Microbial Testing of Jet Fuel for the Aviation Sector

At TelLab, we have decades of experience carrying out microbial fuel testing.

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, with airlines sector grounded,  our dedicated fuel and microbiology laboratory can carry out analysis of jet fuel,  fulfilling the aviation sector’s need for regular microbiological testing of fuel from your aircraft tanks.

We will issue your report within tens days of sample receipt.

The Problem

Heat, water and oxygen in the tank, coupled with nutrients from the fuel create the ideal breeding ground for bacteria, fungi and other microbes, which spread through the fuel.

Without testing, microbial contamination can affect fuel quality and lead to filter clogging, accelerated injector wear and corrosion of the fuel tank.

With airline fleets now grounded, the risks are greater than ever as tanks are not being consistently refilled or subject to the normal turbulence encountered during regular flights.
