Diesel Filtration

MTIS Group offer complete diesel filtration solutions for removal of particles, water, bacteria/ sludge and oil degradation products from contaminated diesel fuels. We have solutions to suit general transfer and dispensing, through to management of bulk storage tanks. Rust and corrosion in a tank will create hard particulate that is passed along in the fuel, causing engine wear and the lifetime of critical components such as injectors, fuel pumps and filters to significantly shorten. Filtration, dewatering and fuel condition monitoring means protection from breakdowns, stoppages and expensive service interventions.

Systems are available to suit all applications including single, multi and bulk storage dispensing facilities and can be designed to operate remotely from a skid or hard mounted onto existing equipment. MTIS Group have a solution for all applications large and small, please contact us for further information.

The effects of diesel contamination

Water & Particles
Water and dirt tend to be the root of problems in diesel systems. Studies
have proven a direct correlation between the water and particle level in
diesel and the lifetime of critical components such as injectors, fuel
pumps and filters. Common problems caused by water and particles in
the diesel include rust/corrosion, cavitation, microbial contamination
and abrasive wear. While both will have a direct negative impact on
the engine, water found during storage particularly leads to bacteria
growth, which can lead to clogged fuel valves, injectors and in-line
pressure filters resulting in engine stop.

Asphaltenes, Paraffins & Resin
As a by-product of the refining process and a natural consequence of the
fuel degradation process, modern diesel can contain asphaltenes, paraffins
and resin. These substances are commonly known as organic debris, aka tar/
asphalt, wax, sludge and diesel bugs. The majority of this organic debris is
acidic and will cause corrosion of injectors, pumps, and tanks. It can plug
your injectors, affect combustion and eventually clog in-line filters. In short,
it will eventually destroy an engine.
