Stadis Dissipation Additive Injection Skids for UK Fuel Terminal

When rapid fuel flow rates are combined with highly refined low-sulphur fuels, electrostatic charge can quickly build up.

Slow dissipation can be a potential hazard, as a discharge from an electrically charged fuel to the side of the tank can ignite the fuel vapor, causing an explosion.

This is particularly a problem with aviation fuel which is why Static Dissipation Additive (SDA) Injection Skids are becoming one of our most popular export skid solutions.

We’ve been pleased to help clients who’ve found themselves needing to proportionally inject Static Dissipation Additive’s such as STADIS® 450 into free flowing pipelines that carry jet fuel or diesel.

The solutions we deliver are typically tailored to each customer’s specific project requirements. Such systems typically include but are not limited to additive storage, additive pressurisation & a method of controlled injection of the SDA proportional to the measured flow of the main product pipeline.

The solutions are designed, built and fully flow tested at our facilities here in Fareham, Hampshire, UK before being packaged for worldwide export.

FLOCAL by Flotech Performance Systems – Safe, Accurate & Repeatable Additive Injector Calibration

At Flotech Performance Systems we have drawn upon 30 years’ experience in additive injection systems to launch the world’s first closed loop additive calibration device – the FLOCAL.

FLOCAL provides accurate & repeatable calibration without exposing engineers to potentially harmful additives or vapours.

FLOCAL combines inlet diverter valve, calibration cylinder, graduated piston gauge, outlet diverter valve and sample return pump in one compact device.

FLOCAL captures additive in a built-in calibration cylinder from which volume can be read using its graduated piston gauge. Once volume is recorded, the FLOCAL’s integral pump exhausts the contents of the calibration cylinder via a dedicated outlet which can be piped to slops or back to tank.

The unique design of the FLOCAL makes it the first true closed loop additive calibration device. Using FLOCAL during calibration makes the process safer, quicker and more efficient.

  • Integrated calibration cylinder with graduated piston gauge in 1cc increments provides more accurate results than using a simple calibration jar.
  • Closed loop design means operators are no longer exposed to potentially dangerous additives.
  • Integrated sample return pump prevents additive used during calibration from being wasted – it can simply be returned to tank.
  • Optional 100cc and 350cc Calibration Cylinders ensure performance across a diverse range of treat rates.
  • Optional Thermal Relief Bypass allow for thermal expansion when the unit is idle, negating the need to purge the system after use.
