April 28, 2020

Shanghai, China: Intertek Caleb Brett, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide and experts in qualitative and quantitative analytical assessment services to the oil and gas, chemical, and other commodities markets, announces the expansion of its testing capabilities in its Shanghai laboratory with a new Cetane Rating Unit capable of determining and certifying the ignition quality of diesel fuels.

The expansion comes as China’s government has stepped up its focus on a nation-wide fuel quality program to prevent and control air pollution for improving environmental and living standards.

To echo the strategy of China’s efforts, Intertek Caleb Brett’s new Cetane Rating Engine is the first digital unit in the region for its Shanghai laboratory.

Martin Liu, General Manager Intertek Caleb Brett China said “I am extremely excited by the acquisition of the new cetane engine, the only one of its kind anywhere in China. The new CFR F5 XCP engine puts Caleb Brett at the forefront of fuel testing technology and will support our customers now and into the future as China moves to cleaner and more efficient diesel engines”.

With this new equipment providing a stable, accurate testing platform for defining the quality of diesel fuels, it will also help to ensure the integrity of the fuel supply chain from refinery to the pump and will support local oil majors and all independent refineries for assuring their fuel quality monitoring processes.
