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.
