Chem-TechTM capability of Solid fuel testing includes coal testing & biomass fuel testing. To ensure satisfactory energy generation from solid fuel it is important to use fuels that are of a suitable type, size and have appropriate fuel composition. Solid fuels are tested by Chem-TechTM on behalf of fuel producers, boiler manufacturers and users of solid fuels.
Coal, a fossil fuel, is one of the largest source of energy for the generation of electricity worldwide. Chem-TechTM helps companies to attain maximum output in the amount of energy produced by assisting in maintaining the quality of fuel used.
Chem-TechTM Tests Fuels to National & International standards & specification to check its quality.

Gross Calorific Value is determination of amount energy generated when fuels are burned in presence of Oxygen Environment. It is the amount of heat released during the combustion process for a specific amount of Fuel.
Methods adopted by Chem-Tech for Determination of Toluene Insoluble Content:
Water or Moisture is the most common contaminant in any lubricant or petroleum product. Monitoring the level water in sample is of prime importance to avoid malfunctioning of the equipment or machine.
Water content in petroleum products can be determined by following 4 test methods:
Methods Adopted by Chem-Tech for Water / Moisture Content Determination:
This test method covers the determination of ash in the range 0.001–0.180 mass %, from distillate and residual fuels, gas turbine fuels, crude oils, lubricating oils, waxes, and other petroleum products, in which any ash-forming materials present are normally considered to be undesirable impurities or contaminants . The test method is limited to petroleum products which are free from added ash-forming additives, including certain phosphorus compounds and Organo Metallic Additives.
Ash can result from oil or water-soluble metallic compounds or from extraneous solids such as dirt and rust.
Methods adopted by Chem-Tech for Determination of Ash Content:
Sulphur Content determines the amount of Sulphur present in an Lubricant and Fuel samples. Higher amount of sulphur content in fuels will lead to higher SOX emissions and lead to adverse effects and problems with government regulations.
