Fuel Conditioning systems

From the refinery to your tank, throughout the distribution system, fuels are subject to contamination whenever they are transferred or stored. Transferring fuel may allow water and dirt into the system. Stored fuel is subject to water intrusion and condensation; rust, and microbial growth, as well as oxidation and breakdown. The end result is a continuous accumulation of contaminants that end up being dispensed into your fuel tank, where they can clog filters and damage engines. It's never a good idea, economically or otherwise, to pump dirty fuel into your expensive equipment. Once onboard, fuel is still subject to continued contamination while filling, and through water condensation and microbial growth.

Installing a Racor Fuel Polisher, either as a continuous loop on any fuel tank, or as part of a marine day-tank transfer system, takes the contamination burden off onboard filtration. Protecting onboard filters preserves water removal efficiency and greatly extends life of the high efficiency filters needed to protect today's engines. By circulating fuel multiple passes through one polishing filter, onboard filtration systems need less change-outs and can perform at peak efficiency. Fuel polishing is especially important for standby power, as degraded fuel often clogs filters within minutes, leading to engine shutdown.
