Mobile Fuel Filtration/Additive Unit 930015

Due to the serious need of the U.S. Army for a simple and rapid mobile fuel filtration system, a Filtration/Additive Unit (FAU) has been designed and fabricated. The primary use of the FAU is to aid in the cleanup of fuel in Army ground vehicles and equipment fuel cells and storage tanks. The FAU provides a simple and rapid means to remove gross quantities of particulate and water. The unit consists of a trailer-mounted filtration and additive system capable of dispensing three separate additives into the fuel. The FAU was designed to rapidly clean and additive-treat diesel or aviation-type fuels in volumes between 400 and 4500 liters. However, the FAU is capable of processing larger quantities, such as in storage tanks. The designed pump rate is 225 liters per minute (minimum) using diesel fuel at its maximum viscosity (4.1 cSt at 40°C).
