ALGAE-X International Introduces the New Smart FPS Series of Automated Fuel Polishing Systems

Revolutionizing Onboard Fuel Polishing & Transfer Systems

Fort Myers, Florida, March 7, 2009

ALGAE-X's introduction of the SMART FPS Series marks a new era of fuel polishing & on-board fuel quality optimization for the marine industry.

By combining fully automated control and monitoring with fuel decontamination, water & sediment removal, the SMART FPS revolutionizes fuel polishing. It provides a degree of efficiency and control in relation to foot print, maintenance and price that exceeds all prior traditional equipment.

The new series of compact, industrial quality Smart FPS Systems cover a wide range of flow capacity and tank sizes. They promote safety, increase reliability, and protect your engines. When taking on fuel in unfamiliar places, the Smart FPS will automatically ensure that your fuel is being optimized before it is used. It functions as an on-board tank cleaning system and when used as your fuel transfer system, it will supply completely clean and dry fuel to your day tanks.

Fuel stability in general has not improved in recent years while engines have become much more fuel sensitive. The introduction of ultra low sulfur fuel and the increasing use of bio-fuels have negatively impacted fuel stability and caused a dramatic increase in filter plugging and injection system failures. The new and innovative SMART
FPS systems eliminate & prevent these problems. They eliminate microbial contamination, keep your tanks clean and your fuel in pristine "clear & bright" condition at all times.

For flexibility in optimizing engine room space, the systems are equipped with an innovative modular "plug & play" Smart Filtration Controller, the SFC-50, that is derived from our industrial line of fuel conditioning & filtration systems. It features a programmable PLC with text interface; color coded large alarm indicator lights and a wiring harness that easily plugs into the system, so that it can be mounted in any convenient location.

The SFC-50 is designed for remote monitoring & control of safety and alarm functions. It is ready to interface with your vessel's monitoring and management computer system. These unique features are of great interest to boat builders and naval architects who wish to offer their clients full "on the bridge" visibility and control of all on-board
systems operating their vessels.

Smart FPS Systems are available in several standard models with a choice of primary filters e.g. Racor & Separ. They have stainless steel plumbing and are mounted on a corrosion proof powder coated aluminum back-plate with a drip tray and cover.

Algae-X International designs, engineers, manufactures and provides fuel conditioning, filtration and water separation equipment that is now available in over 40 countries around the world. We work with owners, ship yards, naval architects and engineering firms in designing and manufacturing custom built, innovative fully automated fuel conditioning equipment.
