When storing fuels such as diesel, bio-diesel and industrial heating oil it is likely that over time deposits of sludge, sediment and water will develop and contaminate the fuel. If left untreated this can reduce the efficiency of or even cause expensive damage to your pump, engine or generator. For example, contamination of the fuel supply for your generator could lead to the failure of your back-up electricity supply. We offer a fuel polishing service as a solution to these problems.
One of the most obvious signs of contamination is the appearance of emulsification in your fuel supply, and at the most advanced stage free flowing puddles of water can be seen. As water is initially dissolved within the fuel, the early stages of contamination are difficult to identify and can often only be determined by analysis of a sample. Fuel polishing can help reduce engine or heating system failures by optimising operating temperatures and improving reliability and performance.
