Understand your fuel within minutes with onboard test kits
Environmental concerns are pushing for regulations to reduce sulphur emission levels from vessels, which again drives changes to marine fuels. With that comes a new set of challenges and operational complexity. Are you in control of your fuel?
Diesel fuel will help you stay compliant in the ECA zone, but can be prone to water in oil which can lead to corrosion and even worse, bacterial growth which can result in failure of a ship’s engine and power generators.
Lower heavy fuel quality tends to be more unstable and incompatible which leads to sludge, which in fact is loss of fuel that can be burnt as good as normal fuel.
So how do you stay in control? In just minutes, test kits allow you to understand your fuel better and minimize your operational risk:
- Test kits can be used onboard at any time – there is no need to send samples ashore and wait for 4 – 6 days to get the lab test results
- They are easy and safe to use. No training or special skills required
- Take corrective action immediately to rectify a problem
- In minutes you can prevent sludge deposits, eliminate failure of fuel handling systems and reduce costly combustion related engine damage
We have established a range of fuel test kits to help you control your fuel.
