THE RCI TECHNOLOGIES
FUEL PURIFIER
What is an RCI Technologies Fuel Purifier?
The RCI Technologies fuel purifier is a simple one step unit that removes
99.8% of water and 95% to 98% of dust, dirt, and other normal and natural
contaminants found in all diesel fuel. Even today’s “clean” diesel fuel will
easily become contaminated during transportation and storage. Unlike all
other products on the market, the RCI Technologies fuel purifier performs
this function without the use of a replaceable, changeable, or clean-able filter
element, cartridge, or bowl. By removing contamination immediately before
the fuel enters the engine’s filter system, the purifier delivers cleaner fuel,
(virtually eliminating filter clogging) and therefore greatly extending maintenance intervals.
How does the RCI Technologies Fuel Purifier work?
The RCI Technologies fuel purifier is a unique product utilizing a threestage purification process using two well-known fuel separation principles,
centrifugal and coales-cence. By using these two principles, water and other
contaminants are separated from the fuel. This eliminates fuel filter clogging,
related breakdowns, down time, and frequent filter replacements.
As the fuel enters the purifier, it flows downward in a circular movement
through a internal baffle system entering the lower chamber of the purifier.
In the first stage of purification, the velocity of the fuel slows down considerably, allowing any free water droplets and other contaminants to maintain
their mass and not emulsify with the fuel. These impurities accumulate and
remain at the bottom of the purifier until purged.
In the second stage of purification, the fuel migrates through three perforated
baffle plates to stop any particulates and attract, by way of coalescence, any
water droplets still remaining.
In the final stage of purification, the fuel passes through our patented coalescence medium to assure that any small water droplets or particulates will be
coalesced out of the fuel stream. Only the clean fuel rises to the top, providing a cleaner burning fuel for quicker ignition and better combustion. Consistent clean fuel helps to increase the engine’s dependability, power, and efficiency.
On the FP-50, FP-80, FP-400 and FP-700, a heating element is optional to
preheat the fuel. This process helps liquefy the paraffin providing better lubrication for the entire fuel system including the pump and injectors. This heating element eliminates any wax or gelling problems.
The RCI Technologies fuel purifier is simple to install, and provides The
Permanent Solution to fuel system management and control. RCI Technologies also offers an optional water sensor kit, with an alarm signal, indicating purging is required.
Advantages of the RCI Technologies Fuel Purifier!
There are many advantages and benefits to the owner and operator with the
installation of an RCI Technologies fuel purifier. These advantages include
the following:
ENGINE BENEFITS
 Eliminates all water from the fuel system, thus avoiding time consuming
break downs while preventing the formation of damaging sulfuric acid.
 Removes all solid particles from the fuel system, including oxides, dirt,
rubbish, and all other impurities with a density greater than that of the fuel
itself.
 Preheats the paraffin contained in all fuel, providing superior lubrication of
the entire fuel system including the injector pump, injectors and cylinder
walls. (Heater-optional part)
ECONOMIC BENEFITS


Reduces down time.
Extends the life of the injection pump and the injectors.
Extends the life of the primary filter.
Protects and extends the life of the engine.
No internal or external parts requiring service or replacement.
ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS
 Increases the operating life of fuel filters.
 The major component of fuel filters is paper. Use of an RCI Technologies
fuel purifier results in fewer trees being cut each year.
 Reduction in land fill due to fewer fuel filter replacement.
 Providing fuel that is free of water and suspended particulates is the first
step in exhaust emissions control.
 Significant improvement in exhaust emissions. Tests on the RCI Technologies fuel purifier show that smoke emissions were reduced by
17.3%, carbon monoxide emissions by 10.4%, and nitrogen oxides by
5.9%.
