Modern diesel engines require special cleanlines of the fuel. The bio-proportion in the fuel binds water on its own and thus acts as a favorable growth mucus and algae in the fuel tank and over time cause malfunctions, clogging filters, and even engine failure. In addition, over time, various contaminants can enter the fuel tank, which degrade the quality of the fuel and cause e.g. extra wear on engine, seals, injectors and fuel pump.
Regular fuel testing detects contaminants and potential microbial growth in a timely manner. In this case, stabilizing the condition of the fuel is still easy and serious damage is avoided.
We perform laser analyzes and microbial culture on fuels ( diesel, fuel oils, aviation fuel).
Laser analysis (according to ISO 4406:1999) to determine size and number of particles in the fuel and the RH% (relative humidity) of the water.
Microbial culture (according to the IP613 / 14 method) to detect possible microbial contamination of fuel ("diesel bacteria infection") and its severity.
You can order both tests or just one of them.
If there are many objects to be analyzed, laser analysis can also be performed in the field, at the customer´s premises.
Profitability depends only on a thin film of oil. Don´t risk compromising this protection.
The most common causes of failure of hydraulic and transmission components are oil contaminants, water content, and deterioration.
The analysis performed on the oil is an effective and inexpensive tool for proactive condition monitoring of equipment and prevention of unexpected machine downtime.
By comissioning oil analysis on a regular basis, considerable amounts of maintenance costs can be saved. The oil change interval can be maximized and unnecessary oil changes are completely eliminated. Premature oil aging is detected in a timely manner and there is no time for dirt to form in the system, which would cause malfunctions or breakages in the valves and pumps.
A plain language report of the analyzes and any necessary measures are always sent by e-mail in pdf format.
