Upgraded Fuel Conditioning Module Launched by Alfa Laval

At the upcoming Marintec China 2013 Alfa Laval will be showing their newly upgraded FCM (Fuel Conditioning Module) One.

Booster systems adjust fuel to the flow rate, pressure and viscosity specified by engine manufacturers. When Alfa Laval launched the original Fuel Conditioning Module, it provided a compact and flexible way of securing these targets. But times have changed, say the manufacturers, and so has the FCM.

The new FCM One is similar at a glance to its predecessor. Behind the familiar appearance, however, lies a great deal of change. “The FCM One combines the strengths of the original Fuel Conditioning Module with new advantages and a completely new level of flexibility,” says Paolo Golla, Alfa Laval Product Manager Fuel Conditioning Systems.

What sets the FCM One apart, Afla Laval explain, is the ability to integrate heating functions, cooling functions and much more into the same module, driven by the same controller. In its standard version, the FCM One filters the fuel and regulates its viscosity, pressure and flow. But for vessels working with multiple fuels, blended fuels or more advanced requirements, a broad range of additional functions can be integrated.

“Whatever the configuration, the FCM One is a single module with a compact design and a simple touchscreen interface,” says Golla. “Though the FCM One meets different needs without under- or over-delivering, it’s very much one system – with one frame, one logic and one-point access to any function.”
