Water in fuel
Low sulfur content in today's fuel (sulfur is a natural biocide and lubricity enhancer)
Damaged O-rings on fill caps
Dirty fuel tank
Getting bad fuel from a fuel station
Not keeping fuel tanks full allows for condensation to get into the tank
Unstable fuel allows asphaltines and paraffins to drop out of solution
Once the fuel breaks down the individual components feed on yeast, fungus, and bacteria in your fuel and deposits the byproduct in your fuel tank (everything you see that is caught in your fuel filters)
Contact Chase for a fuel sampling or set up a fuel polishing service today and you will experience decreased maintenance, increased fuel efficiency, a cleaner fuel burn, less time spent fighting fuel problems, and reassurance that your equipment will operate correctly in case of an emergency.
First, we add our top shelf fuel additive to the fuel. Second, we insert a suction and discharge hose into the proper ports on your tank. Then, the fuel gets sucked from the machine at either a rate of 35 gallons per minute (gpm) or 120 gpm depending on what machine is used. The fuel then passes through an ionizer where the fuel is ionized and any mtallic debris is caught. It then enters and passes through a set of 5 fuel filters where the fuel is filtered down to 1 micron, goes through the fuel pump, and back into your tank as clean, treated fuel. The fuel is filtered until no more microbial growth or water is present in the fuel. The fuel will be stable for a period of up to 2 years.
Draining, cleaning, re-building, and re-priming of the fuel/water separators is part of the services we provide you with when polishing and cleaning your yacht tanks.
We are able to polish fuel and clean fuel tanks on most service vehicles and equipment.
Currently we only serve the Gulf Coast area but we are growing fast and expect to have the ability to go nationwide soon.
