Fuel storage tanks that have offered you many years of service have given you a great return on your investment. Fuel storage tanks just like everything else it can get dirty. What a lot of people don’t realize is that it’s what you don’t see that’s what is going to cause you problems. Temperature variations, leaking fittings and dirty fuel deliveries can put more than just fuel in your tank- it adds water. Not to mention fuel is often passed between more than one container and more than one supplier increasing its chances of fuel contamination. Water reacts with the fuel and creates sludge in diesel tanks and is soluble in ethanol blends. Clogged filters, pilot light flame outs and service interruptions are sure to follow. Capitol Petroleum Equipment, Inc. offers above ground storage and underground storage tank cleaning along with our exceptional fuel tank filtering services for commercial or residential customers.

Fuel filtering

If your tank is clean but you don’t cycle or exercise your system regularly your fuel can get stale. Keep it fresh! Prevent unnecessary stoppages and filter replacements. Cycling fuel from your tanks through the fuel filtering and conditioning systems keeps your fuel and your filters clean. Keeping impurities out of vital components is a must. Water control is a constant battle, you might have water and not even know it! Water is not only corrosive but it’s a breeding ground for microorganisms that will attack your systems components, clog filers and injectors even eat away at the metal in your tank. Fuel filtering systems are one of the best investments you can make to keep you up when the power goes down. Capitol Petroleum Equipment, Inc. offers you two solutions-

  • If installing fuel filtering equipment is not in your budget, we offer on call fuel filtering. We will provide experienced technicians and proven technologies to cycle your fuel through filters measured in size by the micron (that’s a millionth of a meter!). Our proven technology will return your fuel to a pristine condition and ready for use.
  • If you’re looking for a more permanent solution, we can offer you a variety of in-line and standalone fuel filter systems. In line systems filter and strain your fuel as it travels through your system. These are usually installed prior to a generator tank or boiler intake. These are a great solution for your existing system, pic a suitable location and plumb into the inlet and outlet!
  • Standalone preprogrammed systems are another way to go. These systems go from almost as simple as the inline or as complex as system into itself. These systems can handle multiple tanks. Programmed start and stop run times and integrated controls to manage the movement of fuel to and from any tank in your system. Many times these units are installed at the same time as your tank system itself. Often with dedicated supply and return lines, automated valve systems and integration with other system components. Don’t let fuel maintenance be an issue for you, we provide technical and mechanical experience as well as systems from the leading manufacturers in the industry.
