Diesel Fuel Contamination and Conditioning

Contaminated Fuel – What to Do

Diesel fuel is often subject to long storage periods, especially in tanks that aren’t used often. What's more, the fuel can separate, producing a deposit of solid particles and water at the bottom of the tank due to the prolonged lack of usage of the unit. This can lead to pump damage and components becoming increasingly sensitive when switching on the motor.

That's why HYDAC has developed the LVU-CD10 diesel fuel conditioner and the LVU-CD40 diesel particulate filter. These units will help you remove any water contamination in diesel fuel and reduce the effects of potentially dangerous contaminants, helping to resolve contaminated diesel fuel problems and ensure the quality of your diesel fuel.

Why is Using a Diesel Particle Filter Important?

In addition to contamination from settled particles and other solid matter, free water in a tank (over an extended period of time) can become a breeding ground for diesel fuel pests such as bacteria, algae and fungus. This can quickly lead to blockage of the machine filter and damage to the diesel injection system components. Use of a diesel particulate filter can prevent or minimise the chances of damage and other common contaminated diesel fuel problems from occurring. The use of the Low Viscosity Unit LVU minimises diesel fuel contamination and prevents expensive system downtime. Spare parts won't need to be ordered, nor will extensive (and expensive) maintenance or repairs be required.
