Diesel Fuel Conditioning
Diesel fuel is often subject to long storage periods, especially in tanks which may be used infrequently. As a result, a deposition of solid particles and water happens on the bottom of the tank. It can then 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 (microorganisms such as bacteria, algae, fungus, etc…).
Both can quickly lead to blockage of the machine filter and to damage to diesel injection system components.
The consequence: impermissibly high levels of pollutants from the combusting engine. This leads to high costs for downtime, spare parts, maintenance, and repairs.
The use of the Low Viscosity Unit LVU minimises contamination to a system and prevents expensive system downtime. HYDAC offers the LVU-CD10 and LVU-CD40
