Kingspan can help you preserve the reliability of your critical power source for back-up generators by minimising the impact of fuel contamination via fuel polishing, therefore saving you money and helping the environment.

Our Fuel Management Specialists can help you develop a bespoke fuel cleaning plan tailored to the results of the fuel resilience survey performed on samples taken from your fuel tanks. This fuel survey determines how in-depth the Fuel Polishing process needs to be to ensure your clean diesel meets EN590 and ISO4406:1999 requirements (click here for more details).

What is Fuel Polishing?

Why is Fuel Polishing important?

Your stored fuel breaks down at a rate of 2.56 g per litre, per day due to fuel contamination. In fact, after 6 months you may find that your fuel had degraded so much, that it is no longer fit for purpose due to water absorption, fuel microbial growth, such as diesel bug, or the presence of grit and sludge. The presence of dirty diesel can block fuel lines, injectors and pumps, therefore damaging the generator and potentially leading to generator failure.

Fuel Polishing will also help you meet EN590 and ISO 4406:1999 standards for stored fuel. These cover the 'cleanliness' of your fuel and have been introduced to minimise the impact of the contaminants mentioned below. Find out more about EN590 and ISO 4406:1999 by clicking here.

Fuel Contaminants

Kingspan Mobile Fuel Polishing Service

Our fuel polishing system can treat any volume of fuel from 1,000 litres to 5,600 litres per hour, with our custom built, mobile unit. Your fuel is pumped through our cleaning unit and back into the tank in a continuous, safe and efficient process. 

We take samples before (at the time of your Site Assessment), during and after the cleaning process to show the effectiveness of our fuel polishing process. 


What does our Fuel Polishing System do?

The Kingspan Fuel Polishing system can process up to 90 litres per minute or 5,600 litres per hour of Gasoline, Diesel, Jet Fuel, Kerosine or Ethonal. During this process, your fuel is filtered down to 2 mircons, therefore enabling;

  • the removal of emulsified water

  • cleaning of your fuel source to 200 parts per million - less than what is specificied by EN590

  • infection neutralisation and removal 

  • free water and sludge removal 

  • fuel optimisation 

  • removal of solid particulates (e.g. soot, rust and colloid carbon)

  • removal of microbial growth
