Supercharge aviation gasoline testing from SGS – ensure the quality of Avgas with ASTM D909 testing.

Oil Rig

Supercharge testing, which is used to determine fuel performance in high-powered aircraft engines, is often needed to ensure the quality of aviation gasoline. Cooperative Fuel Research (CFR) test engines, or “knock engines” are used to obtain octane numbers for research, motor and lean ratings. Compressed air is used to supercharge the knock engine. Air pressure and the air/fuel ratio are varied and correlated to known octane reference fuels. We provide industry compliant supercharge Avgas testing, using the ASTM D909 method for testing spark ignition aviation gasolines.
