Fuel Testing

Microbial proliferation and the presence of contaminants in fuel and fuel components can cause serious problems such as under-performance of machinery, filter clogging and microbially influenced corrosion.

The conditions within a fuel tank can prove ideal for microbial growth, with severe contamination potentially leading to engine failure.

NCIMB offers quality assured analysis of fuel and fuel components to nationally recognised standards.

We can test fuel samples for:

  • Bacteria and fungi
  • Particulate contamination
  • Water content

We can carry out investigations to problem solve contamination issues or test for the presence of a suspected contaminant.  More information about our fuel testing service is available here.
