MES – Fuel Filtration
“The modern diesel engine is smoother running, quieter, more powerful, and yet much more environmentally friendly. The system can even diagnose its own problems. This is all well and good. But a major diesel engine problem is currently going undetected – and it is destroying these precision fuel systems. The problem is dirty fuel. Ten years ago, maximum diesel fuel system pressures seldom exceeded 3,000 psi. Today’s state-of-the-art fuel system pressures can be as high as 30,000 psi.”
“For most diesel engines, with every gallon of diesel fuel burned hundreds of millions of abrasive particles have cut their way through the fuel pump and injector system. As a result of this high amount of ultra-fine dirt contamination, high-pressure fuel pump and injector life is going to be greatly reduced. Silently and gradually the fuel system degradation proceeds until decreased performance finally becomes noticeable or the truck just quits running. All during this process the truck uses more fuel, creates more pollution, develops less horsepower, and becomes less efficient each day.”

Fuel contamination has been called the second leading cause of Emergency Power Supply failures. Many hospitals need to undertake regular fuel oil testing programs and fuel oil tank cleaning programs in order to ensure and document that their fuel oil is fresh and clean.
