Fuel & Oil Analysis

Fuel Analysis picture

At Advanced fluid analysis is a vital component for any oil management program. Early detection of potential problems can prevent costly repairs and downtime.

Ideally engine oil should have been in use for about 250 hours before being sampled, and twice the length of time for all other systems. However, it is possible to obtain accurate and meaningful results provided the oil has been in use for no less than 20 hours.

Fuel Polishing

How often do we hear of engine downtime caused by fuel starvation due to obstructions whether they be caused by micro-bacterial (fuel bug) sediment or wax deposits in the fuel supply chain?

What happens when most fuel suppliers will only guarantee their fuel for a period of six months when used in bulk storage and the maintenance regime on a site makes no allowance for regular analysis and inspection of fuel?

At worse when diesel generator system is needed to most to support critical and essential services on loss of a local DNO supply it is deprived of fuel and fails to start.

In the context of fuel management what benefits are derived from incorporating a fuel polishing feature as part of the overall fuel system?

fuel polishing features as supplied and installed by Advanced will:

  • Remove water a major contributory factor to micro-bacterial (fuel bug) propagation from the fuel.
  • Avoid downtime and maintaining normal service intervals on fuel filters by minimising the potential for any blockages by allowing clean fuel to pass more effectively.
  • Increases the fuel efficiency of the engine through cleaner fuel consumption.
  • Improve the engine life span reduced downtime and lower associated maintenance costs.
  • Avoids costs associated with the replacement and dispersal of contaminated fuel.
  • Ensures the diesel generator system will start when it is needed the most.
