ABOUT US

Fuel Purification represents over 36 years of experience in the diesel fuel quality business. Whether you are looking for a Fuel Purification System in a new project or in a retrofit, we can assist you in choosing the correct system. From our facility, we can handle orders of all sizes. In hospitals, datacenters and in every mission critical application, our machines are engineered to ensure that your fuel will be ready when you need it.

Fuel purification systems provides solutions for stored diesel generator fuel cleaning, fuel polishing, fuel filter to clean fuel, fuel contamination, fuel filtration & generator maintenance services along with quality bulk-stored diesel fuel filter & maintenance systems.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW

The Fuel Purification System is a self-contained fuel quality maintenance system developed for stored diesel and biodiesel fuels. The system effectively removes water and solids to 2 microns, insuring the availability of clean, dry, contaminant-free fuel for standby diesel generators and other fuel storage facilities. By maintaining clean, dry fuel, the Fuel Purification System eliminates the need for biocides and chemical additives, resulting in additional savings and ensuring quick starts and trouble-free operation of your engines. The Fuel Purification Systems can service tanks up to 60,000 gallons in size and are fully automated with remote monitoring capabilities. Fuel Purification units are attractively packaged in a rugged enameled steel cabinet and are designed with high quality industrial components to assure prolonged life and trouble-free operation.

FUEL PURIFICATION SYSTEMS PROCESS

The fuel is pulled by vacuum from the main storage tank.

 

The fuel is then pulled into the filtration canister by vacuum.

 

The fuel is directed down through a thrash cone and is spun in a circular motion.

 

The circular motion creates centrifugal force which forces the water to be separated.

 

The separated water is then pulled to the bottom of the filtration canister by gravity. (Water is Heavier than Oil).

The water, after accumulating on the bottom of the canister and rising to engage the first water sensing probe, activates a valve and turns on a pump.

The removal of the water is achieved by opening a solenoid valve and starting a small pump which pumps the water into a containment vessel.

If the water containment vessel becomes full, the system will sense this and shut down until someone disposes of the water in the containment vessel.

Should water continue to rise past the first probe and engage the higher probe, then the entire system is shut down and an alarm is sounded that there is high water in the canister.

Meanwhile... The oil continues to rise to the top of the canister... Where it first has to go through 80 micron mesh metal screen... Then through 2 micron filters before entering hollow pedestals connected to a manifold and then exiting the canister.

The oil is then pulled down to the suction side of the pump and is pumped out the pressure side of the pump and returns to the main storage tank.

This process continues on a daily basis until the bulk stored diesel fuel has undergone two complete tank volume changes per week.

The P.L.C has a clock that controls run times and is adjustable to accommodate many different tank sizes.

There is also a containment area at the bottom of our system. If for any reason oil or water accumulates over 2 inches in this containment area, the system would sense this and automatically shut down.

TRADE OFFS

DOWN TIME VS. MAINTENANCE/LOST FUEL VS. FUEL PURIFICATION SYSTEM

Fuel Purification uses a vacuum system rather than pressure to clean the fuel. This has significant cost and efficiency advantages when compared to alternative ways to ensure your bulk stored diesel fuel stays clean all the time.

Generator Starts when you need it to

Lower Maintenance Cost on Standby Generator

Lower Fuel Cost
