SSD7400 Dual Digital Counter

New for 2019! As technology progresses, modern solutions to dated equipment not only becomes more user-friendly but frequently more economical. Continuing our efforts to simplify and modernize the testing environments of gasoline, a dual digital counter was developed. It is our attempt to provide a drop-in, modern alternative for existing dual digital counters, now made […]


SSD7200 Digital Temperature Controller

New for 2019! As technology progresses, modern solutions to dated equipment not only becomes more user-friendly, but frequently more economical. Continuing our efforts to simplify and modernize the testing environments of gasoline, a digital temperature controller was developed. It is our attempt to provide a drop-in, modern alternative for existing temperature controllers. Digital Temperature Controller […]


Digital Dual Hour Meter

New for 2019! A critical piece of equipment on Octane engine consoles is the hour meter. It tracks the life of the engine and allows operators to perform timely maintenance procedures and judge the overall life expectancy of the engine equipment. Modern alternatives are required to provide longevity for the engine console. Two 6-digit hour […]


501-C Potentiometer Linearity

“A chain is no stronger than its weakest link.”This is especially true within the scientific environment that is the knock engine lab. Every effort is made to improve the quality of results that are reported by a respective lab. All the training and maintenance procedures that have been implemented and completed may only achieve a […]


Dual hour meters: Analogue Vs Quartz

Older Engine timers do not contain a timekeeping oscillator such as a pendulum or balance wheel, but instead counts the oscillations of the AC utility current from its power source to keep time. It consists of a small AC synchronous motor, which turns the clock’s dial through a reduction gear train. The motor contains electromagnets […]


Laboratory Barometric References

A barometer is a scientific instrument used to measure air pressure. Pressure tendency can forecast short term changes in the weather. Many measurements of air pressure are used within surface weather analysis to help find surface troughs, high-pressure systems, and frontal boundaries.Barometers and pressure altimeters (the most basic and common type of altimeter) are essentially […]


Humidifying Intake Air Tower

StanCo Scientific Humidifying Intake Air Tower with DewTrak II-MO™ Control We have extensive experience with closed-loop cooling systems in other instrumentation types. We took that knowledge and applied it to carburetor cooling issues to use with Octane engines. To further meet the ASTM requirements, a heavy-duty vaporizer was introduced to ensure that the air stream […]


Octane Interface Panel

Monitoring engine temperatures and pressures while recording data for Research and Motor Octane Number methods can be a challenge. Manually collecting and recording the data to complete an octane rating of a fuel is a process that can take time. And any mistakes can result in loss of time and money. The Octane Interface Panel […]


Digital Knockmeter

Digital replacement for analog knockmeters for use with Octane Rating Units Analog knockmeters have limitations. Their range is limited between 0 and 100 and the linearity from meter to meter is questionable after our research. There is human interaction with an analog meter to determine where the needle lies along the sweep of the range. […]


The What, When, and Why of “Spread” By Thomas Grant

What is Spread? Spread – The sensitivity of the analog detonation meter expressed in Knockmeter divisions per octane number. What are the major components required to obtain Spread Sensor, D-1 pick-up, (Pressure transducer) Signal conditioning instrument – Detonation meter, 501 series Display – Knock meter (Weston or Metermod) Internal combustion engine The What, When, and […]
