Once a problem is identified through the right testing (and interpretation), only part of the job is done. The Fuel-Pulse program was created to help stored fuel users reach the right answers on what condition their stored fuel is in, and what that means they should do next.
To quote an oft-overused axiom, to a man with a hammer, everything is a nail. When it comes to stored fuel, that doesn’t mean we go looking for problems to solve. Fuel-Pulse pairs looking for problems with the right approach in response to them. Which may mean doing nothing at all if there’s no problem in the first place.
That’s part of the value of Fuel-Pulse for its customers. Ignoring or missing a problem until it becomes a serious issue can be expensive. But so is taking action when you don’t have to. Throwing money away on a solution that wasn’t needed. Or even the wrong solution that doesn’t really solve the problem at hand.
Condition monitoring and testing Bell FTS’s Fuel-Pulse program places the focus squarely on keeping stored fuel in its best condition by accurately assessing what that condition is. Bell Fuel & Tank Service expertise then guides the customer to the decision that’s right for them. No wasted time, no wasted money, properly cared-for stored fuel.
What if there really is a problem that needs solving? Fuel-Pulse and Bell Fuel & Tank Services have that covered, too, providing expert guidance on the best practice course of action for the customer’s stored fuel situation.
This action might include mechanical cleaning or fuel filtration, water and sludge removal, and biocide treatment to kill problem microbes. Chemical treatments involving fuel stabilizers and corrosion inhibitors may be recommended to protect the fuel’s specifications for the future.
There are few things worse than going through the time and expense of fixing a problem, only to find out you wasted previous time and money without fully addressing the issue.
Fuel-Pulse customers get a complete solution for their stored fuel because they know their problem has been corrected. How? Making the right decision on what’s wrong with the fuel (if anything) and what to do about it are only part of the picture. The Fuel-Pulse program utilizes the right testing and diagnostics not only before problem-solving, but after, to confirm that the fuel’s properties have been corrected and the problem has been solved.
