Core Laboratories offers octane analysis equipment for both on-line and laboratory applications. On-line analysis systems
are offered in both single-engine and multiple-engine configurations. Laboratory analyzers are offered in a single-engine
We also provides services such as the Standard Fuel Program for peer review of fuel octane rating results.

On-Line Blending Analyzers
On-line blending analyzers are designed to be integrated into the blending units within the refinery itself. They interpret
data from the blenders, respond to commands by the operators themselves, and send instruction to the blenders for optimization
of the blends. Through proper use of the On-Line Blending Analyzers, a refinery can maintain efficiency and precision in
the blend control.
Core Laboratories provides a full range of support equipment including laboratory analyzers, intake air refrigeration units,
and reference fuel boards are designed to facilitate the testing and rating of sample fuels. In coordination, they provide a
consistent, reliable platform upon which the laboratory may test its component and final blends.
Standard Fuel Program
The standard fuel program is designed to allow refineries to certify their blends using a cooperative of up to 30 participants.
The samples are distributed to the participating members, they are analyzed using both ASTM Methods D2699 and D2700 for
Octane Determination, and their results are submitted. Compiled reports are distributed through the member group so the
originating refinery has a common consensus on the rating of the fuel, and the participating members have an analysis of
how their engines rate in comparison with other refineries in the cooperative.
Technicians are available to provide customer support in any manner related to CFR engines, maintenance, operation, or to any of
the support products offered. On-site as well as off-site services are available for site evaluation, systems maintenance, as
well as training services.
