Conidia Bioscience, the company that created FUELSTAT, has added a new page to its website discussing the subject of polluted fuel in diesel generators. The website, called “The 15 Minute Diesel Generator Testing Kit,” has grown in popularity due to its educational value.
The piece begins by stating that during a power outage, the last thing anybody wants is for the generator to fail, and in most cases, the fuel inside the generator is equally as critical. Because power outages are imminent, it is critical to verify that the fuel contained therein is totally usable. This requires vigilant monitoring and management of microbial contamination (often referred to as diesel bug).
Conidia Bioscience warns that backup generators are very susceptible to microbial infection. Modern diesel fuels are constantly contaminated to some extent by microbes. Additionally, when gasoline is not replaced often, pollution has an additional opportunity to accumulate to lethal levels.
Microbial contamination on a large scale might spell calamity. If contamination rises rapidly between tests, it has the potential to disable your generators.
The page discusses how inconvenient conventional fuel testing is. Contamination testing is often performed by contracting an external team, shipping samples off-site, and waiting days for findings. Risks of contamination are often underestimated. Numerous maintenance contractors are unaware of how quickly the diesel bug spreads or the threat it poses. The only way to have complete trust in a generator is to implement a fuel maintenance programme that includes frequent, accurate testing with a margin of error of 0%.
Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME), often known as biofuel, has been added to diesel for over a decade. FAME is prone to microbial contamination because of its ability to draw and retain water. Once this microbial contamination begins to grow, it may swiftly spiral out of control. Microorganisms generate a thick, slimy substance called biomass, which jams engines and renders them inoperable. Additionally, biomass may affect metal corrosion, resulting in lasting damage to tanks and mechanical components.
