Ensuring Fuel Compliance Standards

ENSURING FUEL COMPLIANCE STANDARDS


Clean Fuels was recently highlighted for their efforts in aiding local fuel compliance in a recent article from Oil & Energy Online.

Maintaining fuel compliance standards is vital in the US for fuel users, retailers and servicers alike. Partnering with Clean Fuels has become a tool for fuel retailers to keep their fuel in tip-top shape, as well as thwart preventable damage to expensive equipment. This is big news for fuel retailers along the Eastern US; where Clean Fuels’ scope of service extends. Stretching from as far north as Maine, all the way down to Florida with hubs throughout the region, Clean Fuels is taking proactive measures in cleaning and maintenance. Their services meet standards of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 110, and empower commercial clients do the same.

Sampling and testing of diesel fuel is at the top of the necessary proactive measures with Clean Fuels. Any company that stores diesel fuel must have an official fuel inspection done once a year. This mandatory compliance testing verifies that all fuel meets the ASTM D 975 standard for diesel specifications.

Corrosive tanks and equipment are a major cause for concern with all fuel storage facilities. The increase of ethanol blending has been shown to be a major cause of this corrosion, leading to unusable equipment and tainted fuel. Preventive maintenance is necessary to keep replacement and emergency service costs down for these companies. The cleaning process cannot be neglected and should be done for any and all customers who store fuel.

While preventative maintenance is a must, Clean Fuels is also equipped to handle emergency situations as they arise and will aid companies to correct situations across the Eastern US. Clean Fuels has the experience and know-how to ensure fuel storage clients will meet NFPA fuel compliance standards and prepare to avoid unexpected emergencies.
