What are Fuel Farms?

 A fuel farm (also known as an oil depot) is an industrial facility or holding tank for the storage of oil and/or petrochemical products. Most air bases and airports have their own dedicated fuel farms with road tankers and other vehicles that transport the fuel from the fuel farm to the aircrafts. With millions invested in these aircrafts, the quality and cleanliness of the fuel is vital to maintaining the operational standards of an airbase or airport.

Filter Pure has multiple industrial filtration systems that enhance and clean the fuel. These systems would be installed at the point of entry of the fuel farms. A couple of different kinds of systems are the H88 or the M88. These systems are designed for the removal of particulates from oils, fuels and other industrial process fluids. The M88 is a liquid bag housing for lower pressure applications. It removes dirt, pipe scale, and other substances from the processed liquids. You can use either a liquid bag filter or a strainer basket. The H88 is a hydraulic cartridge housing and designed for the removal of particulates and water from oils and industrial fluids. Both of these systems are constructed to protect all downstream equipment. Another positive attribute of these systems  is the ability to be customized based on the specification/or requirements needed.  Some of the specifications are as follows and can be customized for your use:

  •  Flow rates that range from 120 to 4,600 gpm
  • Multi-round flow rates from 360 to 4,500 gpm
  • The pressure ratings 150 psi
  • Carbon steel, 304 and 316 stainless steel construction
  • Multi-round housings feature bearing assisted davit assembly
  • ASME code U or UM, depending upon model

The necessity of utilizing these filtration systems for fuel farms is important due to the great quality fuel it produces. For more information on how we can help you with these systems or others like them please contact Amy Easter at amy@filterpure.com or call 800-942-7873.
