Fuel

Fuel is a collective name for energy-bearing fuels in liquid form or as gas, meaning substance that creates energy through a combustion process and can therefore be used to operate machines. At Invicta we work with the liquid variations of fuel and the issues around their use, e.g diesel, marine diesel (MGO), jet diesel (JET A1), biodiesel (FAME, HVO) and gasoline. 

Common issues:

  • FIlter blockage
  • Injector problems
  • Cooling properties
  • Microbacterial growth

Analysis:

Our analysis will be able to reveal whether it is the fuel causing the given problem. We identify the contamination and the probable cause. We can also quantify and characterize particles present in the fuel.
