Fuel Marking System Selection and Implementation An Indian Experience 2004-28-0090
The fuel marking is widely accepted method to check the fuel integrity at any stage in the large and complex road-fuel supply-chain. Not any longer these sophisticated technologies are employed in the developed countries only, governments and fuel marketing companies in developing countries are increasingly leveraging these systems to control the supply chain to ensure fuel integrity to the consumers.
Over a decade of experience in this field enforces the value of on-spot, accurate, and user-friendly testing systems due to lag between sampling and laboratory testing and hence complexity of corrective action.
In association with IOC R&D Center and oil companies, Rohm and Haas Company demonstrated its accurate, quantitative and instrument based SpecTrace Technology and conducted a large scale field trial at HPCL’ Vashi terminal by marking Gasoline. This paper analyzes the parameters of system and technology selection, including the features of SpecTrace™ system, and results of the field trials at Vashi.
