Agricultural engineer winner goes to to further success


Winning the Ivel Award at LAMMA was just the grass roots of success for County Durham based Fuel-Guard's diesel fuel decontaminator.

After winning the award, which is given for the product or innovation which has the most positive impact on the environment, the company found interest in the product escalated with interest and enquiries flooding in from around the world.

Ian Currie, a director of Fuel Guard, who was presented with the award at last year’s LAMMA said "I couldn’t believe the level of interest in the decontaminator."

"It is such a simple, yet effective system which needs very little maintenance."

The Fuel Decontaminator is a one step unit that will remove up to 95% of solid contaminants and 99.9% visible water, including emulsified water that may be present in the fuel.

Using an entirely new, unique, filter design, the system will eliminate the problem of water and particulate contamination in fuel.

No replacement of filter elements or cartridges are required, as the Fuel Decontaminator performs this function with a reusable lifetime filter element.

It can be easily cleaned without the use of tools when blocked, by removing and gently washing the element with clean fuel.

Following the success at last year’s LAMMA show Currie has sold the distribution rights to the diesel fuel decontaminator to Interlube Systems, which has rebranded it the Fuel Klenze.

"I am very pleased to be associated with Interlube Systems which has the resources to distribute and support the product on a much larger scale," said Currie.
