ROCKLEDGE, FL — October 19, 2018 — Mainstream Engineering Corporation, a 32-year-old Brevard County manufacturer with a history of leading-edge research and development, has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Air Force to demonstrate a Portable Fuel Purification System.
Thousands of pounds of fuel are recovered from aircraft during maintenance and this fuel is often then used in support equipment. Recovered fuel that is contaminated (water, sediment, hydraulic and/or engine oil) may adversely affect equipment life resulting in unnecessary maintenance costs. Mainstream is demonstrating a high volume, low cost, portable fuel purifier suitable for flight line and depot fuel recovery and reprocessing operations.
