Gorge Analytical performed a fuel contamination test for my company as part of a military specification qualification effort in July of 2010. Gorge Analytical was chosen as a candidate to perform this test due to their experience with fuel testing and their ASTM affiliation. Jeff Fetkenhour and I engaged in a number of technical discussions in the months prior to conducting the contamination test. Jeff was very knowledgeable about the test procedure and specifications and was able to clarify the reasoning and evolution of the test and provide supporting documentation. During the testing effort at Gorge Analytical, I brought several of my customers to witness the test milestones. We were hospitably welcomed and were provided a lounge with internet access to work while setup and testing was being performed. We were very impressed at the cleanliness and organization of the facility. The lab was able to show us all calibration records and information sheets for the equipment that was going to be used for our test. Prior to testing, we conducted a detailed test review with Jeff where the need for small deviations from the original testing procedure were discovered. Jeff and his staff happily accommodated these changes and provided us a revised testing procedure and schedule within the hour. Gorge Analytical allowed us to be present for the segments of testing we wished to witness and provided us any photographs we required. The staff was very meticulous with our sample and paid heavy attention to the detail in performing the procedure. Gorge Analytical was able to provide a test report within a week after testing. I enjoyed working with Jeff and Gorge Analytical and have since referred him to several of my colleagues. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Gorge Analytical in the future.
