When diesel fuel is moved through the distribution system, contaminants are introduced that negatively affect fuel quality and can be passed along with the fuel and cause engine wear. Typical contaminants in diesel fuel systems are free water, particles and microbiological growth.
Importance of Filtration in Storage and Transfer Systems
Filtration of diesel fuel in storage and transfer systems is important as the fuel must meet cleanliness standards at the points of use. Fine filtration is required at both filling lines and storage systems. In the presence of free water in a fuel storage tank, microbial growth can spread and result in contamination that must be removed. It is imperative that an engine runs on quality fuel to ensure the best mechanical performance. Failure to remove the accumulation of contaminants prior to use will result in increased fuel system wear and eventually engine failure. Effective combustion also plays an important role in reducing exhaust emissions by achieving complete combustion in the engine cylinder.
