ASR flagship models PTS 916/1600 oil-free, diesel-driven air compressors, powered by the Cummins QSX15 503kW engine, are used outside in dirty environments. They frequently experienced contaminated diesel fuel, leading to expensive equipment failures, increased maintenance call-out visits and equipment downtime.
ASR Brazil asked FuelActive for help with premature fuel filter blockages and fuel pump failure, often before 100 hours of use in the Brazilian environment. The main concerns were premature injection wear and catastrophic engine failure. FuelActive installed five FuelActive fuel pick-up units on a trial basis. Follow-up analysis showed no equipment breakdowns. In addition, fuel filter life was extended fourfold, retaining optimal levels well beyond the normal maintenance interval.
