Military fuels and lubricant testing

A proud history of fuel testing

In the defence sector where performance and reliability are critical, ensuring the quality of fuels and lubricants is a key element of any defence project or maintenance programme. Each year, around 12,000 unique fuel and lubricant samples, each with its own special requirement and testing method, are tested and analysed by our teams, helping our customers to better understand the performance of fuels and lubricants.
