The storage of fuel has the constant issue of atmospheric moisture ingression, this is a problem affecting fuel quality.
Storage facilities and the environment heat and cool with solar radiant heat, and together with weather, and the lowering of fuel volumes in storage draw in humidity through its breathers. The hydroscopic nature of fuels raises the moisture content of the fuel allowing bacteria to grow and the combustibility of fuels to become compromised in quality.
The combination of our proven non-toxic- eco-friendly method using the PFMBlue range assists your assets in maintaining fuel quality with an improved cost-effective
The PFM units provide method of disrupting and killing the microbes that form “Diesel Bug” affecting your engine and fuel systems.
The units have the advantage of no chemicals, no slurry in tanks, and kill various combination of yeasts and microbes. The result is a reduced biomass which reduces filter blockages, pump and component damage by attacking the mass at a molecular level.
When recirculation, is installed in line with the engine supply or as part of a fuel conditioning /polishing system it will stop the biomass from reoccurring
The PFMBlue unit also reduces the moisture content of the fuel stopping “Diesel Bug” growth from occurring as without the presence of moisture the biomass (sludge) cannot continue to build up.
These damaging fuel moisture levels can be reduced and maintained below 100 ppm (0.01% w/w) using PFMBlue.
Proven benefits of Clean & Dry Fuel:
· Improved starting, performance and reliability
· Less emissions & consumption
· Reduced maintenance & costly downtime
· Cleaner lines, tanks, systems.
· Less component failure due to compression of water
