Filter Solutions – How to Get Water Out of Diesel Fuel
Diesel fuel is often subject to long storage periods, especially in tanks that might only be used sporadically. As a result, deposits of solid particles and water can build up at the bottom of the tank. These deposits can damage pumps and sensitive components when switching on the motor.
In addition, over an extended period of time, free water in a tank provides a breeding ground for diesel fuel pests (e.g. micro-organisms such as bacteria, algae and fungus). Both can quickly lead to blockage of the machine filter and cause lasting damage to diesel injection system components. This can lead to significantly high levels of pollutants from the combusting engine, and therefore, high costs for downtime, spare parts, maintenance and repairs.
For this reason, it’s important to find out how to get water out of diesel fuel and discover some of the more effective filter solutions. Fortunately, HYDAC is here to help.
HYDAC’s Low Viscosity Units (LVU)
HYDAC designs the Low Viscosity Units LVU, intended for offline filtration. The LVU removes solid particle contamination and free water from diesel fuel. It minimises contamination to a system, prevents expensive system downtime, and helps to avoid the necessity of early and expensive disposal of diesel fuel.
These units are available in two models: the LVU-CD-10 and the LVU-CD-40.
