Will your fuel be suitable for use in an emergency? The diesel fuel in emergency generators and fire pumps can degrade, become contaminated, clog injectors, and the engine won’t fire. 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 emergency needs.
Our Diesel Fuel Analysis package tests for corrosion and contaminant metals, viscosity, flash point, copper strip corrosion, Karl Fischer water titration, specific and API Gravities, sediment by filtration, bacteria and a microscopic visual check for algae and gum. If the sample results show a higher than 1A copper strip corrosion, we conduct a sulfur analysis to ensure the fuel meets low sulfur requirements.
