Reduce Downtime in Mining

Operating across mines globally, FuelActive have developed a revolutionary solution, transforming fuel delivery by extracting only clean fuel from the cleanest upper fuel level. This process enhances engine efficiency, reduces contamination, and cuts both emissions and fuel costs by up to 5%. The resulting savings, amounting to thousands of dollars, allow the system to often pay for itself within just three months.

The innovative FuelActive unit sets itself apart from conventional fuel pick-up pipes. Utilising a floating pick-up pipe, it selectively draws clean fuel from the top, thereby avoiding the harmful contaminants that reside at the tank bottom.


FuelActive has been rigorously tested with leading engine and machinery OEMs, as well as with operators across Africa, South America, Asia, and Australia.

“FuelActive protected the fuel system, reducing total cost of ownership by avoiding filter and component replacements.” – Guillermo González Loncón, Technical Support, New Products, Cummins

The patented fuel pick-up system is proven to deliver 92% cleaner fuel to the engine, improve fuel efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions and increase uptime.

Easy to install, this zero-maintenance, fit-and-forget system is the simple solution to reducing your carbon footprint and maintaining uptime while protecting your most valuable assets.

Reduce Fuel Filter Changes and Other Engine Wear Parts

By burning cleaner fuel and avoiding contaminated fuel significantly reduces vehicle breakdowns reducing the need for expensive call-outs for engine wear parts replacements such as fuel filter changes.

Not only that, because the engine burns only clean fuel, the thermal efficiency of the engine reduces fuel consumption whilst maintaining factory-level emissions standards through its life cycle.

Reduce harmful emissions

Burning cleaner fuel enables diesel engines to emit lower levels of carbon dioxide.

Reduce Component Replacements

Burning cleaner fuel increases the life expectancy of fuel injectors, fuel pumps and fuel filters when working in tough mining conditions.

End Fuel-related Breakdowns

Burning cleaner fuel preserves the engine’s fuel-injectors and prolongs the life expectancy of the diesel engines of your mining machinery. Vital when operating large distances away from technical engineers.

Reduce Maintenance

Burning cleaner fuel avoids blocked fuel filters and damaged fuel pumps, which keeps costs down and your mining machinery running.

Reduce Fuel Consumption

Burning cleaner fuel improves fuel efficiency, which means you get more and better performance from every gallon. Integral for keeping ongoing operational costs down.

Reduce Cost of Ownership

Burning cleaner fuel reduces the cost of diesel engine maintenance while ending on-site fuel-related breakdowns and improving the overall performance of your mining equipment.

Product Features

Reduce Downtime in Mining

Easy to fit

Installation is relatively non-intrusive and can normally take place while the tank remains on the machine. All that is required is a simple replacement of the current fuel pick-up pipe. Fitting can be completed within 60 minutes in most instances.

FuelActive Mining System - Reduce Machine Downtime in Mining


FuelActive® is proven to work from Himalayas, Andes to sub Saharan Africa in extreme temperatures and regions and in all mining applications.

FuelActive® units can deliver over 4000 litres of diesel per hour and also operate efficiently within the highly agitated fuel of a mining bed.

Fuelactive unit

Manufacturing excellence

FuelActive® is ISO 9001 accredited. Units are made up of steel and plastic components which are resistant to Hydrocarbon Fuels (Diesel, Gasoline, Kerosene etc).

The product has been thoroughly tested in the field and independently tested by a TS16949 registered filter company.

FuelActive range designed to Reduce Engine Contamination and engine emissions


Not confined to diesel. The physics that underpins FuelActive® functions remains true for other fuels such as petrol, kerosene, adBlue etc.

FuelActive units are often made bespoke. Bottom feed units, units capable of delivering >4,000 litres of fuel per hour and units that are fitted to unconventionally-shaped fuel tanks make up a versatile range of products.
