Automated Fuel Cleaning
and Treatment Systems

In emergency power generation applications, a gen-set must be ready to run during very critical times. The diesel-powered engines used in these units often sit without operation for long periods of time until they are needed to perform. To ensure these engines and generator components operate at optimum efficiency, Algae-X® has developed two types of systems. The Wall Mounted Series of Fuel Polishing Systems are made for installations that can provide for placement of the system out of the weather, either in an existing cabinet or housing, or where the entire system is indoors. We refer to these systems as "Wall Mounted Systems" as they are mounted on or within existing structures. Configurations include 12 or 24V systems and 110V/220V systems, both manual and automated with leak detection and other features.

The STS-6000 and STS-7000 Series Automated Fuel Filtration Systems are configured within cabinets that allow the entire system to be outside and subject to the elements. The system is designed to run automatically at predetermined times to clean and filter water, sludge and tank sediment from fuel storage tanks. The Programmable STS-7000 Series Automated Fuel Filtration Systems tank management of your fuel to a higher level with internet connectivity and the ease of touch screen controls at your fingertips.

Gums and Resins in your Fuel

"The gums and resins that occur in diesel fuel are the result of dissolved oxidation products in the fuel that do not evaporate easily. The products that are dissolved in the fuel also do not burn cleanly. Excessive gum in the fuel will coat the inside of fuel lines, pumps, and injectors. Excessive gum will also interfere with the close tolerances of the moving parts of the fuel systems. Gum and resin in the fuel will also cause the filter to plug rapidly. Oxidation of the fuel will occur and the formation of additional gums and resins will occur during fuel storage. The storage time for fuel must be minimized in order to help reduce the formation of gums and resins.

Note: Even when all fuel storage maintenance practices are followed, Cat recommends a maximum of 1 year from production for distillate diesel fuel storage, and a maximum of 6 months from production for biodiesel and blended biodiesel storage. Storage life for biodiesel and biodiesel blends that are greater than B20 may be much shorter than 6 months."

AXI Automated Fuel Cleaning and Treatment Systems Extend the Life of Diesel fuel, Prevents Formation of Gums and Resins, and Maintains Optimal Fuel Quality in Stored Diesel Fuel

Using the right STS-6000 or STS-7000 Series unit for your application equipped to your needs, fuel stays within its required specification to deliver efficient, clean and uninterrupted power, periodic tank cleaning is not required, and downtime is reduced.

There is a system that is right for your installation and for your pocketbook. Whether for an emergency service facility (police 911, fire, EMS, etc.), data processing center, cell tower, or an office or industrial facility, the appropriate configuration is here for you.
