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.

Why Haltermann Solutions?

Haltermann does not use a refining process to produce specialty fuels. Instead, we procure and blend a variety of refinery streams along with specialty chemical and other hydrocarbon streams to achieve the often demanding specifications requested by our customers. This blending strategy allows us a tremendous degree of flexibility and agility to meet those requirements. It further allows us to achieve superior batch-to-batch repeatability.

To best meet our customers’ needs while achieving a high degree of service and agility, we have established a network of manufacturing sites, each having very unique capabilities. We have sites located in both Michigan and Texas. However, this hasn’t always been the case. Until 2007, most of our fuels were produced in Texas at our Channelview facility. At that point, we made a deliberate shift in our manufacturing strategy to develop a much larger footprint in the Michigan area, an ideal location given the close proximity to a majority of our customers. This move has not only resulted in better service but also lower overall freight costs for many of our customers.

Haltermann Solutions Manufacturing Strategy

In Michigan, we utilize three facilities. First, we utilize a terminal where we produce our high-volume, inventoried fuels that were discussed previously. We have the ability to ship railcar and truckload quantities of fuel from this location. A second facility specializes in producing smaller quantity, custom made-to-order fuels. While truck load quantities can be produced and shipped from this location, the more common quantities are drums, totes and pails. We utilize yet a third Michigan facility for storage of finished drummed fuels.

We also maintain a manufacturing presence in Texas where we have three sites for our San Antonio based customers and other regional clientele.

As mentioned before, having multiple sites gives Haltermann Solutions a tremendous amount of agility in responding to customer needs. We select the assets needed for a specific fuel based on customer locale, volume, fuel type and logistics requirements.

It is important to mention our other division’s capabilities for custom chemical processing. Their world-class capabilities include large scale distillation and fractional distillation, reactive distillation, fixed-bed hydrogenation, oligomerization, esterfication and transesterfication reactions, aldol condensations and isobutylene reactions. These capabilities allow us to manufacture unique feed stocks, in-house, when required.
