- Eliminates bacteria and fungi from infected bottom water in fuel storage tanks
- Helps protect stored fuel against microbial contamination for extended periods
Uncontrolled microbial contamination of fuel storage tanks can lead to costly problems:
Microbes typically live at the water/fuel interface, where they feed on the organic material in the fuel while living in the water. Water can enter a fuel storage tank from a number of sources:
BUGOUT® sticks have been designed to effectively disinfect water that collects at the bottom of fuel system tanks commonly used for gasoline, distillate fuel, and crude oil. BUGOUT® sticks are most effective when used in tanks that have a continuous bottoms-water layer. The active ingredient in BUGOUT® Sticks is 100% water soluble. It dissolves and disperses completely throughout the water layer at the bottom of the tank providing excellent disinfection and preventing microbes from causing damage to either the tank or the fuel stored in the tank. Because BUGOUT® does not dissolve or disperse in the fuel, there is no worry about having your antimicrobial treatment change any fuel properties.
Microbial contamination in bottoms-water can be controlled effectively with 100 mg/L of the active ingredient in BUGOUT® sticks. The following table provides guidance on the number of BUGOUT® sticks to use for up to 2,000 L (528 gal) bottoms-water.
