FuelActive in Pumps

Approximately 80 per cent of pump downtime or premature maintenance is caused by poor fuel quality and fuel contamination.

This global problem is affecting companies operating pumps. Often remaining undetected, poor fuel quality, leading to fuel contamination drives up operating costs by increasing repair and maintenance, reducing uptime and eroding capital efficiency.

The patented FuelActive fuel pickup unit is a unique, innovative solution to the problem of fuel contamination in diesel engines. Unlike a standard fuel pickup pipe, the revolutionary FuelActive unit uses a floating pickup pipe that draws clean fuel from the top of the fuel level, thus avoiding the harmful contaminants that settle at the bottom of the tank.

There is only one in-tank, fit-and-forget product – FuelActive.

Find out how FuelActive has been helping our customers here.

Reduce Fuel Consumption

FuelActive is proven to reduce fuel consumption by 5%. Burning cleaner fuel increases the thermal efficiency of your engine, thus reducing fuel consumption.

Reduce harmful emissions

FuelActive is proven to reduce CO2 emissions by 5%. Burning cleaner fuel maintains factory-level emissions standards throughout the lifecycle of your engine.

End Fuel-related Breakdowns

Burning cleaner fuel preserves the engine’s fuel-injectors and prolongs the life expectancy of the diesel engines of your pump.

Reduce Component Replacements

Burning cleaner fuel increases the life expectancy of fuel injectors, fuel pumps and fuel filters when carrying large loads, in tough conditions.

Reduce Maintenance

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

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 driving performance of your pump.

Patented Design

FuelActive’s float design with built-in diffuser reduces localised pressure minimising the disturbance of contamination within the tank. The conventional fuel pick-up design creates a high-velocity disturbance in and around where contaminants settle (see red area).

Independently tested

Independent laboratory testing by Sogefi Filtration Ltd showed that the water/diesel separation efficiency of the FuelActive system exceeded 94 percent, compared with 2.3 percent for the conventional system.
baffle

Zero Maintenance

The FuelActive fuel pick-up pipe is a true fit-and-forget solution. The stainless steel baffle has an ultra-smooth interior to eliminate any friction. The hose is hydrocarbon resistant, protecting against modern-day fuel corrosion. Even the plastics are identical to today's plastic fuel tanks.
Assembly

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.
fastener

Robust

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