All sampling, testing and fuel polishing work is perfomed alongside an in-tank computer monitoring system to log and track absorbed moisture, free/emuslified water and particulate levels in the fuel and on the tank surface.
ASTM D4176 and ISO 4406 tests are completed on all samples before, during and after polishing and fuel and tank cleaning services.
We employ six distinct polishing systems tailored specifically to fit your current tank setup and present contamination issue.
Computer tracking is used to monitor everything from filtration efficacy to moisture levels to differing particulate levels at specific tank depths while our tech's perform polishing or filtration services. Tank surface particulate levels can also be checked independently to determine present and probable future contamination issues.
We service all types of fuel tanks from Generator Sub Base (belly) tanks to 150,000L and larger volume AST's and UST's.
With thousands of hours of experience our TSSA and ASTM trained staff specialize in testing, cleaning and restoring dirty, contaminated and water affected diesel fuel and tanks.
Our innovative cleaning and polishing process polishes and treats your fuel beyond original manufacturers specification and cleans your tank interior so bacterial and fungal growth are removed and future proliferation of wall attached and fuel suspended bilogical contamination is halted.
Prime Fuel not only polishes your fuel cleaner than ASTM D975, CGSB 3.517 (and the more strict EN 590) but we also vacuum the sides and bottom of your tank, add fuel stabilizer and microbial growth blockers and lightly pressure wash your tank(s) before recirculating your fuel through a series of filters until it is "clear and bright" (ASTM D4176) and ready to run your piece of diesel equipment in any emergency start up or long load-run situation.
We'll test your fuel for water (both free, absorbed and emulsified), clarity (ASTM D-4176 test), grade both your fuel and interior tank surfaces on the ISO 4406:1999 chart (per Worldwide Fuel Charter and generator manufacturer spec.) and provide computer tracking and chemical analysis to show you the progress and current state of both your fuel and tank.
If scheduled fuel testing is required for your company's critical sites (CAN 282-09 and CAN 282-15 emergency power required sites) we also offer comprehensive ISO-4406 particulate testing at annual or semi-annual intervals to confirm your fuel's pre- and post-polishing state (when corrective work is required) and to confirm your site's due dilligence and paperwork compliance with both National Fire and Building Codes (CSA CAN 282-09 and 282-15).
Our three step polishing process is capable of getting your fuel up to 30x cleaner than your diesel generator operation and warrantee requires and subsequently allows for a longer operating lifespan for your genset or engine due to reduced wear on the combustion chamber (ie: valves and rings), high pressure pump and fuel rail and injector parts. We also eliminate problematic growth from tank walls and bottoms to ensure the next time you turn on your generator or fill your tank, bottom resting debris, corrosiove microbial growth and sludge will not be stirred into your fuel and filters.
Whether your tanks are above or below ground (AST's or UST's), primary or secondary day tanks, are situated in large scale fuel farms, back-up generator belly tanks or large diesel powered marine vessels our specialty is providing a completely "drip free" and clean site solution while we treat, test and polish your fuel. Our tank cleaning systems are minimally invasive, cause zero mess (through a pressurized "closed loop" design) and keeps the fuel in the tank where it belongs during service.
Our eye toward safety, firmly established (and redundant) cleaning and operational protocols, expert training and array of tesing equipment ensure the job is done right each and every time. Our track record of customer satisfaction and ability to keep your machine in a state of readiness even while work is being performed is what keeps Prime Fuel a leader in the field.
It is Prime Fuel's primary mandate to not only save our customers costly and unnecessary repairs but to do so at a fraction of the cost of fuel disposal or fuel rail component warrantee work. We realize the gravity of an emergency power generator failure or fleetwide fuel contamination issue and will not leave a site until the fuel and tank are repaired to our exacting standards. Our job is to provide not only a clean burning (and lower emission) fuel but also to provide fuel that is reducing the actual wear on your engine from fuel rail to injector to combustion chamber due to exceedingly low particle count in your fuel.
Prime Fuel's fuel testing maintenance and (only if necessary) polishing protocols offer you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your equipment, boat, generator or emergency power provider at your critical site will start on time, every time, no matter what the circumstances.
Our staff includes TSSA certified petroleum equipment mechanics (levels 1 through 4) and ASTM trained fuel quality professionals for all your fuel maintenance needs. Prime Fuel provides diesel fuel testing, fuel inventory management, fuel polishing and filtering services for all of Southern Ontario and select Northern Ontario regions with a service area including Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, Mississauga, Barrie, Kitchener, Hamilton, London, Windsor, Sarnia and most areas in between.
Prime Fuel Polishing & Tank Cleaning Inc. is a TSSA Licensed Petroleum Contractor.
