All storage tanks naturally accumulate water, inorganic solids, and sludge resulting from condensation and the degradation of fuel. The more often that fuel is "turned over" in a tank, the more debris and water will accumulate at the bottom of the tank.
Fuel in storage provides reserve energy to power generators and other equipment when most needed in the future. It is the condition of the fuel in your tanks that determine engine performance and emergency power reliability. When the lights go out, you need energy that is safe, efficient and ready.
Today's diesel injection systems are vast improvements over systems considered state-of-the-art just ten years ago. With pressures of 30,000 psi and more, contaminant particle size impact engine component wear and performance, and the presence of organic contamination (terms like algae, gum, wax, resin, varnish, tar, asphaltene, etc.) clogs filters and is responsible for carbon deposits, corrosion, failing injection systems, loss of power, incomplete combustion, and excessive emissions.
AXI® Fuel Conditioning and Filtration Systems go a step beyond tank cleaning by eliminating the need for costly, periodic manual tank cleaning while stabilizing and extending the shelf life of fuel. This is extremely important for all applications of long-term fuel storage, especially emergency power generators. If an STS Automated System is not installed on a fuel storage tank, an Algae-X Mobil Tank Cleaning System can be used to periodically clean the tank and restore the stored fuel to Optimal Quality.
The MTC HC-150 system is engineered as a mobil tank cleaning system for efficiently removing sludge, inorganic contaminants, and water from large-volume fuel tanks. Degraded fuel is returned to a clear and bright state, returning combustibility and efficient operation as well as removing the harmful deposits and contaminants that damage engine components and make your power system exposed to unplanned downtime. With the adoption of a protocol that that periodically restores and optimizes fuel quality after the initial cleaning, reliable reserve energy will be available when you need it. The MTC HC-150 is a four-stage mobile fuel conditioning and tank cleaning system that is mounted on two metal forklift-style skids. The two skids are connected via a 2.5” hose that has cam and groove fittings on each end, and a cable that is used to connect the sensors on the second skid to the control panel components.
The system is designed as a "fuel dialysis system" that circulates and cleans fuel by pumping it from the tank, processing it through both skids of the engineered fuel cleaning system and then back into the tank. The system can also be used to clean fuel or oil by pumping it from one tank through the MTC HC-150 into another tank or suitable container.
Many happy customers have found that an existing contamination problem that promised high expense could be averted. Removing and paying the disposal cost of a large volume of fuel that was viewed as waste, or at best fuel that could only be used as a lower grade fuel for burning in a boiler, appeared to be the only option. In addition, the long and costly burden of manually cleaning the tank added insult to injury! The process of returning the fuel to Optimal Quality, and simultaneously cleaning the tank while the fuel was still in the tank, has resulted in some customers saving more than the cost of the equipment investment.
AFC-705 FUEL CATALYST
The use of Algae-X® AFC-705 Fuel Catalyst is an essential part of any tank cleaning procedure, to more rapidly and efficiently decontaminate and clean the entire fuel system.
Before dosing the tank with AFC-705, remove as much of the sludge and free water as possible.
Adding the Algae-X® Fuel Catalyst (AFC-705) to the tank will speed up the cleaning process by breaking down and dissolving the sludge covering the tank walls and baffles. AFC-705 will decontaminate areas and sections of the tank that are out of reach of the suction hose.
Using a higher concentration of one to twenty five hundred (1:2500) instead of one to five thousand (1:5000) has proven to be very helpful in accelerating the rate of dissolving the sludge. Even higher doses of AFC-705 may be necessary depending on contamination level of fuel.
AFC-705 is a full spectrum fuel additive containing combustion catalyst, surfactant, detergent, dispersant, corrosion inhibitor, lubricity enhancers and fuel stabilizer that eliminates the need for expensive toxic biocides.
The skid-mounted design allows for flexibility in use. It can be permanently assigned to maintenance of a single large tank, or it can be mounted to be truly mobile in a trailer or truck to move from tank to tank to execute a periodic fuel maintenance program in a plant, office, or industrial campus, or service the needs of multiple companies by a tank cleaning service.
The MTC HC-150 is equipped with a self-priming positive-displacement sliding vane pump rated at 150 GPM. The system’s maximum flow rate depends on factors such as: suction lift, discharge head, hose length and diameter, pressure drop over the primary and secondary filters and the water separator.
AXI’s® mobile tank cleaning systems excel in combining High Capacity Filtration & Water Separation with Compact Design and Low Operating Cost to provide Optimal Fuel Quality for Peak Engine Performance and Reliability. The MTC HC-150 System is a four stage fuel conditioning and tank cleaning system that removes sludge and water from fuel and oil tanks, restoring and optimizing fuel quality in the same operation. It combines high capacity filtration and water separation with compact design and low operating cost to provide optimal fuel quality for peak engine performance and reliability.
The Smart Filtration Controller will indicate an "alarm" and interrupt pump operation whenever suction is too high (change the appropriate bag filter(s)), Pressure is too high (change BOTH of the final filters), or water is detected in the bottom of the RCM (drain the RCM water into a containment vessel via the DRAIN Valve – not the Purge valve). After correcting the “Alarm” event, press the "Alarm Reset" button to clear the alert and re-start the pump. Pump will ramp-up to last pump speed as was previously set in the Speed Indicator Window.
Because of the variability of flow with the MTC-HC150, it can utilize a low pump rate and, using only the primary skid, the HC150 will easily remove sludge and water from the bottom of your tank without creating a "Milk Shake Effect" by mixing fuel, water and sludge. Discharge Port 1 can also be used to transfer fuel to another tank while processing it through the primary filter.
Processing fuel through the Primary Filter, Fuel Conditioner, Separator, final filter and back to the tank (using both skids) through the final Discharge Port reconditions the fuel and cleans tanks at a high flow rate and completes the fuel dialysis and reconditioning process. Depending on the job, a choice of filter bags is available for the primary filter and a variety of fine filters, coalescing filters and water block elements for the secondary filter is available.
AXI® Fuel Conditioning and Filtration Systems eliminate the need for costly, periodic manual tank cleaning, while stabilizing and extending the shelf life of fuel. This is extremely important for all applications for long-term fuel storage, especially emergency power generators.
