Over time, water can accumulate in fuel storage tanks. Without proper tank maintenance, water build-up provides a perfect environment for microbes to grow and flourish, leading to “slime,” or microbe by-products.
This slime causes premature plugging of filters, and can lead to premature tank and equipment failure as the tank bottoms become corrosive.
A proper housekeeping regimen of regularly draining tanks completely can reduce microbial activity. But when control of these microbes requires more direct action, Afton can provide a full assortment of biocide treatment options that give you an effective solution.
