What you get with the Maritec Worldwide Fuel Testing Program

Customized Testing & Analysis of your Fuel Sample
A sample of marine fuel under the Maritec fuel testing program undergoes a comprehensive analysis of tests. Besides performing the standard tests to check if the sample meets the ISO 8217 fuel standard, Maritec conducts additional tests providing vessel operators with much needed data on the fuel characteristics. These include information required by the ship's engineers for setting optimum handling and burning conditions, coping with fuel-related problems and identifying adulteration of fuel with waste lube oils.
