Oilybits provide a wide range of equipment commonly utilised in the marine sector, this section serves as a basic guide to the ranges of products we offer, if you have specific requirements for equipment you are unable to locate on our website, then please do contact us for further information.

Fuel Quality Assurance

There are a number of different types of micro-organisms that can grow in certain types of fuel. The biggest problem is presented by a lamentous fungus called Hormoconis Resinae (H Res). Previously called Cladosporium Resinae, and more commonly referred to as “Diesel Bug”.

For instant results, the FUELSTAT® Resinae PLUS Tests measure the amount of different types of contamination: H Res, bacteria and fungi actively growing in the sample and reports that as the weight of material in the sample. This is a newer, more accurate measurement system than the old Colony Forming Unit (CFU) count, which would take up to 72 hours to grow a representative culture.


Alternatively, still popular for applications where the 72 hour colony-forming process is acceptable, the time served Microbmonitor2 is a cost effective alternative.
