The Aqua-Zorb free water removal cell has been specially formulated to absorb free water from many different types of oil and fuel storage tank bottoms. Suitable for use with diesel fuel, petrol fuel, aviation fuel, kerosene, lube oils and heating oils. Each cell comes with a 5 metre (longer if required) metallic woven anti-static retrieval line and easy to follow instructions. The outer cover is made from a stop-rip nylon material. The cell sits in the fuel tank bottom and absorbs the water. Remove the cell - remove the water!
Simply choose the correct size (water absorbed swollen cell sizes dictate the tank opening required to remove the full cell) then lower the cell to the bottom of the tank and leave it to absorb the free water. Occasionally lift to see the cell to see the swollen size and once full just remove from the tank and replace with a new cell. Available in a large range of sizes to suit tanks of all sizes from small vehicle tanks to 1,000,000,000 litre tanks. Each kit is individually packed along with instructions of use, disposal guidelines and waste disposal bag.
Stainless steel tank rods with stainless fasteners to suit different cell sizes complete with a strong anti- static retrieval line makes insertion and removal a straightforward and simple task. Stock cells are currently available to fit a minimum opening of 38mm but can be manufactured to fit smaller apertures. If your tank only has a filler or dipstick point and does not have a suitable access manhole cover then just install several smaller cells.
Extremely cost effective method of removing excess water and the smaller cells are particularly suitable for marine and leisure boats, agricultural and forestry, transport, power generation and small storage tanks and home heating tanks.
Larger cells for bulk storage tanks in all industries.
The retrieval cord has to be securely fastened to enable removal of the cell preferably inside the cap or tank lid; it can easily be secured using the clip fastener to the inner cap chain or by using one of our Magclamps.
Once all free water has been removed fit a new cell to absorb any future ingress of water. Also once the free water has been removed consider giving the fuel a ‘polish’ to remove any remaining dissolved water and dirt.
