NEW METHOD PRODUCES ACCURATE OCTANE BLENDING VALUES
Alwin Muller Consultant Worth, Germany The solution of a linear equation system gives individualized octane deviations from the ideal blend values. The method needs little data, produces simpler correlations, and is more accurate than others because it is highly adaptable. The deviations calculated by this method are characteristic of each gasoline component and grade. The values are derived directly from original refinery data and therefore reflect refinery-specific situations.
