Field Tests*

 

Fuel Analysis on the Field

 

LabTecno has a set of Laboratory Tests that can be performed outside the Laboratory installations. These tests are carried out at the customer’s facilities or at another place to be designated. The team travels to the place using a vehicle equipped with the necessary material to carry out the tests.

 
The types of product available for the performance of the tests:
  • HFO (Fuel oil)
 
The tests marked with a 🡄 are tests in the accreditation process and under evaluation by IPAC (ISO 17025).
*The field tests need to be arranged with the client. Due to the pandemic we are only performing in Portugal.
Determination of density at 15ºC 🡄

ASTM D7777

Description: to determine the density of a sample of fuel oil at 15ºC using a portable digital density meter.
