Why Fuel Testing?
How clean is the diesel fuel that you’re relying on? Never assume fuel quality is not an issue. If you’re not using diesel fuel test kits on a regular basis, you probably don’t have any idea what kind of condition your diesel fuel is actually in. Change that today by investing in test kits for diesel fuel from Dieselcraft. Our kits are designed to test for the presence of microbes and water in diesel fuel so that you’ll know whether or not you have to worry about bacteria, mold, and more affecting your fuel supply as well as your diesel engines and its fuel injectors.
Dieselcraft can supply your company with a wide range of diesel fuel test kits. From the relatively straightforward DS-1 Test Kit that will check for bacteria in your diesel fuel to the more advanced FCT-100 Diesel Fuel Water Content & Fuel Clarity Test that tests diesel fuel, biodiesel blends, and even heating oil, all our tests are easy to use and will provide you with real-time results in 5 minutes or less, in most cases. They include all the supplies and instructions you’ll need to look for microbes and water in diesel fuel.
If your company has stored diesel fuel, it’s a good idea to use diesel fuel test kits on it every 90 days to make sure water hasn’t found a way to get into it. You should also get into the habit of using test kits on fuel deliveries to make sure there aren’t microbes and water in diesel fuel before you accept it. It’ll help you avoid a headache later and allow you to steer clear of using diesel fuel that could potentially have bacteria, mold, fungus, or even dangerous asphaltenes in it.
