What Is Fuel Polishing?
Fuel Polishing is the process of removing sludge, water and solids from fuel and oil tanks, restoring and optimizing fuel
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
