Fuel testing determines the course of action for your diesel fuel management plan. A quality and reliable fuel analysis is the most important aspect of a fuel management program.
Independent analysis identifies the quality of your diesel fuel which directly impacts the engine and equipment performance.
With fuel testing, potential deficiencies are uncovered. For example, fuel filter plugging, smoking, loss of power, poor injector performance. Any of these issues can lead to total equipment failure.
Regular fuel samples are collected to assess the state of your diesel fuel. Failure to routinely analyze the chemical make up of your fuel, will lead to a faulty and unstable backup plan.
Engine manufacturers require the use of ASTM D975 standard grade diesel fuel.
Engine manufacturers “do not” guarantee fuel quality, nor do fuel dealers guarantee or warranty engines!
Another benefit of routine testing is to confirm you’re using ASTM grade diesel fuel. ASTM grade fuel is not only recommended by engine manufacturers, but also a requirement of safety and storage handling.
ASTM grade fuel leads to a cost-effective approach in equipment maintenance by allowing you to sustain your manufacturer’s warranty.
Engine manufacturer warranties typically cover defects caused by “material and/or workmanship” for a limited amount of time. Fuel is not warranted under any condition unless it is in a quality diesel fuel management program.
We will offer you a complimentary on-site inspection and basic ASTM D975 analysis.
The only way to ensure reliability with any emergency backup system is through preventative maintenance.
– Carla Sullivan, CEO, Patriot Clean Fuel
Fuel related problems are the primary cause of equipment breakdown. The only way to ensure reliability with any emergency backup system is through preventative maintenance.
At Patriot Clean Fuel our only goal is to provide our customers with high quality, reliable and cost effective diesel fuel and diesel fuel related service programs!
10 years of experience has led us to perfect our diesel fuel management program. At Patriot Clean Fuel, we developed a proven and scientific process for filtering and cleaning diesel fuel.
A diesel fuel management program may consist of any or all combinations of the listed items:
Certified ASTM Fuel Testing and laboratory analysis to trend fuel
Water Elimination and extraction of separated water from the tank bottom
Fuel reconditioning and remediation to >0.5 micron level
Chemical treatment and stabilization
Fuel delivery testing and quarantine chemical treatments
Complete preventative maintenance programs designed by Patriot Clean Fuel
Diagnostic fuel and fuel system evaluation
Chain of custody fuel analysis
Over 80% of all generator shutdowns stem from fuel-related problems.
Don’t let this happen to you!
Our diesel fuel cleaning solution integrates with your current infrastructure. Inspections will identify and address any potential system deficiencies that could result in impact to the Critical Facility and emergency backup system.
The purpose for fuel system commissioning is to validate the existing conditions, system integrations, perform various systems operations inspections, perform fail-over scenarios in a controlled environment, and complete a system flush to ensure reliable integration in the existing infra-structure.
This process provides an independent inspection and systems testing deliverable of a new system relative to the physical condition of the mechanical and electrical operations. Inspections will identify and address any potential system deficiencies that could result in impact to the Critical Facility and emergency backup system.
Contrary to belief, the best time to implement a fuel management program is during the start-up and commissioning phase of a project. Welding slag, residual pipe tape/dope, water, and construction debris are all forms of contaminants that are typically introduced during the build up phase and if not addressed, will ultimately lead to long term fuel reliability issues.
Completing a thorough commissioning/testing program will improve systems reliability across the board prior to the facility going on-line.
Regular system performance testing is critical to reliable system operations.
