Fuel stability testing of long term bulk-storage fuels.
Bulk fuels stored for long periods of time can suffer from fuel storage degradation and contamination, resulting in serious fuel instability problems when eventually used in large back-up generators, jets, helicopters, propeller aircraft, ships, trains, and trucks.
Fuels stored for extended periods of time can suffer from polymerization, oxidation, emulsions, and bacterial and fungus infestations. These problems can form residues and gums. Ageing fuel residues and gums can cause serious problems with engines and fuel systems. Intertek fuel laboratories provide fuel quality monitoring programs, which identify ageing fuel degradation issues before those fuels are used. Fuel analysis helps clients identify potential problems and treat problematic fuels with additives to prevent or reduce further fuel deterioration.
