Municipality

The irreversible global impacts of fuel emissions and water quality are provoking governments to source clean technologies for improved municipal operations. OEI designs cleanable, high-efficiency filtration for bulk fluid applications to support air and water quality improvement initiatives.

Improved Reliability of Emergency Vehicles

Customer
City of Houston

Location
TX, USA

Equipment
Municipal Fuel Depot

Application
Fuel Dispenser

Challenge
Remove sludge found in the city’s underground fuel depots to protect emergency vehicle engines (police cars, fire trucks, and maintenance equipment). The fuel depots are underground and made of a fiber glass composite with little to no ferrous metal.

Solution
Clean the fuel tank and install an OEI high flow magnetic filter scrubber inline, prior to the metering pump.

Results
Just 3 days (3,000 gal) after the magnetic filter element had been cleaned, a substantial amount of ferrous metal was extracted. If left in the fluid this sludge will prematurely wear the injector nozzles and the injector pump, decreasing the equipments performance and efficiency.

RESULTS

Keeping Houston’s Emergency Vehicles in Service

The challenge was to remove sludge found in the city’s underground fuel depots to protect emergency vehicle engines (police cars, fire trucks, and maintenance equipment). The fuel depots are underground and made of a fiber glass composite with little to no ferrous metal.

Public Transport Bus Oil Change Extention

The challengve was to remove sub-micron sized ferrous contamination from the diesel fuel being missed by the traditional paper spin-on filter on the dispensing pump.

ATM Rimini Transport Bus Fuel Dispenser

Transmasivo, through the use of bio-fuels, was trying to reduce their emissions and wanted a filtration medium that would do the same while working efficiently on their bus line. Traditional filtration is incapable of removing contamination below 10 microns which causes damage to the fuel and oil system components, impedes the burn of the fuel, and increases emissions.

OEI magnetic filters are designed for 95+% efficiency: they are optimized for fluid viscosity, flow volume, flow rate, temperature, mobility, and mounting requirements.
