FQS 1.5 Microbicide®

FQS 1.5 Microbicide® is an EPA approved antimicrobial agent used in the control of bacteria and fungi in fuel systems that store liquid hydrocarbon fuels and oils such as: crude oils, petrochemical feed stocks, liquefied petroleum gasses, gasoline, diesel fuel oils, aviation fuels, kerosene, coal slurries, renewable fuel blend stock and renewable fuel blends.


FQS 1.5 Microbicide® has the same active ingredients as *Kathon FP 1.5 Microbicide.  It also has the same speed of kill, proven treat rate of 1:10,000, persistence and pricing.


FAST ACTING – FQS 1.5 Microbicide® has shown to decrease microbial activity in as quickly as 5 hours after initial treatment.


TREAT RATE: Typical effective treat rate is 100 ppm or 1 gallon FQS 1.5 Microbicide® to 10,000 gallons fuel product.  Fuel systems with severe microbial contamination can undergo treatments of up to 400 ppm.



EPA Registration No. 65597-1

Filters / Filtration Systems

Filters / Filtration Systems FQS recommends cleaning fuels/lubes prior to being put into storage. Modular manifold solutions handle a wide range of flows and viscosities.


Water means trouble and where there’s water there’s life. Stop trouble before it gets in! Water has a way of sneaking in unless you have a Donaldson T.R.A.P.™ Breather standing guard over your system.


No moisture slips by Donaldson's Thermally Reactive Advanced Protection (T.R.A.P). In fact, it removes moisture at relative humidity levels as low as 15%.


The T.R.A.P Breathers are the only breathers that literally strip moisture vapor from intake air and exhales the moisture back into the atmosphere on the outflow cycle. T.R.A.P. filtration technology reacts instantly to thermal conditions, blocking moisture completely.

Bug Alert® Test Kit

Effective control of microbial contamination through biocide use is only possible when routine monitoring of fungi and bacteria levels are performed. The Bug Alert® test kit make routine determinations of fungal and bacteria populations quick and easy. The Bug Alert® test kit contains flexible plastic strips to which nutrient-containing filter paper is attached. The kit is complete and ready to use. No special equipment or training is necessary. Test results can be read Aerobic Bacteria (AB) 24-36 hrs and Yeast & Mold (YM) 72 hrs.


The YM stands for Yeast and Molds (fungi), these are closely related organisms and generally require the same conditions for growth. Results may be read as early as 72 hours and may take an additional 3 days. The AB stands for Aerobic Bacteria, those organisms which require oxygen. Most bacteria that contaminates the industrial environment are in this category and will grow on the AB test strip. The kit contains dehydrated pads and requires no refrigeration.


If the test strips are positive for bugs, call FQS to consult possible treatment options. If the test strips are negative, the next step would be to check for SRB (Sulfate Reducing Bacteria) anaerobic bacteria to determine if this might be the problem. A bottom fuel sample is required for microbiological testing.


Kits are complete and ready to use.


No special training needed.


Test results can be read as early as 72 hours.


The Bug Alert® Test Kit is a good “go” - “no go” microbial fuel test .


Product Number: FQS-005


The HY-LiTE® Rapid Microbial Test for Fuel Systems can be used for testing of: Jet A, Jet A1, Jet B, JP8, JP8+100, F34/F35, gasoline, diesel, biodiesel B100 and biodiesel blends, marine diesel and ethanol blends.


  • Complies with ASTM D7463 ATP Test Method.

  • Simple to perform with results in 10 minutes or less.

  • The test will detect the presence of metabolically active microorganisms.

  • The test results are not affected by the presence of di-EGME (FSII) or approved levels of biocides (100 ppm FQS 1.5 Microbicide or 270 ppm Biobor JF).

MicrobMonitor2® TEST KIT

MicrobMonitor2® Test Kit is IATA approved and recognized by major airframe manufacturers for aviation fuel and is easy to use. You can test the water or fuel phase of aviation fuel. The kit consists of a test bottle containing a nutrient gel that promotes the growth of bacteria and yeast/molds. Once a sample has been added to the bottle, the container is incubated as instructed, dark place for 1 to 4 days for bacteria and 3 additional days for yeast & mold. The microbes actually grow in and on the gel. They will show up as red or purplish red dots in the sample bottle indicating a positive result. If you require a quantitative number there is a color chart to compare the results against.


Generally any positive growth requires action. Call FQS to consult on possible treatment options.


The MicrobMonitor2® can be used to test both the fuel/oil phase and the water phase.


IATA approved for aviation fuels
