Condensation builds up daily in a diesel fuel system when not in use, possibly leading to fuel contamination through bacteria growth. Parker Energy Systems’ new, patent-pending FPM-050 Fuel Polishing Module is designed to remove emulsified water from the system and combat the accumulation of water in diesel fuel, preventing corrosion and maximizing the effectiveness of filters.
Enabling fuel maintenance during engine downtime and off-season storage, the FPM-050 is a fuel recirculation system that utilizes solid-state pump technology and the Racor filter already installed, so users don’t need to buy another filter. Consuming only 150 mA at 12 VDC, less than two watts of power, it won’t drain the battery, enabling continuous fuel maintenance. It can even work with a solar panel.
Promoting a bacteria-free environment and preventing contaminant build-up, the FPM-050 reduces the need for expensive fuel treatments and additives. Parker Energy Systems’ Fuel Polishing Module filtrates up to 50 gallons of fuel a day. It’s compatible with diesel, bio-diesel and kerosene.
Simple to operate, it incorporates an automatic, full-slow bypass valve, eliminating the need for manual switching. This versatile fuel maintenance solution can be installed in multiple configurations. The FPM-050 is designed for easy retrofitting into existing diesel fuel systems, whether in line with the main fuel filter/water separator or as a dedicated fuel maintenance loop.
The FPM-050 Fuel Polishing Module from Parker Energy Systems has a special introductory price of $587. The company also offers the FPM-052-A Installation Kit which includes the FPM-050, a Racor filter and a FPM-PTC-12-A Timer to easily install the module and schedule fuel maintenance.
