Joe Filter is a field service, job-site maintenance tool used to clean fuel in long-term storage in small tanks. Typical applications are generator base tanks, generator day tanks, and small bulk storage tanks to 2000 gallons. Joe Filter is fully portable and self-contained. Joe is easily moved at the job-site by one person using his built-in wheels and handle and can be off-loaded from a service truck via a lift-gate or ramp.
Joe Filter provides complete fuel filtration and conditioning with his built-in 5-micron, spin-on particulate filter and 2 PPM water coalescing and separating filter. A 6-gallon holding tank is included for draining of the separation canister.
Joe includes a 5 GPM, cast-iron, high-lift pump and pump control panel. Water detection, filter differential pressure and holding tank full alarms are provided.
A selection of hoses and wands are supplied with Joe Filter. The service tech need only access the tank through an available port and insert the suction and return hose/wand. The circulation pump can then be run continuously until the tech is satisfied with fuel condition. Typically, at least one-quarter of the tank is circulated, drawing from the tank sump. The pump will automatically stop and an alarm will be activated if the water collection canister fills or the particulate filter differential pressure limit is reached. The tech can then either drain the collection sump or replace the particulate filter and resume filtration. A spare spin-on particulate element is included.
With modern diesel engines, fuel quality is paramount and poor fuel quality is a prime cause of generator set unreliability. Joe Filter is the ideal field service assistant for the multitude of generator sets equipped with integral base tanks or day tanks where fuel has been stored long-term and may have degraded from water and particulate contamination and the resultant growth of algae and bacteria and rust formation.
