What is Diesel Fuel Polishing?
Buying diesel fuel in bulk and storing it on-site is a great way to save money and is convenient for refueling. The problem with storing diesel fuel on-site is that it starts to degrade while it sits in a tank. Diesel fuel polishing is the process that we use to filter out microbial contaminations, water, insoluble byproduct buildup, and particles.
Are You OK with Filters and Additives?
Degraded diesel fuel can cause total engine failure if it is not addressed right away. Trusting your stock filtration system and off the shelf diesel additives to keep your engine running on contaminated fuel is a bad idea. A machine’s filtration system is important but it’s not made to handle all the contaminants that your machine can face.
As for diesel fuel additives, they have their place in the life of an engine. However, they don’t magically make dirty diesel clean. They work by adding something to the fuel, not taking contaminants out of it.
Polishing your Diesel Fuel
Microbes, debris and water buildup in diesel fuel are not easy to treat and can’t be solved with regular filters and additives, they need to be comprehensively filtered out of the fuel in storage tanks. Our system extracts the diesel from your tank and passes it through a series of advanced filters, each one removing smaller contaminants than the one before. Ultimately, we filter out microbial sludge buildup, floating microbes, dirt/debris and finally extracting the water from the fuel.
Additional Necessary Services
Polishing diesel fuel and returning it to the tank it came out of will just re-contaminate the fuel unless the tank has been cleaned. Our tank cleaning service can scour and decontaminate oil and fuel tanks and their systems. We offer:
- High-Velocity Spraying
- Chemical Flushing
- Inline Flushing
- Superior additive addition
Pre & Post Testing:
We can analyze the purity of diesel fuel before and after its polished to ensure that you are benchmarking your fuel’s quality and analyzing trends.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
If you have any diesel fuel or oil stored in tanks for any amount of time, you have some sort of contamination – guaranteed! Reliability on your machines and equipment is critical for any business, spending money on repairs and replacement parts such as injectors and filters can add up quickly.
Mission critical facilities such as hospitals and communication centers often rely on diesel generators to carry the electrical load in emergency situations. Will your generator be up to the task?
