Modern engines and plant equipment are designed to offer increased efficiency, reduced emissions and longer service intervals. As a result, they are also more sensitive to fuel and oil contaminants. In particular, higher fuel pressures within engines to achieve a more complete combustion lead to closer tolerances, causing even smaller particles to have an effect on the life and performance of fuel system components.
Modern ULSDs and biodiesels also pose an increased risk of water (moisture) retention and microbial contamination, which left undetected and untreated, can seriously degrade the quality of the fuel, and introduce other problems including reduced fuel filter life and accelerated corrosion of tanks, pipes and other metal components.
Maintaining reduced contamination levels in fuels and other fluids will save you money. You do this by establishing proper monitoring and control measures from the moment the fuel or lube is delivered to your site, until the moment that hydrocarbon is consumed, or removed from your equipment as waste product.
Banlaw’s expertise and knowledge offers solutions from the smallest application up to the largest multi – site installations. As the leaders in fuel management systems, Banlaw has developed a contamination Control Checklist to safeguarding you against performance compromised equipment.
