  • I have had the pleasure of working closely with Electro-Motion on my fire pumps and emergency generator. They correct problems on the spot and report on anything which may need to be corrected in the future, keeping equipment in top working order saves us all in emergency repairs and costly down time.

    Today, Downtime Isn't Measured by the Day, but by the Minute

    May 4, 2020

    Fuel Testing is the most cost-effective way to prevent downtime.

    "In this industry, the cost of downtime isn't measured by the day, but by the minute." These words, spoken by an engineer employed at one of the largest Data firms in California, couldn't be more true.

    Fuel degrades over time, and quality issues are the leading cause of emergency power failure. Annual tank-bottom inspections and fuel testing can save thousands in repair and downtime costs, and ensure the reliability of standby emergency power.

    In accordance with National Fire Protection Association 110, Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems, 2019 Edition, Electro-Motion has teamed with Dynamic Fuel Solutions to include annual Fuel Inspection & Testing as part of our core maintenance services to bring our customers a comprehensive fuel-testing package that will avoid costly repair and downtime due to preventable fuel-related issues.

    Regardless of tank size, the poorest quality fuel always rests at the lower end of the tank. More importanty, this is the first fuel to be drawn into the engine when the system is called upon. If you're not regularly taking samples from the bottom and mid-level of the tank, you may find out too late that the fuel meant to support your emergency and standby power equipment is out of spec, unfit, or requiring some upkeep to maintain optimal quality and ASTM specifications.

    Improve your emergency backup power system with annual fuel testing. Call Electro-Motion at 650-321-6169 to learn more or to scheudle a fuel inspection & testing service on your unit now.
