Products & Services:

Heavy Fuel Oils:
Heavy Fuel Oils (HFO) from FFS are primarily used in large industrial boilers, furnaces, and engines where high energy output is required. HFO variants such as FO150 and FO10 are popular choices for their energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Due to their viscous nature, they often require pre-heating for optimal combustion. FFS ensures that their HFO meets strict quality and environmental standards, making them a reliable choice for heavy-duty applications.
Light Fuel Oils:
Light Fuel Oils (LFO) like Light Oil 10 (LO10) are refined petroleum products used in applications that do not necessitate the pre-heating required for heavier oils. These fuels are ideal for smaller, less intense energy applications such as small boilers and certain types of engines. LFOs offer a cleaner burn, producing fewer emissions than heavier oils, making them suitable for industries looking to reduce their environmental footprint.
Coal Tar Fuels:
Coal Tar Fuel, derived from the distillation of bituminous coal, is used in industries where high temperatures are necessary, such as in the production of cement or steel. Apart from its use as a fuel, coal tar is also processed by FFS to produce wood preservatives and other chemicals. This product is valued for its ability to release substantial amounts of heat, contributing to energy-efficient industrial operations.
Specialty Fuel Blends:
FFS’s Specialty Fuel Blends are custom-formulated to meet specific industry needs. These blends are engineered to provide optimal performance, considering factors such as burn rate, temperature control, and emission standards. These bespoke solutions allow clients to achieve precise performance characteristics from their fuel, catering to unique industrial requirements and improving overall efficiency.
LNG & LPG (coming soon):
FFS is expanding its energy portfolio to include Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) and Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG). These fuels represent a step towards cleaner energy alternatives, offering lower carbon emissions compared to traditional fuels. LNG and LPG are versatile and can be used across various applications, from heating and cooking to transportation and power generation. Their inclusion will allow FFS to support industries in transitioning to more sustainable energy solutions.
Technical Services:
FFS provides comprehensive technical services to ensure that clients can maximize the efficiency and lifespan of their fuel systems. These services include the installation, maintenance, and repair of fuel storage and reticulation systems. Additionally, FFS offers expert consultation on optimizing fuel usage and system design, helping clients to manage their energy resources effectively and sustainably. These technical services are crucial for maintaining operational reliability and achieving compliance with environmental and safety standards.
