analysis time.

The fluid handling sections of the BWB SYN FUELS Flame Photometer
incorporate proprietary engineered thermoplastics that are highly chemically resistant to withstand the solvents encountered in Synthetic Fuels production facilities.

The majority of our Global clients purchase a BWB Sugar FES for the
beet or cane refining plant and the Syn Fuels FES for the bio-conversion plant site.  

For non Sugar processors embracing Syn Fuels, the BWB XP is typically the BWB FES of interest during the bio-conversion processes.
