Phase Separation Solutions
Today's gasoline contains various degrees of Ethanol which is derived from organic material such as corn. While this fuel mixture helps lower emissions, it also can create trouble for tank owner in the form of a water / fuel mixture layer that develops towards the tank bottom. This is caused as the Ethanol attracts and hold water in suspension. As this layer forms and drops, it is often call "phase separation" layer which leads to:
While many of our find competitors bring in a huge truck, trailer and filtration system loaded with bell and whistles, Steel Camel does not. We feature our patented
"Bond Breaker" cartridge filters which remove water from Ethanol blended fuels.
We couple this technology with simple technology:
Whether you are a fleet manager, a C Store Owner or a Marina, we offer a variety of solutions and configurations to help to control "phase separation in Ethanol blended fuels. Our units run from:
Phase Separation can sneak up on the best of maintenance personnel and fleet managers, even if good housekeeping is practiced. While "sticking" the tank and checking your Automatic Tank Gauges are good practices, these techniques only tell you about accumulated water on the bottom of the tank.
Steel Camel feature water sensing dispenser filters that detect phase separation early in the process. The design of the filter will cause the center portions to swell and slow flow the filter, and eventually choke off before the phase separated layer is passed to the vehicle. Not all water detecting and choking are filters are created equally.
To further prevent phase separation, quarterly , bi-annual or scheduled use of our filter carts will ensure emulsified water is removed to prevent the need for tank cleaning.
