Dipslide testing for bacterial infection in fuel
Water can form in any fuel tank, typically from condensation, poor ventilation or water ingress (especially common in marine vessels). Water, while a contamination itself, is the main cause of formation of all other forms of contaminations, such as bacteria, yeast and moulds. Infections then quickly multiply and can lead to blocked fuel filters, damaged injectors, engine failure and can be potentially life threatening if back up power supplies fail.
We therefore recommend fuel is checked regularly for signs of contamination so any infection can be treated early on.
To prevent and/ or treat infection, we recommend our popular biocide, BIOKEM.

- suitable for diesel, petrol, kerosene, heating oil or MDO.
The dip slide is held within a container which keeps the agar clean before and during processing. An instruction sheet and a growth chart are also included.For most accurate results, we recommend using an incubator to keep the sample at a consistent temperature of between 30 and 35 Degrees Centigrade.
The Micro Dip Slides are easy to use and test for bacteria, yeast and moulds. Suitable for:
- Heating Oil
We highly recommend treating any bacterial infection as early as possible with WASP® BIOKEM SP15 to prevent further spreading of the bacteria.
WASP® BIOKEM SP15 can be used to prevent further spreading of bacteria even with very heavy growth, but please note, it will not remove the residue already there.
To remove existing residue, a fuel cleaning system should be used.
If you would like professional and detailed fuel testing, please contact us to discuss having fuel samples taken and sent to our lab for analysis.
We also recommend you follow our Good Fuel House Keeping Guide as well as treating fuel regularly with a preventative dose of BIOKEM SP15.
