Will your fuel be suitable for use in an emergency? The diesel fuel in emergency generators and fire pumps can degrade, become contaminated, or clog injectors. The turn-over rate is low for most diesel fuel supplies since the engines are usually only tested for 1 or 2 hours each month.
Emergency diesel supplies should be monitored on a semi-annual basis to ensure the fuel is of a quality to meet your critical needs. Microbial contamination is a very common issue in diesel fuel.
We analyze diesel fuel samples with one or all of the following tests: water contamination in ppm, corrosion and contaminant metals, viscosity, flash point, microbial contamination, copper strip corrosion, specific and API Gravity, sediment by filtration, and microscopic examination for algae, gum, and corrosion. We also manage the outsourcing of sulfur in ppm.
