Hydrainer’s UK General Manager, Ken Walker alerted Mike James to a fuel contamination issue with a new client contract after the machine stopped running following less than 15 minutes of operating time.
This is what led to the “light bulb” moment and the FuelActive journey began, Mike designed a solution to supply the cleanest fuel available to the fuel injectors through a floating fuel pick-up unit. The prototype design was trialled at the local depot in Cardiff, with more extensive tests taking place at the Head Office in Sheffield.
With the trials proving successful, Hydrainer placed the very first order for FuelActive and remain firm customers today.
Following a Product Development and Upgrade at Hydrainer, the FuelActive pick-up unit technology was incorporated as an integral component into the fuel tank during manufacture and is now a factory-fit solution.
