Ferrous Announces FMS, System For Administering Catalyst Into Fuel Oil — Literature Available
Ferrous Corporation, Bellevue, Wash., a manufacturer of combustion catalyst for marine diesel and boilers has developed a complete system for administering catalyst into the fuel oil. The Ferrous Marine System (FMS) provides the user with a proportioning pump, depulsing unit and 24-gallon daytank for injecting Ferrous FE-4 Catalyst into the fuel oil at a ratio of one gallon per 3,000 gallons of fuel. The FMS automatic injection system mixes the fuel and catalyst with a minimum of effort and maintenance and a high degree of reliability. The standard FMS package also includes a 90 gallon storage tank.
The FMS proportioning pump allows accurate proportioning of FE-4 Catalyst from the catalyst daytank into the fuel line. It is powered by a variable stroke, oil driven, diaphragm pump. The standard pump operates on 115 VAC. DC and multiphase pump motors are available on special order. The pump comes in various output capacities, measured in gallons per minute or hour, to meet virtually any fuel oil flow requirement.
The FMS Depulsing Unit is designed to smooth out the pumping pulses in the flow from the catalyst proportioning pump to the fuel oil line.
The FMS Daytank incorporates a sightglass and measuring markings which allows easy on-board calibration. The daytank permits monitoring the addition of catalyst to maintain a constant "fuel to catalyst" ratio.
The FMS includes a pump mounting plate measuring 12 by 14 by 3 inches; the daytank measures 15 by 15 by 32 inches. The system includes an in-line filter, pressure gauge and a spring-loaded in-line check valve as well as operating and installation manuals.
