Fuel Lab

Portable Fuel & Oil Lab

To allow the clients that operate remotely (like vessels) to decide about quality of fuel oils that are bunkering, TecnoVeritas is offering Portable Fuel & Oil Lab, optionally with a Drip Sampling Flange (according to standard ISO 3170:2004), allowing to sample fuel during bunkering operation and to analyse it.

Don’t Burn your Money
Today Diesel engines can cope with low quality fuels, but only to a certain extent!

To make sure that the fuel quality your engine is burning is adequate and to avoid troubles and save time and money, a proper fuel oil analysis must be performed.

Engine malfunctions have often their origin in fuel treatment plant setup.
To avoid these problems you need to know the actual fuel characteristics and therefore you need to have means to test it.

Composition of today’s fuel oil places an increasing demand on its quality control. To make sure you are buying the quality you asked for, a proper fuel oil analysis laboratory must be available!
