Description
    No matter how carefully gasoline and diesel are refined and handled, contaminants will find their way into fuel during transfer and storage. Water is an engine's primary enemy and can condense directly from air during normal day/night heating and cooling cycles. The presence of water facilitates microbial growth, which leads to fouling, increased corrosion, and damage to fuel system components. Additionally, rust particles and chips from corroding tanks and piping, as well as air-blown silica and dirt, can lead to clogged filters, reduced combustion efficiency, and even engine failure.
    Racor Filter Carts are portable field service maintenance tools that help to ensure the performance and reliability of modern diesel and combustion engines by removing water and contaminants that often make their way into fuel during handling, transfer, and storage. The carts serve as an invaluable preventative maintenance tool and are ideal for use with generator sets that have integrated base tanks or day tanks, where fuel has been stored long-term and may have degraded from water and particulate contamination.
    Racor offers two models of portable fuel filtration carts:
    FC-10-01 CLEANDiesel Filter Caddy – The FC-10-01 is used to clean fuel that has been stored in small fuel tanks for extended periods of time. Typical applications are generator base tanks, generator day tanks, and small bulk storage tanks up to 2,000 gallons. Racor Filter Caddys are fully portable and self-contained. They include the FBO-14 fuel filter, which does not require any tools for filter change-outs and offers replacement filter options for various applications. The carts can easily be moved at the jobsite by one person. They include a 10 gpm (37.9 lpm) pump and filter system built into a wheeled enclosure. The system utilizes a 40-mesh strainer and 5-micron water coalescing filter, along with a control panel featuring water detection, filter gauge, and alarm.

    FC-20-1-120V and FC-20-1-120V-KIT Heavy-Duty Fuel Polishing Cart – FC-20-1 Fuel Polishing carts can process fuel at up to 20 gpm (76 lpm). The carts come equipped with 1-inch cam-lock fittings, which allow for for easy connection. They also feature an open-frame aluminum design, which affords them a unique combination of mobility, durability, and corrosion resistance. Like the FC-10-01, the FC-20-1-120V cart includes an FBO-14 fuel filter, which does not require any tools for filter change-outs and offers replacement filter options for a wide range of applications. The unit serves as a highly cost-effective way to filter diesel, mixtures of biodiesel, and other petroleum hydrocarbon fluids in storage or transport.

    Markets:

    Applications:
    • Diesel and Biodiesel
    • Kerosene
    • Gasoline
    • Heating Oil

    Benefits:
    • Removes free water that often collects in fuel tanks and drums. Free water formation occurs when humid air inside a container or tank cools to the point that water condenses out of the air.
    • Removes hard particles (e.g., sand and silica) present in air that are introduced during transfer and distribution.
    • Saves time and money by eliminating unplanned maintenance and unscheduled downtime from system component failure.
    • Mobile design allows for easy use in the field
