Field Testing Fuel

field tests

Regular testing is an important part of managing today’s fuels. Fuels degrade more rapidly than they did a decade ago. Poor fuel quality costs everyone. The only sure way to know is to test the fuel. Dixon has tests that can be completed in the field for instant or near instant results available for purchase.

Water test

Water Detection Field Fuel Test Kit

The water kit detects suspended and separated free water in diesel, biodiesel and fuel blends. It takes approximately 10 minutes to quantify the amount of water in your fuel by a range of parts per million.

  • 0-500 ppm:         Particles are white
  • 500-1000 ppm: Light pink
  • 1000 + ppm:       Dark pink (purple in dyed fuel)

microbial detection2

Microbial Detection Field Fuel Test Kit

The microbial kit detects microbial growth in diesel, biodiesel and fuel blends. It is an easy to use test and provides results in 48-72 hours.

  • PASS:    No change in your sample
  • FAIL:      Color change or visible mold/microbial growth

acid number test

Acid Number Field Fuel Test Kit

The acid number kit detects the presence of acid in all fuels. It determines the acid level, not the pH as pH is related to water and not fuel. If the test kit detects an acid level greater than 1, then this is an indication of a problem and further testing is advised.

ethanol test

Ethanol Detection Field Fuel Test Kit

The ethanol kit detects the presence of ethanol in all fuels. It takes less than 10 minutes for results. Kit includes fuel testing tube with cap, pipette and vial of blue testing fluid.
