Fuel testing laboratory gains UKAS accreditation

IMG_0636rsz

Adler & Allan’s dedicated fuel polishing and testing laboratory, located in Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, has gained UKAS accreditation, demonstrating its technical competence and integrity in the fields of evaluating and maintaining fuel quality.

One of only a handful of fuel testing facilities in the UK to meet the stringent standards of UKAS, the laboratory covers all petroleum refined fuels, diesel, gas oil and kerosene. In addition to test methods covered by our UKAS accreditation, fuel samples are tested to ASTM and EN ISO standards, with testing carried out by qualified technicians using the very best equipment on the market.

Alan Scrafton, Head of Marketing for Adler & Allan said: “Gaining UKAS accreditation is a great achievement. As a company, Adler & Allan aims to be leaders in a given field, using the latest technologies and carrying out services at the highest level. The UKAS mark of approval helps demonstrate this commitment in what has become an increasingly important service to our customers”.

EU Directives on bio-fuels and EU Standards for bio-diesel have increased the need for more frequent and higher standards of fuel maintenance. All fuel systems are vulnerable to contamination by water, where a bio-fuel is used, this water can cause microbes to grow causing damaging sludge. Contaminated fuel is harmful to tank interiors, the pipework leading to tanks, filters and seals. Within an engine, contaminated fuel affects injectors and cause incomplete combustion, carbon build-up, smoke, loss of power and possibly engine failure.

A regular maintenance programme to keep fuel in pristine condition will reduce the risk of operational downtime, safeguard expensive equipment and maintain the reputation of a business and its services.

Adler & Allan’s UKAS accredited fuel testing laboratory compliments its mobile testing and polishing unit, which can deliver small-scale fuel maintenance services, on site.
