For Fuel Storage Up To 250,000 Gallons (946,000 liters)

Overview:

Fueltec Systems designs and manufactures Fuel Filtration Systems for critical standby power generation and bulk fuel storage. These systems are in use worldwide on aboveground and underground bulk tanks, sub-base tanks, and diesel engine day tanks.

System Features::

Positive displacement pumps 2.5 to 50 gallons per minute

Pre-filter bag type one or five micron within a stainless steel housing.

Water separator within a stainless steel housing.

Automatic programmable one to four tank systems.

Maintains a fuel condition exceeding the engine manufacturer’s ISO cleanliness levels.

Description:

These systems are designed to prevent unexpected engine shut down from contaminated fuel.

A critical power systems reliability is only as good as the condition of its fuel.

Virtually all diesel fuel contains some moisture. Additional water builds in tanks as atmospheric moisture condenses. Moisture can accumulate in diesel tanks as condensate droplets on exposed tank surfaces, as dissolved water in the fuel, and as water bottoms beneath the fuel. Microbes depend on this water for growth.

Additionally, microbes depend on the organic and inorganic molecules in diesel fuel for nutrition. Consequently, some species attack the fuel directly, growing at the expense of hydrocarbons and non-hydrocarbon fuel components. The biodegradation of fuel, in support of microbial growth, is a direct impact of contamination.

Indirect effects include:

  • Engine Failure from clogged filters
  • Microbial influenced corrosion
  • Sludge formation
  • Organic acid accumulation
  • Corrosive deposits on engine parts (injectors, cylinder linings, etc.)

Annual tank cleaning may not be the answer to safe fuel:

Fueltec’s automatic filtrationsystems work 24-7

to eliminate the microbes moist environment and prevent a rapid infestation in the fuel storage tank. In addition, fine filters remove bacteria and fungi colony strings that may have broken away from the parent colony and are floating in the fuel.
