Fuel Polishing

Dependable fuel polishing for critical systems

Almost 1/4 of business generator failures are due to dirty fuel. With the recent change in UK fuel regulations and the subsequent increase in FAME and biodiesel content, fuel polishing is a key contributor to help decrease the risk to generators from fuel degradation.

Let us help protect your investment with our industry leading fuel polishing service. We have an expert team on hand who can come to your storage facility and restore your fuel without disruption. Call 0330 123 1144 to save your fuel. 

What is fuel polishing?

Fuel polishing should be one of the most important considerations for anybody who relies on a steady supply of fuel.

Before any remedial work is carried out on your fuel, our engineers will take a sample of your fuel to determine its quality and advise you on the most suitable course of action. Once analysis is complete, we will visit your site with a fuel polishing unit to carry out the cleaning process.

Will fuel polishing cause any disruption to my business?

Fuel polishingFuel polishing causes zero disruption to your operations. The fuel remains in-situ and is passed through the unit where it’s cleaned, purified and returned to your tank all in one motion. By recirculating the fuel, we will remove any water, diesel bug and particulate contaminants that have built up, ensuring your generator is protected from fuel contamination issues.

What are the benefits of fuel polishing?

Fuel polishing is one of the most cost-effective treatments available when all factors are considered, including:

  • Zero disruption to services
  • No need to re-purchase a new fuel supply
  • Avoids the waste and cost of disposing of contaminated fuel

Why do you need clean fuel?

It may seem strange at first, the idea of needing to clean fuel, but a poor quality, contaminated supply can cost you money in a variety of ways if left untreated:

  • Cross-contamination – contaminated fuel at the bottom of your tank will mix with any new fuel added to your storage facility
  • Decreased efficiency – dirty fuel will gradually degrade in quality and damage your fuel supply system, engines and machinery
  • Reliability issues – if you need your fuel in an emergency, you need to know it’s of a high enough quality. If not, it will be useless as a backup source and your business will have no way of operating

Can all contaminated fuels be cleaned?

There is a limit on how effective fuel polishing can be and after conducting our tests, we will have a far better idea about how effective the remedial work will be.

Should we find that the fuel is too damaged to be effectively cleaned and brought back to good use, we recommend removing and replacing the waste fuel. We would strongly advise against keeping this fuel in your storage facility as it could cause catastrophic damage to your equipment.

If you do opt in to remove and replace your waste fuel, our fuel uplift and removal service will ensure your waste fuel is safely and legally removed from your site. We can then optionally supply you with a new fresh batch of the highest quality fuel on the market.

Fuel can be a big expense for many businesses, so why not clean your fuel rather than having to fork out for costly replacements? For more information and to learn more about our fuel polishing services, get in touch with our fuel polishing experts by calling us today on 0330 123 1144.
