Atlas Copco Specialist Rental (ASR) Egypt

Company: Atlas Copco
Industry: Power Generation

Problem


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.

Solution


ASR Egypt asked FuelActive for help with premature fuel filter blockages, often before 20 hours of use in the Egyptian environment. The main concerns were fuel pump failure, 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.

Results


The installation of FuelActive ended a run of fuel-related breakdowns for Atlas Copco.
Maintenance costs on the machines were reduced due to fewer breakdowns. As a result, the need to retain a breakdown engineer on standby was negated.
Due to the better quality fuel being delivered to the injectors, fewer filters were needing to be replaced.
