About the product

Aquafighter Canvas is a fuel tank water absorber designed to remove both free and suspended/emulsified water out of diesel fuel directly in the tank, therefore providing a complete solution for water contamination. Aquafighter Canvas comes in two sizes, Medium and Large, depending on the size of the fuel storage tank. The diesel and oil tank water absorber is typically used for removing water from bulk fuel storage tanks and generator tanks, the medium size is suitable for a tank with a capacity of up to 5000 litres with the access of at least 12cm and the large size for a capacity of up to 10000 litres with the access of at least 16cm. Both sizes of the fuel tank water absorber can be manipulated through tank opening but not through a long pipe.

The bound and free water in a storage tank can cause issues associated with microbial growth, known as "diesel bugs", which is responsible for creating a nasty sludge that blocks filters, damages your equipment, causes engine system corrosion and poor fuel efficiency. The Aquafighter water absorber eliminates these problems by reducing the water content levels down to 75ppm to meet the EN590 diesel fuel standards (200ppm) and saving you costly damage and downtime. Unlike other solutions on the market, this diesel tank water absorber not only removes free water but also separates and captures the suspended and emulsified water, which often gets left to cause serious damage to your vehicles and equipment.

By doing this, the Aquafighter Canvas fuel tank water absorber provides numerous benefits including preventing diesel bug from forming, reducing filter replacements and need for tank cleaning and protecting the tank from corrosion.

Please note: If this is your first time using Aquafighter, we recommend buying 2 units. The first can be added to absorb the current water, which may become full quickly if there is a large problem with water. The second to be added once the other has been removed to act as a prevention against future water content.

What do you mean by suspended/bound and emulsified water? Is this different to free water?

Suspended water is that which is bound to the fuel molecules making it appear cloudy, as opposed to free water that presents itself as a separate layer to the fuel at the bottom of the tank. Under pressure changes and agitation, often experienced as the fuel passes through pumps and filters, water can become fully emulsified in fuel which sees it turning from cloudy to milky. This is where there is almost no separation between the fuel molecules and water content.

What is the difference between Aquafighter and other fuel tank water absorbers?

Aquafighter is fuel tank water absorber that removes both free, suspended and emulsified water in the fuel providing a complete solution to water contamination. Aquafighter ensures that your fuel tank is water-free all the time by absorbing the free water and separating and capturing suspended water that makes the fuel looks cloudy. On the other hand, other diesel and oil tank water absorbers on the market can remove only free water, solving half of the problem.

Can Aquafighter clean a dirty fuel tank?

Aquafighter fuel tank water absorbers can remove free and bound water level down to 70ppm (exceeding refinery spec). However, if you have a problem with seriously contaminated fuel with a large quantity of particles, dirt and bacteria, then Aquafighter fuel tank water absorber cannot improve the quality of considerably spoilt diesel fuel. In the event of considerably dirty fuel, we recommend considering professionally cleaning your fuel and tank and then start using Aquafighter to prevent problems with water contamination in the future.

What makes Aquafighter water absorber better than any additives on the market?

Aquafighter fuel tank water absorber is designed to keep your fuel water-free, preventing water contamination and diesel bug growth. Additives usually only treat the symptoms caused by water present in the fuel without solving the actual problem. Also, the diesel tank water absorber does not simply “absorb” water, but separates and captures it, which can save you money and time in repairing damaged equipment.

How long does an Aquafighter tank water absorber last?

Unfortunately, there is no straight answer to this question as Aquafighter water absorber can be influenced by factors such as how bad the fuel is contaminated, high humidity, leaks that require you to replace the tank water absorber more often. You can however retrieve Aquafighter at any time to check whether it appears full.

Should I worry about the Aquafighter expanding too much?

No. The Aquafighter fabric membrane is designed to resist expansion even when full. This is designed so that there is zero risk of removing it from the tank when it is full.

Is there a proof the Aquafighter diesel tank water absorber works?

The efficiency of the fuel tank water absorber has been tested over 7000 times by two of the largest fuel producers in the world and at the renown Saybolt Laboratories in Sweden. In every test sample, the results show that Aquafighter water absorber removes bound water to less than 70ppm. This and many more satisfied customers prove the Aquafighter is a perfect solution for water contamination in fuel.
