Reduce Pump and Air Compressor Maintenance

Air Compressors and pumps used for fluid transfer applications such as de-watering and solids handling require maximum engine uptime to ensure no disruption to operations. Unfortunately, a combination of poor-quality fuel, site practices, operating conditions and lack of maintenance results in unplanned engine downtime.

A growing number of pump OEMs and Operators have chosen FuelActive to reduce pump and air compressor maintenance as well as eradicate fuel-related breakdowns. The patented FuelActive system protects the fuel system and engine components from premature wear in doing so provides a fuel economy and CO2 emissions benefit.

Simple to fit and installed for life, the patented FuelActive fuel pick-up unit replaces the existing pick-up system and gets to work immediately. By delivering 92% cleaner fuel to the engine, the FuelActive system is proven to reduce fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions by up to 5% – as well as reducing your maintenance costs.

Customers such as Xylem, Atlas Copco and DXB Pumps have installed FuelActive to ensure they maximise uptime and reduce fuel-related breakdowns.

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.

Easy to fit

Installation is relatively non-intrusive and can take place on-site. In most instances, fitting FuelActve can be completed within 60 minutes without the need for specialist tools – a small expense to reduce pump and air compressor maintenance.

Our standard FuelActive units are designed to work in most fuel tanks. Where this isn’t the case, our engineers can work with you to create a bespoke unit.

Patented Design

Unique in the market and patent protected, FuelActive’s float design with a 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).

The design is proven across multiple industries with customers experiencing reduced downtime, reduced fuel consumption and reduced emissions in mining, construction, transportation and many more.

Reduced Fuel Consumption and CO₂ emissions with FuelActive

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.

This means water that is harmful to the fuel system is left in the tank whilst the cleaner fuel is served to the engine.

Overall, FuelActive ensures 92% cleaner fuel is delivered through the fuel system which negates contamination-related breakdowns.

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.

FuelActive assembly, solving the issue of fuel contamination

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.

If you have any questions or concerns over our product we would gladly talk you through our product in detail and how we can reduce pump and air compressor maintenance.

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.
