Ideal Tests To Detect Fuel Dilution In Engine Oils

Fuel Dilution, or the fuel contamination in engine oil, is a serious issue. It is the process of mixing raw fuel or unburned fuel with oil. Fuel Dilution can lead to engine failure and other costly damages. It can also result in emission problems and a reduction in fuel efficiency, lack of lubrication, corrosion, etc. At Chem-Tech Laboratories, the best engine oil testing laboratory in India, we believe detecting Fuel Dilution is important because it can helps to save money and avoid expensive r...

RoHS Compliance Analysis For Electrical Equipment At Chem-Tech Laboratories

RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. It is a European Union Directive that prohibits the use of certain substances in electronic equipment for human and environmental protection from hazardous substances. RoHS compliance analysis is a process in which the product to be analyzed is checked for substances that are banned under the RoHS directive. Hazardous Chemicals That RoHS Directive Restricts To Certain Levels Lead (Pb) Mercury (Hg) Cadmium (Cd) Hexavalent Chromium (Cr(VI)) Poly...

Understanding Water Contamination In Lubricants

Lubricants help to reduce friction between two surfaces. This reduces wear on the surface of an object and extends its life. Lubricants are also very important for certain machines because they help to keep them running smoothly without any interruptions. They are used in a variety of applications, including automotive engines, general machines, industrial machinery,  and moving parts in general. Water is one of the most common contaminants found in oil-based lubricants. It acts as a corr...

Testing Sulphur Contamination In Diesel

Dieselll is normally analysed in a laboratory for a variety of chemical and physical tests to monitor quality and compliance with various regulations. The introduction of the BS VI emission norms and a spike in fuel prices have forced the industry to look at alternative sources of cheaper fuel. The high demand has given rise to something we call at Chem-Tech Laboratories “Synthetic Diesel” or “Doctored Fuel”. As the name suggests synthetic or doctored is something that is manufactured in...

Basic Oil Sampling Procedure

Proper oil sampling is critical to an effective oil analysis program. Without a representative sample, further oil analysis endeavors are futile. There are two primary goals in obtaining a representative oil sample. The first goal is to maximize data density. The sample should be taken in a way that ensures there is as much information per milliliter of oil as possible. This information relates to such criteria as cleanliness and dryness of the oil, depletion of additives, and the presence of we...
