Stored Fuel Chemical Treatment

stored-fuel-chemical-treatment.jpgStored fuels can’t resist breakdown without a little help.

Chemical fuel treatments are an essential part of a good fuel preventive maintenance process. They do the things that mechanical fuel polishing can’t do on its own.

Biocide to knock out microbes. Fuel stabilizers for longer fuel life in storage. Sludge dispersants and detergents to keep tanks clean. Essential tools to protect fuel and make sure your stored fuel is ready for action whenever you need it.

Not all fuel “additives” are what they seem to be. Or any good at all.

Bell Fuel & Tank Services customers have confidence knowing their fuel is protected by the best chemicals in the industry. And they have confidence that they’re getting exactly what they need. All backed by over 106 years of experience with Bell Performance - the father of the fuel additive industry.

When you take the best chemical fuel treatments in the industry and combine them with the other elements of the Bell Fuel & Tank Services program, you get piece of mind that money can’t buy.

Fuel Tank Corrosion - A Growing Natiowide Problem (Feb 8th Free Webinar)

Before 2007, corrosion in storage tanks was a relatively rare phenomenon. Not like today, where a 2016 nationwide study by the EPA indicates that 80% or more of storage tanks already have corrosion damage, while only a fraction of their owners even know they may have a problem. Read more

The Value of Diesel Fuel Testing

The value of diesel fuel testing lies in the fact it tells you things about your fuel that you can’t otherwise know. That’s also why it is so important. Read more

Maintaining Diesel Fuel Storage Tanks - New EPA Recommendations

In its report released earlier in 2016, the EPA reminded us that there are over 100,000 diesel fuel storage tanks across the country. That’s a lot of tanks and a lot of stored fuel. And those are just the “regulated ones”. You can add to that figure an equally substantial number of unregulated diesel fuel storage tanks, as well as fuel storage tanks for home heating oil that fall outside the...Read more

The fuel contaminants you need to watch out for

Crude oil comes out of the ground as a mixture of components formed from prehistoric plants and animals over eons of time. 142 refineries turn it into the fuels that we use to get the job done.  The world around us provides the bad actors that attack fuel when it’s stored and turn it into a problematic mess.

The benefits of partnering with a fuel expert

One universal truism is that people like to do business with experts.  They like to do business with people they like, and they like to do business with experts.  If you’re lucky, sometime you get both at the same time. Read more

Choosing a fuel partner who is properly certified

Anybody can build a filtering machine (or something that looks like it) and then attempt to go into the fuel filtration business. This fact means there are more choices vying to take care of your fuel problems than ever before. Read more

Filtering out the bad stuff in stored fuel

The best solution for fixing problematic stored fuel involves both chemical fuel treatment and “mechanical processes”.  Mechanical processing of fuel invariably involves some kind of filtration to remove insoluble contaminants like sludge, asphaltenes and biomass that may appear in the fuel when it has become unstable. Read more

Annual fuel testing is essential (but you don't have to do it all)

There are thousands of old storage tanks dotting the landscape across the nation with untold gallons of old fuel inside them. How many of them have been checked recently? Probably  not that many. If you were to open one up and draw a fuel sample, you could well find the fuel inside looks dark and nasty. Fuel like that is obviously bad. Read more

What Does Fuel Testing Really Tell you

One thing that sets apart a good tank servicing or fuel polishing partner from a no-so-good one is their familiarity with fuel testing.  The better partners in this area should incorporate ASTM testing into their service protocols, because their goal is to make sure their customers (you) know everything they need to know to make the best decision possible. ASTM testing of stored fuel is the...Read more

Stored fuel more than 6 months old? Here's what you need to do

Back in the day, the storage life of both diesel and gas was measured in years, not months. That’s not the case any more.   Once you get past 6 months for diesel fuel in storage, concerns start to grow. And you’re one of the few if you can get 6 months out of stored gasoline if it has any ethanol content in it whatsoever. Read more
