Diesel Fuel Quality Assurance

Contaminated fuel is often the culprit when standby emergency generators suddenly fail, which can create life-threatening emergencies. We are experienced in preventing such unwanted shutdowns by providing recommendations to hospitals, airports, the armed forces, nuclear power plants, and other organizations that require high quality, reliable systems.

Our Office of Automotive Engineering (OAE) is certified to ISO 9001:2008 “Quality Management Systems – Requirements” and ISO 14001:2004 “Environmental Management Systems”. The OAE is also accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 “General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories”. The OAE has achieved Ford Tier 1 status for providing engineering services, and has received the Ford Q1 Quality Award.

In conjunction with these OAE quality system accomplishments, the Petroleum Products Research Department is a Nuclear Procurement Issues Committee (NUPIC)-approved laboratory, the Fuels Lubricants Research Department has maintained its status as an American Chemistry Council (ACC)-approved laboratory, and the Department of Emissions Research has received the Ford Customer-Driven Quality Award and maintained its status as a Caterpillar-certified Supplier.
