This mobile fuel polisher has SAE certified filtration that will help to remove emulsified water and debris to 5 microns from diesel or light oil fuels. Fuel dispensed from this filtration system really is very clean and certainly fit for use in any modern engine. The polisher was designed for use in workshops and outside yards and so is available in 240/110 vac.
With the introduction of bio diesel things are not as straight forward as they used to be. In the old days water in diesel would over time fall to the bottom of the tank out of harms way. However this year the government have introduced a 7% bio diesel mix into ALL diesel. Unlike 100% diesel, bio diesel holds onto to water droplets and hence keeps them in suspension throughout the tank. Obviously large particles of water will become to heavy for suspension and fall to the bottom. But the smaller ones remain in suspension.
Ok, we have explained that bio diesel holds onto water. Tiny dormant organic spores (diesel bug) can often be found everywhere waiting for the right environment to hatch. Water is the type of place that they hatch in but like any living organism they require food. And guess what? These guys feed on diesel and hence they just love to settle down right inside your diesel tank. Just imagine having 1000 litres of beer in your house all the time!
Once they have established in the tank they propogate to form a large black snot like shape. They are very sticky and easily block filters and reduce the ID of a fuel line. This type of contamination is often referred to as Diesel Bug, Diesel Virus or Diesel Fungus. See our chemical treatment for diesel virus.
