BOATS INCREASE IN VALUE WITH FUEL POLISHING SYSTEM
The daily build-up of condensation in a diesel fuel system can lead to contamination from bacteria growth. Now with Parker Energy Systems’ FPM-050 Fuel Polishing Module, boat owners can combat this daily accumulation to further ward off corrosion and help prevent other system problems.
The FPM-050 is designed for easy retrofitting into existing diesel fuel systems, whether in line with the main fuel filter/water separator or as part of a dedicated fuel maintenance loop. With an automatic full-flow bypass valve, there’s no need for a manual valve to switch between polishing the fuel and using the engine. The system also meets ABYC standards pertaining to diesel fuel systems and onboard electronics.
The state-of-the-art piezoelectric pump installed in the FPM-050 uses about 2W to run, equivalent to 3.6 A-hr/day. Many navigation lights even take more power to operate. The FPM-050 can be powered by an optional solar panel, leaving no net drain on batteries. This enables the module to run continuously and unattended for extended periods of time. When run constantly, it helps keep the engine at peak performance levels.
The FPM-050’s piezoelectric pump features a substantially longer life than other displacement pumps. The design of the pump eliminates many wear points, enabling owners to enjoy many years of use without seeing performance diminish over time.
Scheduling fuel maintenance is simple with Parker’s FPM-PTC-12 Programmable Timer/Control. Incredibly versatile, this unit can be used to control other devices installed in the onboard DC electrical system. It works with any 12V DC appliance that draws up to 12A, including lighting and ventilation systems.
Parker Energy Systems’ FPM-050 Fuel Polishing Module has price of $585, while the FPM-PTC-12 Programmable Timer/Control costs $239.
