Veeder-Root Introduces HydrX™ Fuel Conditioning System to Combat Corrosion

Innovative system polishes fuel and removes water from the lowest point of the underground storage tanks to help protect diesel fuel equipment from corrosion

Greensboro, North Carolina, UNITED STATES


Simsbury, CT, Jan. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veeder-Root, a worldwide leader in fuel management technology, announced today the availability of their newest breakthrough, the HydrX Fuel Conditioning System, which is designed to combat in-tank corrosion in the harshest fueling environments. In-tank corrosion has been a significant challenge in the retail fueling industry for over a decade, as corrosion causes fuel degradation, limited fuel flow rates, and premature equipment breakdown.

The HydrX Fuel Conditioning System provides continuous water removal within diesel underground storage tanks. Unlike other water separating systems, HydrX is uniquely designed to remove water from the lowest point in the tank, preventing water from stagnating on the tank bottom and breeding microbial contaminants. The integrated filtration removes entrained water, rust, sand, and microbial particulate from the fuel, polishing it before returning clean fuel back to the tank. Keep fuel within specification and maintain equipment at peak efficiency to avoid unplanned site shutdowns with HydrX.

“Advancements in diesel fuel, particularly Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) and Biodiesel, create an environment where microbial growth could flourish” said Stephen Coppola, Global Product Manager at Veeder-Root, “The HydrX Fuel Conditioning System’s ability to remove standing water from the lowest point of a fuel tank coupled with our unique fuel filtering technology helps site owners avoid costly equipment failures and downtime caused by excessive corrosion.”

HydrX retrofits into existing sumps and incorporates proprietary water and particulate removal technology, providing best-in-class protection of the fuel and fueling equipment.

Key Features of the HydrX Fuel Conditioning System include:

  • Removes standing water from the lowest point of the tank and entrained water in the fuel.
  • Integrated filtration removes entrained water, rust, sand, and microbial particulate from fuel, polishing and cleaning it before returning it to the tank.
  • Field proven technology provides best-in-class reliability.
  • System retrofits into existing sumps.
  • Compatible with 100% Diesel, B100, and other Biodiesel Blends.
