April 13, 2016

Petroleum marketing company RUBiS Energy Jamaica has introduced a new high tech method of fuel testing, in the form of Portable Digital Fuel Testers, to the Jamaican gasoline retail market to further strengthen the integrity of their products.

The introduction of the state-of-the-art technology reaffirms RUBiS' fuels marketing leadership. The international marketing company has invested in the Portable Digital Fuel Testers, which are commonly used in refineries and fuel terminals as well as for offshore and transportation applications, as a means of having on site testing across their service stations island-wide.

Designed for fuel testing applications the Portable Digital Fuel Testers perform analysis which would otherwise be conducted by means of time consuming lab tests and displays the 99.99 per cent accurate results within seconds via the LCD display-screen. The device can store over 1,000 tests  results; consequently allowing users to compare results of varying samples while readily allowing logging for an eventual database of results for consultation if needed. The results are also transferable to computers or exporting to printers and other devices thanks to the devices' wireless communication, infrared data interface.

Raymond Samuels, Retail Manager, RUBiS Energy, posited that fuel quality is a top priority for RUBiS as the company prides itself on selling highest quality, safe fuels in all their markets. Samuels also outlined the importance of the newly acquired technology and how it will be a massive aid in further improving the efficiency of fuel testing and RUBiS's retail operations.

"RUBiS is fully committed to providing the highest quality products and our latest investment in the Portable Digital Fuel Testers is in line with our mandate of providing safe, quality fuel products to the Jamaican consumers. The usual procedure for quality assurance testing would include transporting fuel samples to the RUBiS laboratory located at our plant, however with this advanced equipment we are now able to conduct on site tests at our service stations and have the results delivered within seconds. This is the most efficient method of testing internationally and RUBiS is proud to introduce it to the Jamaican Gasoline Retail Market," Samuels outlined.
