Automated Fuel Conditioning
and Tank Cleaning Systems

In any application where diesel powered engines provide the horsepower to get the job done, the horsepower must be ready to run on call and for the duration of the critical times. The diesel-powered engines used in equipment may sit without operation for long periods of time until that horsepower is needed to perform. To ensure these engines and generator components operate at optimum efficiency, AXI® (formerly Algae-X) has developed Automated Fuel Conditioning and Tank Cleaning Systems that address a wide range of fuel storage installations.

The following list provides basic characteristics of the AXI Fuel Treatment and Tank Cleaning Systems to allow for your initial identification of a system that may meet your needs. Power supply and flow capability (relates to fuel tank size) is the most critical for your consideration, but where you are going to use the system is also important (inside an enclosed area, such as an engine room on a marine vessel, inside a generator enclosure, outdoors subject all sorts of weather, etc.). Some Systems are contained in weather-proof enclosures, while others have no protection and must be in-doors. Certain systems are configured for multiple-tank installations.

Do not be overly concerned about the flow capacity of the system as compared to the size of tank or tanks that you are managing. A lower flow rate simply means the system must operate for a longer cycle to perform the periodic tank maintenance. Of course, a system that is so small that it must operate constantly will, itself, require more maintenance. A rule of thumb is a tank should be circulated three times under a preventative maintenance program, and the treatment should be completed in less than 50 operating hours (not necessarily continuous).

How often your Fuel Treatment and Tank Maintenance System operates will depend on a number of factors. Fuel that is stored for an emergency may need to be circulated three times once each year in certain climates and conditions. Areas with more humidity and temperature variances would require more frequent treatments. Where fuel is used more often and new fuel is taken on regularly, treatments may need to be performed whenever new fuel is taken on, circulating the entire tank. If a quarantine tank is used (one where all new fuel taken on is placed), only the new fuel would require treatment and, upon completion, transferred into the more permanent storage tank.

System Integration

All systems listed are equipped with an automatic controller system. Systems are designed to run automatically at predetermined times to treat the fuel and filter water, sludge and tank sediment from fuel storage tanks. The automation may be as basic as a manually set timer, while others have extensive control and notification functions to advise the operator at a remote location with the status of the systems operations. Configurations include 12 or 24V systems and 110V/220V/480V systems, with leak detection and other features.
