Onsite Fuel Polishing

Poor fuel quality is the leading cause of engine performance problems. Even minuscule amounts of contaminants can cause loss of power, incomplete combustion, excessive emissions and injector failure leading to increased operating costs. 


What Is Fuel Polishing?

Fuel Polishing is the process of removing sludge, water and solids from fuel and oil tanks, restoring and optimizing fuel quality.

All Storage tanks naturally accumulate water, solids, and sludge resulting from condensation and the degradation of fuel and oil. Diesel fuel in a holding tank starts to degrade in just six months from bacteria growth, dirt, water, and other contaminants. The more fuel we turn over through a tank, the more debris and water will accumulate at the bottom.

The average diesel fuel is combusted in an engine within 18 to 24 days from leaving the refinery. Because of this, oil companies are not required to produce a diesel fuel that is capable of being stored for long term. Many owners of stored fuel are either unaware or unconcerned about their fuel’s condition. Industry experts agree that 12 months is the longest reasonable estimate for diesel fuel storage. It is recommended that the fuel be cleaned and treated properly once a year for the average fuel system and twice a year for mission-critical facilities such as hospitals and data centers. 


How It Works

One of our trained technicians will come to your facility or jobsite with a mobile fuel polishing system. 


Fuel oil is pumped from the tank, through an oil-water-sludge separator, then through a fuel conditioner and back into the tank.


Stage 1: The separator/coalescer removes water and particulate that clog filters and harm injectors.

Stage 2: The fuel conditioner reconditions and stabilizes the fuel, reversing the process of fuel deterioration.

Stage 3: The industrial type water block fine filter removes emulsified water and very fine solids down to 3 microns. 


Benefits of Fuel Polishing

  • Reduced maintenance costs

  • Increased equipment performance and life span

  • Eliminate need to replace contaminated fuel

  • More environmentally friendly

  • Polishing removes unwanted sediments causing hydrocarbons to burn better leading to cleaner exhaustion.
