Fuel and Fuel System Microbiology: Fundamentals, Diagnosis, and Contamination Control B-ASTM-003

This new ASTM manual brings together the various test procedures that technicians need to diagnose the contamination in fuels and fuel systems. It also suggests the means for detection and control of microbial contamination.

As a complement to ASTM D6469 Standard Guide for Microbial Contamination in Fuels and Fuel Systems, this new publication provides an overview of:

  • Microbiological principles underlying fuel and fuel system biodeterioration
  • Sample collection and handling
  • Recommendations for disinfecting and removing microbial contamination from fuels and fuel systems
  • A variety of diagnostic tests

    It applies to furnace, aviation gasoline, diesel, aviation turbine, marine, industrial gas turbine, kerosene, gasoline, fuel systems, crude oil, and all liquid petroleum fuels.

    This is a valuable resource for professionals with a limited microbiological understanding of the symptoms, occurrences, and consequences of chronic microbial contamination. This includes:

  • Fuel industry personnel responsible for quality
  • Operators at refineries, terminals, and retail centers
  • Marine, air, and surface fleet operators
  • Personnel responsible for petroleum reserves
  • Researchers
