How it Works
The device possesses a floating arm that is designed to rise and fall with the level of fluid. It is positioned so that the cleanest fuel in the tank is always delivered to the equipment it feeds. No more downtime due to clogged filters and nozzles! Watch our YouTube video below for more details.
Why Float the Pick-Up Line?
Standard fuel pick-up lines are plumbed 3” to 5” from the floor of the tank to maximize storage capacity. When contaminants and water fall to the tank bottom, they are delivered to expensive equipment causing damage and failure (see What Happens in a Tank). The problem is compounded when the settled particles are agitated.
The solution to this ongoing problem is our unique, patented fuel delivery system, the FLOATube. Instead of delivering fuel from the bottom of the tank, the FLOATube delivers fuel from a higher point, well above the area where contamination develops.
State, local and federal agencies mandate regulatory compliance. Organizations such as the National Fire Protection Association recommend that steps be taken to clean or replace aged fuel. Petroleum Recovery Services’ Fuel Quality Assurance Program is the answer to that requirement, and now Fuel Delivery Systems has developed and patented the FLOATube for added assurance against equipment failure.
Peace of Mind
The FLOATube increases the reliability of your equipment and decreases the frequency of tank cleaning and engine maintenance needs. It is the best piece of equipment for peace of mind. Please call us for more information and an estimate to outfit your tanks.
