New fuel sample analysis technology

Новая технология анализа проб топлива

A-Technics has introduced a new technology for analyzing fuel samples.

A-Technics, an aircraft maintenance and repair provider, has introduced a new technology to determine the presence of bacteria in fuel samples when performing maintenance.

Previously, such an analysis took several days and was performed in special stationary laboratories outside the production facilities of A-Technics. Now this procedure is performed using the latest HY-Lite ® 2 System equipment within one hour, which allows you to quickly complete the maintenance of the aircraft and release it into operation.

Analysis of the presence of adenosine triphosphate bacteria in fuel samples is a mandatory maintenance procedure to ensure stable and trouble-free operation of the aircraft fuel system. The requirements for the implementation of this analysis are contained in the planned work, and are also carried out when the aircraft is stored or the presence of bacteria in the fuel is suspected. The frequency of this procedure is set by the aircraft manufacturer. For example, on all types of Boeing aircraft, an analysis to determine the presence of bacteria is carried out every 7,500 flight hours.

The use of the new technology has already been positively evaluated by the airlines - regular customers of A-Technics. The provider is ready to offer this service for new customers as well.


A-Technics Company is one of the largest providers of aircraft maintenance and repair in the territory of the Russian Federation and the CIS, part of the Aeroflot Group. Performs maintenance of Boeing 737, Boeing 747, Boeing 777, Airbus A350, Airbus A320Family and SSJ 100 aircraft. It is the only organization in Russia with unique competencies in terms of performing periodic maintenance of the latest Airbus A350 aircraft, as well as performing heavy forms of maintenance of Boeing 747 and Boeing 777 aircraft.
