Moisture analysis of ethanol-hydrocarbon blends by Vis-NIR spectroscopy

Moisture analysis of ethanol-hydrocarbon blends by Vis-NIR spectroscopy

Water damages both fuel tanks and engine parts. Rust and corrosion in the tank create hard particulates that are passed along by the fuel, causing engine wear. Component life is also shortened by water etching, erosion, cavitation, and spalling. It can also cause indirect damage through microbial growth and fuel...
