High Aluminium + Silicon (Catfines) Levels in Fuels from Singapore

Issued: 2018-06-11 | Category: Archived bulletins/alerts

Recently FOBAS tested several residual fuel samples from Singapore that exceeded the 60 mg/kg limit for Aluminium + Silicon as stipulated in the ISO 8217:2010/12 specification. The fuels tested had values of these catfines ranging between 74 to 81 mg/kg. Please note that these results are within the ISO 8217:2005 (table 2) requirement of 80 mg/kg, however the ISO working group, based on operational feedback and data, reduced the limit to 60 mg/kg in subsequent editions of ISO 8217.
