Pre-Winter Tank Maintenance Program
Up to 50% of all winter diesel vehicle breakdowns can be attributed to water and bacteria (bugs) being pumped from the main diesel storage tank into the vehicle. This can cause plugged fuel filters, equipment downtime and lost revenue.
THE DIESEL GUARD PROGRAM
The ValvTect Diesel Guard three-step pre-winter tank maintenance program is designed to keep your fleet up and running this winter by safely removing the two biggest causes of winter shutdowns; water (ice crystals) and bacteria.
PUMP OUT EXCESS WATER
Over time, water builds up in diesel storage tanks creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Even when entrained in a vehicle's diesel fuel, water will begin to freeze when the fuel temperature reaches 32º F., forming ice crystals that can plug fuel filters. First, pump out and properly disposed of excess water in your diesel storage tanks.
CHEMICALLY REMOVE RESIDUAL WATER
After pumping, any remaining water is removed by treating the next two or three diesel fuel deliveries with Diesel Guard Tank Dri, a water dispersant and freeze point depressant. Diesel Guard Tank Dri is a non-alcohol water dispersant and deicer, formulated to safely remove a controlled amount of water from the diesel fuel's storage tank.
* Safely Removes Moisture
* Reduces the Freeze Point of Water
* Non-Alcohol and Non-Flammable
* One Gallon Treats 7,500 Gallons of Diesel Fuel
KILL BACTERIA AND BIO-CONTAMINATION
Once all water is removed, "shock" treat the tank with BioGuard Micro-Biocide to kill bacteria and other bio-contamination. BioGuard is the industry's most effective biocide. Spare fuel dispenser filters should be on site to filter out dead bacteria after BioGuard treatment.
