Fuel Oil Handling
We engineer and fabricate fuel oil handling systems for diesel generators and dual-fuel fired boilers for mission critical facilities such as data centers, hospitals, and emergency response facilities. Our engineers specialize in mission critical fuel oil system design so they are current with the latest industry practices and fire protection codes. In addition, Preferred Utilities offers a wide variety of fuel oil system components designed to meet the unique requirements of our fuel oil customers. Preferred Utilities' industrial factory is located in Danbury, CT (Connecticut).
- Generator Fuel Systems Affect Uptime
- Whether for a data center, health-care building or 911 call center, a great deal of time and effort are put into the design of the emergency backup generators, switch gear and UPS equipment that supply emergency backup power. Often very little attention is given to the design of the fuel oil supply system necessary to run the generators. A badly designed fueld system can cause a power interuption just as certainly as a failure of the the downstream equipment.
