Inglett & Stubbs International is capable of implementing several types of Fuel Systems to best meet our customers’ technological needs. These systems include Diesel Fuel, Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO), and Natural Gas.
Diesel Fuel Systems require a bulk storage facility on site. The storage facility is connected through a series of piping, valves, and fuel forwarding pumps, which transport the fuel to day tanks located nearby the end-use generator or other equipment. Day tanks hold 8-24 hours’ worth of fuel. Fuel filters and water separators are also installed as part of the storage facility to remove impurities and water trapped in the fuel source.
Heavy Fuel Oil Systems also require on-site bulk storage facilities. These storage facilities are maintained at a minimum
temperature in order to keep the oil moving freely and working properly with the equipment. This minimum temperature is maintained with the help of a series of inline heaters and tank maintenance heaters, which ensure the fuel is at the correct temperature during each stage of its progression through the fuel system. As fuel is pulled from the bulk storage facility, it is pumped to a settling tank for 24 hours to allow large particulates to settle. From there, the fuel is pumped to a centrifuge to further remove impurities. Finally, the fuel is moved to a day tank, where its temperature is maintained until use. Upon leaving the day tank in route to the end use equipment, a booster heater heats the fuel to its final temperature, and then it is ready for combustion.
In addition to these fuel systems, ISI can also connect from regulated Natural Gas supplies, providing all temperature and pressure regulation to ensure generation equipment will run properly.
