5 Reasons Fuel-Site Water Intrusion Is Increasing

It is a pretty well known fact that most of the Earth’s surface is covered by water so to say it permeates our existence is an understatement.

While this liquid is essential to our existence, it also wreaks havoc on many man-made systems it comes in contact with and in our world of petroleum, it would be classified as a super villain!

And while our industry has been reacting to the havoc water causes for more than a century to develop better ways to keep it out of refueling systems, water intrusion has INCREASED in refueling systems!
