County Durham-based Fuel-Guard, scooped the Ivel Award for its Fuel Decontaminator at this year’s LAMMA machinery show, which was held in Newark, Nottingham on 18 and 19 January, 2012. The Ivel Award, sponsored by the Institute of Agricultural Engineers, is given for the product or innovation which has the most positive impact on the environment.

The Fuel Decontaminator is a simple, one step unit that will remove up to 95% of solid contaminants and 99.9% of visible water, including emulsified water, which may be present in fuel.
Using an entirely new unique filter design, the system will eliminate the problem of water and particulate contamination.
No replacement of filter elements or cartridge is required, as the Fuel Decontaminator performs this function with a reusable lifetime filter element. If it becomes blocked, it can be easily cleaned without the use of tools, by removing and gently washing the element with clean fuel.
Ian Currie (Managing Director) said:
“We were thoroughly interviewed during the show by a panel of senior engineers. This was a difficult award to win and we are pleased that the judges recognised and understood the major environmental benefits this unique cleanable filter system can offer.
“We would welcome enquiries from anyone who would like more information about our products, or who is interested in becoming an agent or distributor for Fuel Guard."
