FUEL POLISHING & FUEL POLISHING SERVICES
WHAT IS FUEL POLISHING?
Fuel polishing is the removal of harmful contaminants such as water, rust, microbial infestations and other solid particulate contamination such as sludge from within the fuel tank via multi-staged particle filtration and coalescing water filters..
Why should I polish my fuel?
Water and particle contamination within your fuel alters the fuels lubricity and forms a build up in your injection system, which causes accelerated wear and decreased power. Contaminated fuel is the primary cause of engine and fuel system failure. By polishing your fuel, you reduce the risk of these failures, and also extend the life of injectors and injection components. An added benefit is the increase in power and increase in fuel efficiency. Fuel polishing is the most efficient and cost effective way of removing the harmful contaminants that lurk in your fuel tanks.
"BUT MY FUEL LOOKS CLEAN...."
The human eye is only capable of viewing sizes down to 40µm (microns), whereas the World Wide Fuel Charter measures fuel at three micron sizes, 4 µm, 6µm and 14 µm, well below that of which the human eye can detect.
"BUT WE TURN OVER OUR FUEL TOO QUICKLY...."
All fuel will have some form of contamination, and that contamination will accumulate over time and settle to the bottom of your tank. It doesn't take long before this will get to a critical level where this will start to cause early wear on components and decrease fuel efficiency and power. Think of your fuel tank as a snow globe. Refueling your tank "shakes the snowglobe" putting all the accumulated contaminants in solution with your fuel.
Gone are the days of costly pump outs. We can remove the harmful contaminants with our specialised equipment at a fraction of the cost.
