Research Laboratories, Inc. is a full service diesel fuel analysis facility specializing in the testing of distillate fuels (including Emergency Generator fuels to satisfy NFPA compliance requirements.)   We offer fuel analysis on diesel, gasoline, some bio-diesel blends and other distillate fuels.  ‘State-of-the-art’ testing equipment following ASTM International specifications when applicable are used by our highly trained and educated staff to obtain accurate results.  A portion of the tests available are:

#2 Diesel:
Gasoline:
  • HFRR (Lubricity) ASTM D6079
  • Sulfur Content ASTM D5453
  • CFPP ASTM D6371
  • Cloud Point ASTM D5771 
  • Pour Point ASTM D97 
  • Water by Karl Fischer ASTM D6304
  • Summer Fuel Analysis Package
  • Winter Fuel Analysis Package
  • Emergency Generator/Fuel Monitoring ProgramTM
  • Distillation ASTM D86
  • Sulfur Content ASTM D5453
  • Reid Vapor Pressure ASTM D5191
  • Water by Karl Fischer ASTM D6304
 
Kerosene:
Biodiesel: (B2-B20 max. blend)
  • Kero Summer Fuel Analysis Package
  • Kero Winter Fuel Analysis Package
  • Aviation Turbine Fuel Analysis Package
  • Flash Point D93 PMCC
  • Specification Testing D6751

Additional Testing:                                                                           
'Real World' Cold Weather Simulation
Our cold room is unique to the industry.  This allows our technicians to simulate 'real world'  severe cold weather conditions to evaluate the performance operability of #2 diesel fuel using actual O.E.M. pumps and filters.                                                                                                       
Fuel 'Fuel Fingerprint' via Gas Chromatograph
Reveals the cross contamination of gasoline in diesel fuel and vise versa.
 
For more information about these programs or any fuel testing not listed above please contact us.

It is Never too Late (or too Early) to Prepare for Winter...
Sure it is pleasant now, but its getting colder in the mornings. The dew that glistens will once again be turned into frost all too soon. Are your fuel tanks and emergency generator tanks prepared for what is to come?

Comparison Additive Testing For Diesel Fuel Additives-Kno...
Research Laboratories, Inc., a fuel/petroleum testing facility employing ASTM, IP and other accepted test methods, offers diesel fuel additive comparison testing to aid diesel fuel users, refiners and suppliers in making wise choices in selecting appropriate chemical protection for Winter and Summer fuels. Choosing an effective diesel fuel additive is critical for all fuel additive buyers. ALL DIESEL FUEL ADDITIVES ARE NOT THE SAME! However with notorious vendor sales tactics and questionable product literature claims a fuel user can become very confused in the process. Solution: Petroleum laboratory analysis of each perspective fuel additive BEFORE buying.

Determination of Cold Weather Fuel Operability
There are various means used to predict how a diesel fuel will function in cold temperatures. There are various means used to theoretically predict whether a particular diesel fuel will function properly when used at reduced ambient temperatures. Some of these methods are "good predictors" and some are not. The following describes the most widely used testing techniques to assist fuel marketers and fuel users. (continued)
