UFFV – MTU Indonesia

March 30, 2015

Mtu Indonesia needed to minimise downtime caused by premature wear of fuel components. In the mine environment, particles were getting into the fuel through the unfi­ltered fuel tank vents. A super class mining truck uses between 4,000 and 5,000 litres of fuel a day, so an equivalent amount of “unfi­ltered” air was entering the trucks’ fuel tanks.

MTU needed an effective 3 micron fuel tank breather suitable for mining trucks.

Banlaw’s Ultra Fine Filtered Vent was installed on two trucks for a trial period of 2,500 hours. Filter samples were evaluated at 500 and 2,000 hours. The results were verified by MTU’s head office in Germany.
