I have been doing some research
polishing systems that are designed for in-vessel installation
. I have looked at packages as well as some homemade setups on the internet
I am familiar with the large setups that can be "rolled" to your boat as well as centrifuges (on the vessel in the picture). (We also have a polishing system that uses 2 Racor
1000 series filters which are rated for 180 GPH
running off of a 110 volt gear
All I can say is that the "factory made" units seem rather "ambitious" in their flow rates.
Suffice it to say that even with clean fuel
, I find it hard to believe that these flow rates of 3 GPM/180 GPH can be achieved with a 12 volt pump.
Don't intend to ignite a firestorm here......just looking for insights/experience.
