Haltermann Solutions™ Test and Reference Fuels

Test or reference gasoline or diesel fuels manufactured by Haltermann Solutions™ are made to very specific distillation and property specifications and therefore provide needed control and consistency required in test protocols.

Test and Reference

Haltermann Solutions™ Primary Reference Fuels (PRF)

Haltermann Solutions™ supplies a portfolio of high-purity Primary Reference Fuels (PRF). PRFs are required to determine the combustion quality of gasoline and diesel fuel. The key combustion parameter for gasoline is measured by determination of the octane number of the fuel while the combustion parameter for diesel is measured by the determination of cetane number. Both are measured in a Cooperative Fuel Research (CFR) engine.
