Water Contamination in Diesel Fuel Storage
by David Doyle, CLS, OMA I & II
Vice President & Operations Manager

Water is the most common form of contamination in diesel fuel. There will always be some measure of water in any diesel fuel; however, the total water content is normally less than 200 ppm and—most of the time—measures less than 100 ppm. At around 150 ppm, a slight haze will start to develop in the fuel. However, with adequate filtration and tank maintenance, the occasional presence of slightly hazy fuel should not cause operational problems. When the dissolved water content in fuel repeatedly measures between 200 ppm and 500 ppm, the fuel should be observed and monitored closely. . More . . .


Why Does My Lab Need a New Oil Reference Sample?Sample Bottles

When was the last time you sent in a new reference sample to your oil analysis laboratory? If you can’t remember, it’s probably time to send in a new oil sample. As a best practice, you should submit a new reference sample of each lubricant annually (at a minimum)—or whenever there is a known change in the oil formulation. Annual analysis of a new oil reference sample helps establish an accurate baseline for your oil analysis program and also keeps the laboratory up-to-date with reference data for the lubricant that you use in your equipment.
