Diesel fuel tanks are an important tool in fleet, mining, and marine operations. They provide both a chance to save time and money, as well as the opportunity to insure the use of reliably high quality fuel. As with most tools, maintenance is the key to insuring consistently good performance.
In partnership with Innospec’s laboratories, EMTEC tracks and trends our clients stored fuel quality by regular testing of tank bottoms and provides reports and remedial action steps when required. It is becoming increasingly clear to OEM’s and end users that the presence of water, metals and sediment in storage tank bottoms is probably the leading contributor to failed injection systems and more importantly stuck injectors which can result in catastrophic failures. Maintaining the quality of stored fuel and keeping it clean and dry is a necessity with today’s newer HPCR engines.
