FuelVu - Fuel Polishing/Filtering for Emergency Backup Power Systems
FuelVu polishing technology integrates fuel analysis detecting particulate contamination and water presence in real time. Live monitoring confirms actual fuel polishing efficacy from data reported in ISO 4006 code format. This vital information provides operations key insight to diesel fuel condition, avoiding potential standby power failure.
Test size and number of particulates present per milliliter of sampled fuel. Live data and alarms displayed locally on HMI and remotely via facility BMS dashboard.
All delivered bulk fuel for facility users fails to meet ISO 4006 cleanliness codes standards as mandated by generator manufacturers and warranty claims.
Adjust number of preset automated polishing cycles proactively averting quick fuel deterioration.
Extend fuel inventory life for USTs, ASTs, and sub-base belly tanks.
Modular system architecture has a small footprint and is flexible, configurable, and upgradable
FuelVu is cost comparative to current conventional units making the customer decision smart and easy!
Todays low sulfur diesel quickly deteriorates promoting water, corrosion and algae growth shortening equipment life.Uptime failure is not an option, revenue, data, productivity, even human life depend on fuel system reliability.
FuelVus new generation of advanced technology was designed for the most critical applications, such as data centers, hospitals, telecom and other applications where redundant component dependability is essential.
FuelVu advanced fuel polishing system:
Multi-particulate, stage progressive filtration and water removal
Integrated, high-performance pump
Monitoring devices and alarms
Digital, user-programmable controller
FuelVu uses a progressive filtration and conditioning regime:
Coarse straining through 40 mesh washable screens
Final filtration through 5 micron disposable media filter
Water coalescing to 15 PPM
liWater separation and collection
Fuel circulation and transfer is accomplished via an on-board, high- performance, cast-aluminum, positive- displacement gear pump direct-driven via an industrial, heavy-duty motor. The pump combines high vacuum prime maintenance with linear flow versus pressure performance. An integral pressure relief valve is included. Drive motors are NEMA class industrial type, conservatively applied and include ball-bearings, class H insulation and continuous duty ratings.
The FuelVu system includes shutoff ball valves, check valves, pressure and differential pressure gauges, including differential pressure sensors across the filtration element.
Intelligent automation and operator interface are the hallmarks of FuelVu. Each FuelVu is packaged with a digital controller. This UL508A listed and labeled industrial control panel features PLC-based digital control and touch-panel operator interface.
The controller provides full automatic operation of the system and is operator field programmable to set filtration cycle duration, time of day, day of week operation. Manual override capability is included. The controller monitors differential pressure across the filtration element and water level in the separator collection vessel.
Operational alarms are likewise generated. The controller is MODBUS or Ethernet network compatible for integration with remote Building Automation Systems or generator control switchgear.
