For almost 20 years PAC has been at the forefront of fuel analysis with its robust PetroSpec products. By using powerful and more versatile FT-IR technology, we are now combining the best of our GS PPA, TD PPA and QuickSpec capabilities into one analyser, and adding many more features. OptiFuel is not a mere replacement of our legacy products; it is the best FT-IR dedicated fuel analyser in the market.

The new OptiFuel can measure physical & chemical properties of Gasoline, Diesel or Jet Fuel in seconds, all in one system, with a one push of a button. With its vibration-resistant advanced cube corner design and humidity-resistant ZnSe optics, OptiFuel provides high and reliable performance crucial for quality control checks. The spectral shift is virtually non-existent, due to its extreme temperature controlled laser reference design. Its calibration is quickly done through a one-step transfer/cloning procedure and it lasts for years. Preventive maintenance can be easily done on-site.


OptiFuel is delivered from the factory with high quality chemometric models, built using hundreds of real samples acquired from top oil & gas producers across the globe. Thanks to its advanced FT-IR technology and user-friendly GUI, the opportunities for future expansion of these models are endless.

Optifuel comes with an industry leading 10-year warranty on its modern Michelson interferometer and a 5-year warranty on its IR light source, so users can rest assured that they will have near zero downtime on the analyser.
