Floating fuel pickup delivers clean fuel from the top of the tank to the engine, leaving contaminants at the bottom of the tank.
Top business benefits
Minimises fuel consumption
By mitigating fuel contamination, this solution improves the engine’s thermal efficiency and, in turn, its fuel consumption
Limits harmful emissions
This solution maintains factory-level emissions standards by helping engines burn cleaner fuel
Increases machine uptime
It also improves machine operation by reducing contamination and premature wear in the fuel and engine system
Reduces unplanned maintenance
By extending the life cycle of the engine, any unforeseen maintenance issues or unplanned downtimes are mitigated
Fewer component replacements
This solution also improves the life span of all components, from fuel injectors and fuel pumps to fuel filters
By doing all this, the reliability of your diesel engines improves, and the Total Cost of Ownership decreases
A simple and robust design comprised only of functional parts
Uses a fuel pick-up float device to ensure that only the cleanest fuel from the tank is being used
Operates at the top of the tank where the fuel is cleanest, and pulls from the sides rather than the bottom
Continues to supply clean fuel to the engine even when there is as little as 10% fuel remaining
An in-tank, fit-and-forget solution that requires no maintenance and is proven to have a long operational life
In more detail
Fuel contamination in diesel engines is responsible for 80% of machine breakdowns and unplanned maintenance. For mining operations, this can seriously compromise productivity, increase operating costs, and result in huge financial losses.
Diesel fuel contamination also threatens fuel economy and thermal efficiency, leading to an increase in harmful emissions. The solution? An in-tank, fit-and-forget product that prevents harmful contaminants from entering the fuel pickup pipe.
