DIESEL FUEL ANALYSIS

Compliance First

Tribologik® Laboratories provide a full scope of diesel fuel testing services to assess fuel quality and environmental compliance with Government regulations, e.g.: Sulfur content (See our September 2015 Newsletter):

  • U.S. EPA: ASTM D975 fuel analysis standard.

  • Environment Canada CGSB 3.517 standard. on air pollution.

Complementary diesel fuel tests include:

  • Fuel Contamination Testing (See our September 2013 and December 2013 Newsletters). Contaminated fuel is a major cause of high fuel consumption, soot emissions, unburned fuel, fume odor and high fuel costs. Contaminants clog the fuel filters, fuel lines and injector nozzles, causing engine malfunction, higher maintenance costs, reduced machine life and catastrophic failure. (See our September 2016 Newsletter):

    • Water is the most frequent of all contaminants. Water can damage injector components and reduce the lubricity of the fuel, which can cause seizure of close tolerance components such as those found in modern high pressure injection systems

    • Fungus and bacteria are micro-organisms living in water. They deplete the energetic attributes of fuel and generate degradation products including hydrogen sulfide, which is likely to provoke seizure, block injectors and plug the filter.

    • Sediments and other solids can also plug the filter, decrease performance, cause failures, and damage engines.

  • Biodiesel Content: FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters) covers the determination of biodiesel content in diesel fuel. It is applicable to concentrations from 1 to 30 volume/% (See our September 2013 to December 2013 Newsletters).

Our Diesel fuel tests are available individually or in test packages.
