Microbial contamination is a very serious issue for all users of middle distillate fuels, jet fuel and diesels.
Regular testing is part of an integrated fuel management process that often includes water draining procedures and testing. The main objective is to remove the water that the microbes require to thrive, and to detect contamination through testing at its earliest point before any issues have an impact on operations, budget, the environment and overall safety.
Operators should always follow industry and OEM guides to ensure that the fuel being supplied from refinery to fuel tank, and then stored in fuel tanks ready for use is on specification and free from contamination to provide safe and efficient running of engines.
