FUEL POLISHING FOR ALL FUELS
Clean Fuel Tanks, Remove Phase Separation, and Save Money by Keeping Fuel Water-Free
FUELTEC’s air-operated mobile fuel tank cleaning systems are intrinsically safe for ALL FUELS including Gasoline, Diesel, Ethanol Blends, Avgas and Jet Fuel.
Most fuel contaminants are heavier than fuel and will settle to the fuel tank bottom if undisturbed. To remove this contamination, it is best to remove free and emulsified water and filter the contents in the lower 5%-15% of the tank. This remediation process will keep from mixing the clean fuel with the contaminated fuel.
Fueltec’s fuel polishing systems clean tanks with NO LOSS of product, saving time for you and money for your customers.

CLEAN FUEL SOLUTION
Fueltec offers a clean fuel solution to remove water, sludge and sediment down to one micron from gasoline, diesel and ethanol blend storage tanks.
ATTENTION: PETROLEUM CONTRACTORS AND OIL COMPANIES
Are your customers complaining that your fuel dispenser nozzles are slow? This could mean clogged filters, which in turn means there is moisture in the fuel storage tank. Moisture is causing microbe growth in diesel or phase separation in E-10.
Phase Separation happens to ethanol blended gasoline when water is present. When gasoline containing Ethanol comes in contact with water—either liquid or in the form of humidity—the Ethanol will absorb some or all of that water. When it reaches a saturation point, the Ethanol and water will Phase Separate, actually coming out of solution and forming distinct layers on the fuel tank bottom. The result could lower the octane to a point where the engine will not run; or if the alcohol/water mixture is ingested into the engine, sever damage can occur.
Fuel Polishing Benefits for the Fuel Retailer:
REDUCE CUSTOMER COMPLAINTS
A proactive service program with A Fueltec Mobile System, all but eliminates slow flowing dispenser nozzles. Using Fueltec’s latest proprietary technology and equipment you can remove the filter clogging moisture and bacteria from fuel storage tanks thereby reducing the need to change dispenser filters by as much as 80%.
ELIMINATION OF DOWNTIME
Fuel Storage tanks that are properly cleaned and maintained with Fueltec’s Mobile Systems suffer far less down time then tanks that are only serviced when pumps slow downand water is found on tank bottoms.
ELIMINATE EXPENSIVE EMERGENCY SERVICE CALLS
Emergency service calls are sometimes done with vacuum service trucks to remove the tank bottom water. Using vacuum trucks without fuel/water separators; fuel retailers can lose as much as 300 to 400 gallons of product along with the water.
