Expresslube (UK) Ltd is a company which specialises in the clean up and prevention of contaminated diesel and other hydrocarbon distillates in fuel tanks on boats and vehicles, also underground / aboveground fuel storage tanks.
What Expresslube prides its self on, is their fuel polishing expertises. Being one of the first companies in the UK to offer the fuel polishing service we have established a reputation for attention to detail, genuine customer commitment whilst providing competitively priced service and products.
Work is carried out on site using our unique portable separator system eliminating the water and fungi. Leading to three primary problems: microbial growth, tank corrosion and eventual engine failure.
- Plugged, slimy filters
- Dark, hazy fuel
- Jelly like slime
- Loss of power
- Excessive smoke
- Corroded injectors
- Foul odour
The industry standard tank cleaning process involves significant disposal of waste-water and the repurchase of new fuel. The following highlights the industry standard process; First, the disposal of the existing fuel in tank - Second, the use of pressure washing with steam or water to clean the tank - Third, the costly disposal of the oily water created from the tank cleaning process and finally the purchase of new fuel to replace the fuel that was disposed of. Replacing contaminated fuel is now more expensive than ever given the current high cost of gas oil and diesel.
Expresslube eliminates those costly steps by using the fuel in the tank as the cleaning agent. Our fuel polishing machine is operating very much like a dialysis machine extracting the fuel and water were the microbes live and multiply. The sludge and bio-mass either suspended in the fuel or on the bottom of the tanks is contained within our machine. The machine operates at high rate and agitates the tank contents with the fuel return as the cycle continues.
