In this new, multifuel, custom-blend market owners must be aware that the best defense against these risk factors is to know exactly what you are buying. It is crucial to be diligent in the monitoring of fuel samples tested for quality by port and supplier.
The three fundamental values of testing a vessel sample are:
1) Did the fuel meet the ISO standards (min and max limits) to issue a Pass/Fail
2) Did the fuel satisfy the vessel’s need to know levels on viscosity, water, sediment, etc. to adjust onboard handling while sailing or in lay-up?
3) To identify suppliers in this competitive market who over bill by inflating density value on the BDN relative to the real lab-tested density. Over the course of a year, this can impact the fuel spend of a fleet by hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Clearlynx complements your lab testing and offers all company stakeholders the ability to parse and view on-demand a clear, multi-tab visual dashboard of fuel quality data.
This ClearQ Package is an upgrade to existing reporting. This package is designed as one report segmented into "tabs," which you can find at the top of each report. Currently, the reports included in the tabber look at claims, density & energy, off spec details, sulphur summary, viscosity summary, and more! Within each tab you will have the ability to see a breakdown by grade as well as overall. Sticky filters are applied to each tab, eliminating the need to address filters as you cycle through various tabs of reports.
