TEI – The industry leader in test program management.
Over 120 years combined industry experience uniquely qualify TEI’s staff to independently manage fuels and lubricants formulation testing on-site. Since approximately 75% of the independent lubricants testing qualification programs are conducted in San Antonio labs, it just makes sense to utilize a representative who maintains regular contact with Intertek Automotive Research and Southwest Research Institute.
TEI’s Test Program Management includes on-site visits for an additional degree of support for your tests. TEI representatives are in the labs almost daily and provide test status reports tri-weekly. The staff at TEI understands the subtleties and intricacies of both the engine and bench tests required to demonstrate and assess additive performance relative to both domestic and international specifications. In the event that questions arise concerning your test, you already have a local representative at TEI. At times, the backlog in the labs can cause test starts to be delayed for weeks or even months.
TEI’s confirmed test space commitments may allow our staff to secure space sooner resulting in more timely test completion and results. TEI’s familiarity with the CMA Code of Practice and the ATC Code of Practice, including the test registration process, in-house rating expertise, knowledge of build-up and operational requirements, and extensive experience with the test hardware uniquely qualifies our staff to expertly manage all facets of your particular test program.
TEI handles the logistics and all costs associated with the delivery of oil samples to the appropriate test facilities. TEI provides Test Program Management for fuels, lubricants, gear oils and greases, ATF’S, hydraulic fluids, or virtually any other petrochemical fluid. Expeditious test reports, concise results interpretation and complete anonymity if required are all part of TEI’s high level of confidential service.
