Particulate Removal

There are many different types of solid contaminants. However, it is the easiest problem to remediate and minimize. Maintaining fuel may require tank cleaning. Some tanks are so dirty, the only alternative is a complete tank cleaning. While tank cleaning and fuel filtration are two different processes, maintaining clean fuel may require both.
Tank cleaning may be necessary if it is severely contaminated with heavy, stickybiomass that requires pressure for removal. Field studies show approximately 20% of tanks require pressure cleaning to adequately remove contaminants from the tank for CleanFuel storage. Dixon systems are capable of doing both filtration and cleaning. There is no need to purchase two separate systems. They are also made with flexibility in mind, capable of using different types of media for specific applications. Whatever the fuel application, Dixon can provide the answer.
