Testing for Water in Fuel

Recent changes have seen the introduction of ethanol as a fuel additive. However ethanol (and bio-ethanol) are able to absorb water and this can give rise to corrosion issues at fuel storage sites such as filling stations, fuel depots etc. Our UKAS and MCerts accreditted laboratory is now able to test samples of fuel (petrol, diesel, jetA1 etc) for dissolved water content using the Karl Fischer titration method. The test is accurate down to 1 part water per million parts fuel with results available within 2 working days of us receiving the sample. Please contact Duncan Eastland – 01296 739431 – for further information or to arrange for sample testing.
