During refining, distribution, and storage, fuels are subject to contamination from dirt, rust, water intrusion and condensation, microbial growth, and oxidation. If allowed to enter the fuel tank during transfer, these contaminants can lead to prematurely plugged filters, damaged components, decreased combustion efficiency, and even system failure.
The Racor P510MAM Series Pump and Filter Fuel Polishing System helps protect on-board engine filters by removing water and contaminants from contaminated fuel before it is transferred to a fuel tank or fuel system. Fuel polishing extends onboard filtration life and enhances filtration efficiency. Fuel polishing is especially important in standby power applications, as old degraded fuel can clog filters within minutes, leading to engine shutdown.
The P510MAM Series utilizes Racor’s proprietary Aquabloc® engineered media. Aquabloc® incorporates pleat-spacing corrugations and a graduated pore structure to increase dirt-holding capacity and extend filter life. The media is waterproof and rustproof, capturing contaminants while the specially treated surface separates and coalesces water from the fuel. The polisher also comes equipped with a brushless 12/24V DC motor, electrical harness and control module, metal bowl, and a stainless water-in-fuel sensor.
The P510MAM Series can be used for continuous operation on fuel tanks, or as part of a fuel transfer system.
