LVU-CD-10

POA

The LowViscosity Unit LVU is intended for offline filtration. The LVU removes solid particle contamination and free water from diesel fuel.

Diesel fuel is often subject to long storage periods, especially in tanks which may be used infrequently. As a result, solid particles and water are often deposited on the bottom of the tank and can then damage pumps and sensitive components when the engine is switched on.

In addition, over an extended period of time free water in a tank provides a breeding ground for diesel fuel pests (microorganisms such as bacteria, algae and fungus). Deposits and pests can both quickly lead to blockage of the machine filter and to damage to diesel injection system components. The consequence: impermissibly high levels of
dangerous emissions from the combustion engine. This leads to high costs for downtime, spare parts, maintenance and repairs.


Using the LowViscosity Unit LVU minimises contamination to a system and prevents expensive system downtime. It also eliminates the need for early and expensive disposal of diesel fuel.

Applications:

  • Mobile & stationary emergency generators e.g. in hospitals, shopping centres, power plants
  • Tanks on portable machines e.g. agricultural and forestry machinery
  • Storage tanks e.g. for agriculture and mining
  • Yachts and leisure boats

Advantages:

  • Increased system availability
  • Reduced risk of diesel pests thanks to separation of free water from diesel fuel
  • Care and dewatering possible even when the combustion engine is turned of
  • Can be used flexibly thanks to adjustable transfer pumping function (continuous or time-programmed)
  • Optional automatic drainage of water from the coalescing housing for increased convenience and greater process reliability

FAQs

  • What is the Low Viscosity Unit Coalescer Diesel LVU-CD-10 used for?

    The Low Viscosity Unit Coalescer Diesel LVU-CD-10 is used for offline filtration to prevent diesel fuel contamination and accompanying expensive downtime and disposal of diesel fuel.

    What does the Low Viscosity Unit Coalescer Diesel LVU-CD-10 specifically remove from diesel fuel?
    The Low Viscosity Unit Coalescer Diesel LVU-CD-10 removes solid contamination and free water from diesel fuel.
    How much of a problem is solid contamination and free water in diesel fuel?

    Solid contamination and free water are a common problem in diesel fuel because it is often subject to long storage periods, especially in tanks, resulting in deposits of solid particles and water at the bottom of the tank.

    What are the consequences of solid contamination and free water in diesel fuel?

    Solid contamination and free water in diesel fuel can damage pumps and sensitive components when switching on the motor.

    Also, over an extended period of time, free water in a tank provides a breeding ground for diesel fuel pests, ie microorganisms such as bacteria, algae, and fungus, etc. These pests can quickly lead to machine filter blockage and damage diesel injection system components. The consequences of this are impermissibly high levels of pollutants from the combusting engine, which results in high downtime, spare parts, maintenance, and repair costs.

    What are Low Viscosity Unit Coalescer Diesel LVU-CD-10 applications?

    Low Viscosity Unit Coalescer Diesel LVU-CD-10 applications span portable and stationary emergency generators such as in hospitals, shopping centres, and power plants; tanks on portable machines such as agricultural and forestry machinery; storage tanks for agriculture and mining; yachts and leisure boats; and test benches.

    What are the advantages of using the Low Viscosity Unit Coalescer Diesel LVU-CD-10?

    Advantages of the Low Viscosity Unit Coalescer Diesel LVU-CD-10 include greater system availability; reduced risk of diesel pests thanks to separation of free water from diesel fuel; possible dewatering when the combustion engine is turned off; flexible use due to an adjustable transfer pumping function (continuous or time-programmed); and optional automatic water drainage from the coalescing housing for increased convenience and greater process reliability.
