How We Clean Your Tanks

Our industrial-strength tank cleaning system forces fuel to move at high-speed through mechanical filters to thoroughly clean the tank and polish the fuel; the process removes water, solids and biological contaminates from the tank.

The speed of fuel cleaning creates turbulence in your tank, picking up rust and particles from every corner.  Best of all, it works fast, so you will experience minimal down time while your fuel system is efficiently cleaned and restored to full working order.

We take care to make tank cleaning as quick, easy and predictable as possible.

  • We schedule our work on a day and time convenient for you.
  • Safety first – we’ll set out safety cones to protect the tank we’re working on.
  • We’ll work with you or your pump company to pull the turbine out for inspection and cleaning.  We use the turbine port as part of the cleaning process.
  • We turn off the pumps only for the particular tank we’re working on, so you have minimal downtime.
  • We clean the tanks, apply biocide, and circulate the fuel thoroughly to continue killing bacteria.
  • We move quickly to minimize your downtime, and get your pumps running quickly and reliably.

More Efficient Pumps with the FUELCARE System

Time is money when it comes to pumping fuel. Customers expect to pull into a gas station, fill their tank quickly and have the whole transaction complete within two to three minutes.  When customers fuel rapidly, they are more likely to return to your station, and shop at your store.

When fuel is pumping slowly, it takes longer to fill the fuel tank, causing frustration and sales slow down.

At the root of these problems are fuel contaminants that plug filters in the dispenser, and cause slow flow at the pump.

Clean your tanks, and have more happy drivers visit your convenience store!

Microbes that grow in fuel live in the sludge and water found at the bottom of fuel tanks. The contamination the bacteria causes fouls the entire fuel and pump system.

You can trust FuelCare’s fuel filtration system to clean tanks, filter fuel and remove the contaminants in your underground storage tanks. To understand more about fuel contamination and how to resolve the problem, call FuelCare. We solve fuel problems!

Maintenance Checklist

You can reduce the chance of future problems by following FuelCare’s preventive maintenance program. We’ll work with you to develop a treatment schedule which, when used consistently, will control harmful microbes in your underground tanks.

To maintain peak fuel performance and keep your pumps running smoothly, we recommend these steps:

  1. Check the flow rate at the dispenser. The rate should be approximately 9 gallons per minute. If the flow rate is significantly below this, then:
  2. Check your fuel filters. They provide early warning signs of contamination in the fuel tank.
  3. Keep water out of fuel. Water is the host environment of the microorganisms that cause fuel contamination.
  4. Determine which way the tank “tilts” or if it is flat. Check for water at the deep end of the tank.
  5. Keep water and other contaminants out of the fill pipe contaminant sump. Liquids left in the sump often end up in the tank.
  6. Regularly treat your tank with biocide. A fuel-soluble biocide is needed to control microbial contamination in fuel tanks.
