Company: Atlas Copco
Industry: Air Compressors
The C13 ACERT T3 Caterpillar 318kW diesel engine powering the Atlas Copco XRVS 476 air compressor experienced contaminated diesel fuel while operating in the North Sea oil fields. That caused premature fuel filter blockages and injector wear, fuel pump failure, even catastrophic engine failure.
ASR UK asked FuelActive to provide the solution to numerous expensive equipment failures, equipment downtime and regular maintenance engineer call-out visits to the remote location. FuelActive installed two FuelActive fuel pick-up units on a trial basis. Follow-up analysis showed neither of the units experienced any breakdowns or fuel-filter blockages. As an added benefit, fuel filter life was extended well beyond the normal maintenance interval.
