Generator tanks are highly susceptible to contamination, due to prolonged fuel storage and infrequent use. Many emergency generators are also subject to JCAHO and NFPA testing and fuel cleanliness standards.
FuelCare samples and evaluates fuel and maintains fuel tanks through tank cleaning and micro filtration to remove water and contaminants. Our proprietary fuel dialysis system uses 3-inch intake and return hoses, along with a powerful pump to circulate your fuel through our particulate filters many times during each cleaning service.
There is no need to empty fuel from your tank before our cleaning service, and your generator remains operational during the entire process.
Our equipment pulls your existing fuel, cleans it several times over (using filters as small as 1 micron), and returns it to your tank. Only water, rust, contaminants and any waste fuel are removed. All good fuel is returned to your tank.
We treat the fuel and tank with high strength, fuel-soluble biocide (DOW Chemicals FuelSaver) to control microbial growth in the tank.
We provide full documentation of all of our work, including before and after pictures, in-house or lab testing as needed, satisfying JCAHO and NFPA standards for annual testing.
Regular fuel testing and cleaning is also a key element in DR – Disaster Recovery plans.
In the event of an earthquake, buildings shake – including the generator fuel tank. Any water or sediment in the fuel tank will get stirred up just as the generator is starting up, which can plug filters very quickly. Plugged filters can restrict fuel flow, leading to the generator not achieving full power or possibly shutting down, just when it is needed most.
