The CTS Fuel Recirculation Units supplied by West Fuel Systems are designed to be installed to prevent diesel fuel inside a storage tank from getting stagnant – particularly those with low usage such as generator backup tanks, that whilst not regularly used are of vital importance. By keeping the fuel free of contaminants and bugs, costly damage and downtime to equipment and vehicles are avoided.
The fuel storage tank circulation system draws the fuel up from the front of the tank through the magnetic conditioner, keeping any bacteria microbes dormant, and then through two-stage water and particle filtration process to remove any impurities before circulating back into the tank.
The CTS storage tank recirculation unit has an input for connecting to an alarm/gauge to detect a low fuel level and a leak probe for a drip tray (if installed). Benefiting from a control panel with large, coloured lights, any issues that need to be dealt with i.e. filter blocked, low fuel level, a leak or a system fault can be easily diagnosed. If the system identifies any of the above issues, the pump will turn off until necessary action has been taken as a safeguard. Complete with two BMS outputs, the control panel can also send a signal of this to warn users remotely.
There are two versions of the CTS Fuel Tank Circulation System; one for circulating (50lpm) a maximum of 3000 litres per day for tanks up to 40,000 litres, and another for circulating (70lpm) a maximum of 4000 litres per day for tanks up to 70,000 litres. Tank contents should be recirculated every 28 days to prevent bacteria colonies from forming. Our systems are set to turn over 1.5 times the tank contents every 28 days to include a safety margin.
Please note that other makes and models fuel storage Conditioner/Re-Circulation Kits are available on request.
