For Fuel Sampling Bottles:

Are the bottles sterile?

Yes the twin necked 1 litre sampling bottles have been irradiation sterilized to ensure their sterility.

How long is the shelf life of the bottles?

The bottles will not be supplied with less than 6 months shelf life remaining.  It is normal for bottles to be supplied with up to 3 years of shelf life remaining.

Why do I need a 1 litre sample?

1 litre of sample is  recommended when taking aircraft fuel tank drain samples (as recommended by IATA). Only a very small amount of sample is actually required for testing.
