Storage tank filtration is critical to avoid costly components damage.
The fuel supply, which includes the processing, transportation and long-term storage of diesel fuel is a critical stage that can result in contamination and degradation of the fuel. Studies show that only 43% of today’s fuel worldwide meets particle concentration requirements.
Failure to do so can result in severe fuel system component damage.
Storage tanks can harbour thick, viscous fuel components which can pose expensive problems. Customers utilising storage tanks should always ensure the diesel fuel being dispensed from that tank is both water-free and does not contain any contaminants like dirt. With insufficient filtration at the storage tank, a combination of sludge and slime can enter the fuel pick up line.
Accumulations on the fuel filters results in plugged filters and reduced performance. Even more severely, long-term contamination of fuel corrodes fuel injectors and other components within sensitive fuel injection systems.
To minimise fuel contamination in a storage tank, Fleetguard® fuel storage tank filtration is the effective and inexpensive way to meet the ISO4406 standard for fuel cleanliness and to protect costly fuel components, minimise operational cost and maximise equipment uptime. A Fleetguard® cellulose fuel filter in conjunction with a filter head – integrated into your pump fitting system is the fast lane to good fuel quality in your storage tank.
