MAIN PUMP

The FPS-12 waste pump is a positive-displacement type, heavy-duty unit. It is sealed and maintenance free and is a specific-purpose pump designed for operation with water, diesel, and biodiesel fuels.

FILTRATION MODULE

The FPS-12 canister is manufactured to ASME standards (non-stamped) and contains three replaceable filter elements. Elements are available from 30 down to 2 microns. Elements are field replaceable, which is easily done by shutting the system down and removing the filter lid. Access is through a hinged top and front cabinet panel. A pressure/vacuum release valve is provided to facilitate vacuum break.

EXTERNAL OPERATORS

A four-line LCD display provides readout of the current time, operating statistics and alarm conditions. Oil-tight selector switches and indicators provide on-off-auto and indicator functions. Operator lights are LED types with long-life to eliminate frequent bulb changes or missed indications.

REMOTE MONITORING

Remote contacts are provided for shutdown and alarm operation. FPS can include dial-up and network connected remote capabilities.

PLC FUNCTIONS

The microprocessor based PLC consists of an industrial microcontroller and a 4 line LCD display. The PLC contains a real-time clock with a ten-year rated (field replaceable) battery backup. The controller manages all functions of the fuel purification system.

REMOTE MONITORING

"Dry" contacts are provided for shutdown and alarm monitoring.

INDICATORS AND ALARMS

An audible alarm is provided to alert personnel to required filter changes or other error conditions.

TRANSDUCERS AND SENSORS

An electronic transducer is provided to allow the PLC to determine when filter change and other operational errors occur. Flood and waste-overfill sensors provide the PLC with indication of those respective conditions.

STARTUP

The system is preset with the appropriate time values to process two complete tank purification cycles per week. Alarm indication for a Filter Change is provided.

CABINET

The FPS cabinet is a heavy-duty industrial enameled steel cabinet. All components are primed and painted to insure corrosion protection and an attractive finish. The standard colors are White and Green.

MULTI-TANK MANIFOLD

A valve manifold and programming option provide capabilities for split and multi-tank applications. The multi-tank option supports from 2 - 5 tanks.

MANUAL WASTE DRAIN

Deletes the auto-drain feature and holding tank.
