RCI Technologies' redesigned emergency fuel transfer and filtration unit (PTFU) can be used to clean stored diesel fuel and transfer fuel between tanks, making it suitable for boat owners, fuel docks and stations, truck fleets, and other diesel fuel applications. The portable unit includes a fuel purifier with an 8 gal/min (30 L/min) flow rate; a 12-V, 1/5-hp (0.15-kW) motor; a 20-ft (6-m), 10-gauge power cord with battery clamps; detachable hoses; and a thermal protection circuit with on/off switch. The PTFU features filterless technology as well as a more compact design and a lighter weight than the previous generation, improving its capacity to transport, use, and store.
