Diesel Fuel Testing
Diesel is one of the most widely used fuels all over the world. As the world is evolving at an exponential pace, industries across all realms have been utilizing diesel to power everything from diesel engines in ships, diesel engines in cars, diesel generators, diesel for agriculture, diesel for mining and construction equipment, etc. As diesel has become a backbone for the industry it is imperative that testing and analysis for the diesel fuel should be conducted to ensure it meets the quality standards, to minimize the risk of failure in equipment, increase efficiency and savings, and prevent any downtime of machinery.
Atlas Lab provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art Diesel Testing Program. The objective is two-fold, to test the samples to ensure that the quality is as per National & International specifications and spot any potential problems by analyzing the condition of the diesel fuel which could potentially cause harm to the health and operation of the machinery. The better the fuel quality the better the output and efficiency of the machinery. Atlas Lab tests various diesel oils such as LDO ( Light Diesel Oil ) and HFO ( Heavy Fuel Oil ) which are both processed from crude oil. As the international norms over the release of sulfur into the atmosphere have become more strict, our lab tests the diesel fuel to ensure the sulfur is within the required limits. We conduct various tests like water content, particle count, pour point, etc. to analyze the diesel fuel which directly impacts the efficiency and reliability of the machinery and nullifies any failures and unscheduled downtime.
Our lab is capable of testing and analysis of Marine Diesel Fuel, BS III / Euro 3 fuel, BS IV Fuel / Euro 4 Fuel, BS VI / Euro VI Fuel, ULSD ( Ultra Low sulfur diesel fuel). Atlas lab offers a complete solution for diesel fuel with quick and precise test results at a cost-effective price to clients on a global scale. Our tests are carried out by seasoned experts in the field of testing and analysis to provide precise solutions for your diesel oil management-related issues.
As per the standard operating procedure (SOP) and standard operating practice the samples have to be collected from the top, middle and bottom layers of the tank. These three layers have to be mixed to form a composite sample and sent for testing.
