Fuel Integrity and Maintenance
More than ever before engines, no matter what their use, are not designed to run on poor quality fuel. Most manufacturers warn of using bad fuel and the dangers of using contaminated fuel in their engines. Your diesel engine is made to run on clean diesel fuel, not on a mixture of diesel, water, bacteria, and sludge. Save yourself the frustration of costly breakdowns caused by bad fuel, by establishing a regular fuel maintenance program, as recommended by leading manufacturers. The first step is contacting us for sampling of your diesel fuel. Let us show you what is in your fuel, firsthand.
Once the condition of the fuel has been established, a proper maintenance program can be designed and implemented. We will advise you and help you choose the type of plan that suits your requirements best.
Storage and Handling and Consolidation Audits
Just as keeping your fuel integrity maintained, lubricating oils perform optimally when they are clean and dry. Storage and handling of these vital fluids is an often overlooked part of any preventative maintenance program. We offer on-site audits to identify and remedy all potential contamination sources for you fluids. Even the most minor changes can have radical and lasting impact to your equipment availability and longevity.
If you handle multiple lubricating oils chances are that you have redundant products. Consolidating lubricating oils to the fewest correct fluids will:
- Reduce misapplication of oils
- Reduce inventory and space
- Reduce waste
- Improve safety
