Fuel Contamination

Fire Pump Services | KNDL Drinks Logistics

Poor starting, Uneven Running and Excessive Exhaust Emissions.
Both Diesel driven Fire Pumps at KNDL drinks logistics Manchester had been manifesting these conditions for nearly two years, various service companies had carried out remedial repairs which had treated temporarily some of the symptoms. The cause was always fuel related, filters were replaced, fuel injection equipment overhauled only for the faults to re surface within months.

Objectives

When we were called to attend, the root cause was immediately evident. Fuel samples were taken along with swabs from the internal surfaces of the fuel tank.
Bacterial slime and associated by products were found. The tanks were cleaned, all fuel lines purged and a pair of FM20's were fitted to handle any further contamination.
All symptoms immediately disappeared.

What we did

Both engines are performing to specification with a reported reduction in fuel consumption. (This is possibly due to a cleaner more efficient fuel)
