ASTM D975 Life Safety Fuel Testing Requirements

 

As a fuel testing laboratory we receive phone calls from Medicals facilities and hospitals everyday asking questions about ASTMD 975. There is a lot confusion out there about the requirement for testing as part of the life safety codes.

If you read NFPA 110 it simply states that you have to test from among ASTM D975 diesel standard. It doesn’t give any specific recommendations about what test to run. If your a facility that is mandated to test the fuel in your back up generator don’t just assume that you have to run the full ASTM D975 test package. Give us a call and we will help identify your exactly what your facility needs.
