Diesel fuel must comply with the European standard EN590.
In favor of the environment an increasing addition of biofuels is prescribed in this standard.
In addition, the sulfur concentration is reduced and High sulfur fuel oil may no longer be traded.
Good for the environment but less well for an emergency power generator.
Availability is the most important factor for this equipment and this availability will be jeopardized by this modern fuel.
Modern diesel obsolete three times faster and forms faster and more sediment.
Also thrive natural organisms / germs good at it.
Because growth of bacteria in the whole fuel supply and increased sludge deposition in the fuel tank, the reliability of the emergency power installation can be in danger.
This can result in:
- Engine failure
- Too little power output of the generator
- Faulty fuel pump
- Clogged fuel filters
- Incomplete combustion
- Clogged injectors
- Launching on cylinders
- Increased emissions
- Corrosion in the tank and piping system
With the specially developed diesel cleanunit we are able to filter precious fuel / coils.
Corrective or preventive, once or permanently according to ADR / KIWA requirements and certificate.
