Removes water and contamination from FUEL STORAGE TANKS and BOWSERS
If you use any type of diesel, you will need to prevent fuel contamination, which will harm your expensive machinery and can lead to breakdown problems which waste valuable time. Plant fitted with modern, high-pressure fuel injection systems are particularly vulnerable. Sand and grit are two main contaminants, but water can also be highly damaging, leading to performance and reliability issues. The Fuel-Guard VORTEX is designed to remove and protect your equipment from these hazards.
Biodiesel – increased usage, increased risk
Fuel legislation is designed to lower harmful emissions. This, coupled with the expanding global demand for fuel, has increased the use of available bio-diesel.
Bio-diesel poses a greater risk of water contamination than petro-diesel, because water is introduced to bio-diesel during production. Bio-diesel also absorbs water from the atmosphere. As temperatures rise, water is absorbed into the fuel, as they fall, water condenses out, forming harmful ‘free water’ which sinks to the tank bottom. This ‘free water’ can wreak havoc on your fuel system and engine.
How the VORTEX works
By using cyclonic and capillary technology the incoming fuel is forced through the units internal baffle system which creates a swirling centrifugal action subjecting the fuel to a constant force, water and dirt being denser components will be separated from the lighter component of the fuel itself.
This is the first cleaning stage were the largest and heaviest impurities accumulate and descend into the lower collection chamber.
At the second stage the velocity of the fuel slows down allowing any free water and other impurities to maintain their mass preventing any emulsification within the fuel, these impurities fall out and sink into lower collection chamber and remain there until purged.
In the final stage fuel passes through a bifurcation process allowing small water droplets and particulate to be coalesced out of the fuel stream.
All these 3 stages are carried out simultaneously which results in clean fuel rising to the top of the unit ensuring a continuous supply of clean free fuel to your equipment.
