FUEL POLISHING IMPROVES FUEL QUALITY
The process of fuel polishing leaves diesel fuel cleaner, purer, drier, and brighter. Foster Fuels can restore fuel that is degraded by contamination or age to a nearly-new condition with this process.
Major refiners say that fuel begins to degrade significantly after only 6 months. Fortunately, fuel polishing can reverse that degradation and save you from costly downtime and expensive damage to your equipment.
A combination of specialized equipment, appropriate fuel additives, and appropriately-sized filters restore fuel to an almost new condition. In addition to a notably visible difference, the quality improves at chemical level as well. Most importantly, the process maintains the combustion quality of your fuel. We can also facilitate third-party lab testing to confirm that your fuel has been returned to new specifications.
Fuel polishing can remove water and particulate contamination from fuel as well as reverse the effects of aging on diesel fuel in long-term storage. For facilities with zero tolerance for downtime, Foster Fuels recommends that polishing be planned for every third year as preventative maintenance.
Additionally, fuel polishing benefits our environment. By restoring fuel, the process prevents unnecessary waste, because polishing operations typically create less than .001% waste.
Fuel polishing will begin by evaluating the condition of the fuel in your tank. Then, we provide our expert opinion on how to restore it to nearly-new condition. We employ experienced technicians with in-depth knowledge of fuel chemistry; therefore, you can trust us with your fuel investment. This specialized service prepares your backup fuel for an emergency situation, thus saving your resources and reducing costs.
