Why Fuel Tank Cleaning Professionals Choose Fueltec’s Mobile Systems
- Fueltec’s fuel polishing systems are built to last for years of service. After years of experience with fuel tank professionals in the field; Fueltec has seen the highly corrosive nature of todays fuels and now builds all filter and separator housings from stainless steel. Tires and wheels are flat free for easy movement on the jobsite. Chassis are powder coated steel.
Cost of Operation:
- Because the first thing a fuel polishing system may see when fluid is vacuumed from a fuel tank bottom is water, rust, sludge, bacteria and fungi; and because reports from the field tell us a 1000 gallon diesel tank may contain as much as 10 gallons of sludge and we have seen over 100 gallons of sludge in a 10,000 gallon tank; Fueltec’s mobile systems use a Primary Filter using low cost one (1) gallon filter bags to collect this contamination. The Fueltec 5 micron bags cost less then $6.00 each.Compare that with some competition’s filters priced at $30.00-$80.00 ea.
- It is easy to remove three or more inches of water from a fuel storage tank with a simple pump. However when you get it down to two (2”) inches or less of water in the tank your pump will start to suck up tiny droplets of fuel with the water. That’s where Fueltec’s high quality water separator out does the competition.Common Centrifugal water separators will get out the big droplets of water, but the small droplets will be left behind to coalesce and grow bacteria, clog filters, damage injectors, and corrode fuel tanks.Fueltec uses a military type micro-glass & Teflon separation process approved for use on jet fuel to remove even the tiniest water droplets down to less than 50 parts per million.
- Many competitive fuel polishing systems have a contaminate storage capacity of one or two quarts, some even a gallon or two. When empting the contaminates you have to stop the system, open a drain valve, then open an air inlet valve and wait for the liquid to drain from the system, then close the valves, then start the system again. (hopefully the pump didn’t lose its prime in the process.)The Fueltec Systems will push out the contaminates (one gallon or one thousand gallons) while the system is running, never having to stop the system until the fuel in the tank is clean and dry.
