Fuel that is stored for long periods of time should be tested on a regular basis to make sure it will perform when needed. This basic package includes the top 3 critical tests for contaminants and fuel degradation.
The following tests are included with this order:
D6304 Karl Fischer Water – Measures entrained water. The presence of water can prematurely create corrosion and wear, reduce lubrication, plug filters, and create an environment for microbial growth.
D7463 Microbial Contamination – Uses reflective light to quantify the presence of bacteria or other microorganisms in fuel.
D6468 Thermal Stability – Provides an indication of thermal-oxidative stability or level of degradation of fuel.
D7371 Biodiesel Content – Measures the biodiesel content in a diesel fuel blend.
