Diesel

Diesel fuel is the main source of energy for transportation companies and industrial corporations operating large mobile and stationary machineries.

For these industries, fuel quality can make a difference between profitability and red ink.

Contaminated fuel is indeed a major cause of high fuel consumption, soot emissions, unburned fuel, fume odor and increased fuel costs. Worse, contaminants clog the fuel filters, fuel lines and injector nozzles, causing engine malfunctions, ultimately leading to higher maintenance costs, reduced machine useful life and catastrophic failure.

Fuel Testing (See our September 2013 to December 2013 Newsletters)

Tribologik Laboratories provide a full scope of diesel fuel testing services to assess fuel quality and environmental compliance, e.g. : sulphur content in diesel fuel, which is a matter of compliance with U.S. EPA and Environment Canada’s standards on air pollution. (See our September 2015 Newsletter).

Our tests are designed to help fuel and fuel system managers taking appropriate preventive or corrective action.
