The majority of engine failure is due to the damaging effect contaminated fuel has on fuel injection systems. Contamination, such as dirt, rust, and other forms of particulate, create abrasive wear throughout the fuel system – and most critically – the fuel injector. This wear allows for more fuel to pass into the combustion chamber when it shouldn’t. The side effects can lead to engine knock, hot spots, excessive fuel consumption, excessive exhaust gas temperatures, and increased emissions.

Corporations around the globe rely on their fuel system to function as intended. If they don’t, the results can be catastrophic to the business. We all can agree that downtime just isn’t an option, but reality says that there are natural and systematic flaws in all fuel systems that leave businesses vulnerable. The intelligent approach to securing a fuel system requires ensuring the proper operation of all components and integrating redundancy in monitoring these critical components.
Intelligent Fuel Management Practices
Fuel filtration ensures particulate, sludge, and other forms of detrimental contamination do not damage your fuel system. To ensure your fuel is clean at all times there will be a need for continued maintenance
Water is the most damaging contaminant in fuel, as it is the catalyst to a host of problems that can destroy critical engine components.
The ultimate way of ensuring system uptime and functionality requires monitoring system assets
As soon as an alarm is triggered, staff is immediately notified, and it is critical that the fault is addressed as soon as possible.
Fuel conditioning reduces the size of particulate clusters, preventing frequent filter clogging and ensuring more complete combustion of fuel.
Fuel additives ensure optimal stability, complete combustibility, and keep your fuel ready for use for months. Active ingredients include combustion catalyst, dispersant, corrosion inhibitor, anti-gelling agent, and lubricity enhancer
Knowing the absolute status of each component, down to the individual function, is the key to total fuel management.
Communicating with management and management systems can be the difference between reliability and downtime.
