Fuel Quality Services

CGRS provides complete tank cleaning and fuel polishing services for all fuel types including gasoline products and diesel. Water, particulate and biological contamination are removed from the fuel.

CGRS has teamed with AFS to provide complete tank cleaning and fuel polishing services for all fuel types including gasoline products and diesel. Water, particulate and biological contamination are removed from the fuel. Biocide and fuel conditioners are added as necessary.

Problems with water and degraded fuel in underground tanks can be a costly nightmare for fuel retailers and commercial fuel users. CGRS, Inc. provides a comprehensive solution for removing water, contaminants and restoring fuel quality.

CGRS provides a comprehensive service remove water from fuel reserves, as well as a complete tank cleaning and fuel restoration service to ensure premium fuel quality at all times for our longtime clients.

Unlike many  of our competitors who offer sub-par tank cleaning services, our cleaning technology sweeps the tank to remove contaminates and water from the tank. Only contaminants and water are removed from site. All your fuel remains in the tanks.

CGRS provides full documentation on the cleaning, as well as product quality reports and fuel inspection report on all tanks on site.

Our water pump out and fuel restoration services means you can manage:

  • Water issues including phase separation
  • Costly insurance claims from vehicles breaking down
  • Bacterial and fungal activity
  • Problems with blocked filters
  • Malfunctioning pumps and automatic tank gauges
  • Power outages with critical emergency power back up systems
  • Costly replacement of degraded fuel stock

Fuel Sampling & Analysis

How do you know if your fuel is off spec? We can take fuel samples from anyplace along the supply chain, from refinery to vehicle, to identify where contamination problems exist. Samples sent to the lab can be analyzed for particulate, water, bacteria, re- polymerization and more depending on the situation. Or we can use Parker Velcon icountFSparticulate analyzer on site and give you an ISO 4406 result in minutes. Then we provide solutions to fit each situation.

FILTRATION

As a Parker Velcon channel partner, CGRS can provide you with all your filtration solutions. That 30 micron filter you have out at the dispenser will no longer cut it. To meet the ISO 4406 standard you have to filter to 4 micron! Properly sized filtration is key to ensure fuel quality, minimize downtime and filter blowouts.

Meeting the ISO 4406 Diesel Fuel Standard

The EPA passed regulations to reduce emissions from diesel engines. Manufacturers have released new engines to comply with these regulations. These common rail engines operate at a significantly higher pressure—up to 30,000 psi—and require fuel that meets the ISO 4406 particulate standard. Out of spec fuel can plug vehicle fuel filters, cause filter blowouts, injector damage and can potentially void your warranty.

TIER 4 DIESEL ENGINES

Diesel engines are used in many industries including trucking, railroads, mining, power generation, back-up power generators and automobiles. New engines operate at a significantly higher pressure. Poor fuel quality causes erosive and abrasive wear in these engines leading to premature component failure and costly downtime. The cost of failure includes repairs to the engine, lost production, unplanned downtime and, in critical diesel applications like back-up generator systems at a hospital, can also endanger lives.
