With the recent change in UK Fuel Regulations and the resultant increase in the use of Bio-Diesel in traditional diesel, fuel polishing is a major consideration to reduce the risk to generators from fuel degradation.
Power Electrics fuel polishing systems decrease the strain of fuel storage; they are installed next to your tank and autonomously clean the fuel without the need to have your generator running. By recirculating the fuel, the system removes water and foreign matter that builds up, ensuring your fuel is kept in optimum condition and that your generator is protected from fuel contamination issues.
WHY CLEAN YOUR FUEL?
Fuel (EN590 derivatives diesel, gas, oil, MDO and similar) is susceptible to many different infections such as water, bacterial content, sludge, asphaltines, mould and more. 2011 saw the introduction of the new revision of the EN590 fuel regulation. In simple terms, this allows for an increased biodiesel mix and a lowering of the sulphur content to virtually zero.
DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LIGHTS GO OUT
Fuel contamination in a generator fuel tank can have a dramatic effect on your business continuity plans. Contaminations should be caught by the primary filters, but bacteria - the most common type, is typically a large biomass quantity that will rapidly block filters and, if left uncontrolled, can double in population every 20 minutes.
Worse still, if the filters are not able to cope, or are not water separators, the contamination is likely to find its way to the injectors. If this happens, the most probable outcome is a costly engine repair.
