Cummins Filtration has developed a Fuel ReGen System to improve fuel cleanliness in onsite fuel storage tanks before it is pumped into vehicles or other onsite equipment.
World Wide Fuel Charter (WWFC) determined that 50 percent of the fuel dispensed at retail fuel pumps around the globe does not meet the necessary cleanliness of ISO standards recommended by ISO 18/16/13 (ISO 4406 Contamination Code).
Designed for use with fuel storage tanks 10,000 gallons and larger, The Fuel ReGen System cleanses onsite stored fuel kept in bulk storage tanks, and is designed to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week in a continuous recirculation configuration.
The unit is available in two models: the 3.5 horsepower/50 gallon per minute FK22000 and the 10 horsepower/100 gallon per minute FK22001.
Traditionally, when used without any pre-filtering of bulk fuel, the legacy engine mount filters are incapable of providing the required protection to the engine fuel injection system. If fuel contamination levels in the storage are beyond what the engine mount filters can handle, then the filters may clog, shortening the equipment operating time or in worst cases fail to filter the contaminants and destroy the expensive fuel injectors, which is a frequent occurrence on newer HPCR engines. Both of these instances cause extensive downtime and repair.
Cummins Filtration’s Fuel ReGen System uses standard electrical connections and requires a standard 2-inch hose connected to the bulk storage fuel tank.
