Reverso Pumps has introduced a Diesel Fuel Service Cart - a filtration and dispensing system combined into a single portable unit that removes sludge and separates water in diesel fuel.
"It's really for a boatyard or a mobile mechanic to be able to polish fuel and make the cost back in three or four jobs," Reverso president John Napurano says. "You can do a truck, a small boat, a 100-gallon tank on a sailboat, and with the same system you can do a 4,000-gallon tank on a big boat." The service cart has a flow rate of 630 gallons per hour. One person can maneuver and operate the 90-pound unit, which has a truck skid on the bottom to aid loading and unloading. It can run unattended and has maintenance alarms and clogged filter and water level shutdown features. The company planned to show two carts at the 2010 International BoatBuilders' Exhibition and Conference. Price is $2,975. Contact: Reverso Pumps, (954) 522-0882. www.reversopumps.com
