Wet-Stacking is a common problem with diesel engines which are operated for extended periods with little or no loads applied. This allows unburned fuel to accumulate in the exhaust system, including turbochargers, engine valves and can foul the fuel injectors. Load bank testing can be an excellent addition to your preventative maintenance schedule. This service utilizes a portable load to provide performance testing on site when the facility loads are unavailable or insufficient for proper testing. This load testing can also ensure the unit is tested to the standards recommended by the manufacturer and other requirements such as National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and Joint Commission of Hospitals (JCOH).

The darkening is accompanied by the formation of sediment that plugs filters and causes poor combustion. Fuel & Oil vendors know what time can do to fuel quality and suggest that if diesel fuel is stored for emergency use, it should be replaced with fresh fuel within a year, unless special precautions or remedial actions are taken such as fuel polishing. The University of Idaho conducted tests on the life expectancy of fuels to determine the timeline on degradation of stored #2 diesel fuel. The results indicated 26% degradation after 28 days of storage.
