The Portable Tank Cleaning Unit is a portable contaminant removal system for use in both above- and below-ground storage tanks. It is designed specifically to remove water and other contaminants common to stored diesel fuel.
The standard system operates on 110 AC power and is lightweight enough for one-person handling and operation. (220 VAC and DC-powered systems are available.)
It is designed to fit through doorways and up stairways. It can be used in almost any location from rooftop to shipboard.
The PTCU utilizes RCI's patented fuel purification technology, which contains no filters or moving parts. It is used as primary fuel purification and removes a minimum of 99% of water, including emulsified water, and up to 98% of the normal solid or particulate contaminants found in fuel, including sludge and algae to approximately 10 microns. The filters found on diesel engines provide the secondary and final fuel filtration from 2 to 5 microns.
The PTCU is factory pre-assembled and consists of an RCI FP 1000 Fuel Purifier, a self-priming fuel pump; a UL-approved motor; a portable hand-cart; and suction and return hoses.
