Re: Fuel System requirements


When designing a new fuel system plan for a fuel maintenance system.  Allow extra piping in the tank to accomodate a seperate suction and return.  This simple and inexpensive addition will save you money down the road.  the immediate addition of a fuel maintenance system will provide immediate return on investment.  For suggestions on fuel maintenance system piping email me and I will help.

Fuel System requirements

I am designing a pipe system to suppy diesel fuel to a set of generators, and am wondering what the general requirements are for the flow rate of the supply line are in terms of the generator's fuel consumption (needed in order to spec fuel pumps). Generators being used are between 2000 and 3000 kW.
