Fuel solutions from Filtertechnik



What is Contamination?
Contamination is any substance with is foreign to a fluid system and damaging to its performance. It can either come from external sources or be generated from within. Contamination can exist as a gas, liquid or solid; some examples would be water, solid particulate and algae or ‘diesel bug’. The size of the contamination can vary from the size of a grain of salt, down to those undetectable by the human eye.

Why Filter?
Over 80% of all diesel and fuel system problems are caused by contaminants in the fluid. Even if no immediate failure occurs, contamination can dramatically decrease operating efficiency.

Contamination affects a wide range of systems and can accelerate component wear and decrease service life. Worn components in turn contribute to inefficient operation, seizure of parts, higher fluid temperatures, leakage and loss of control. Filtering a system’s fluid can remove many of these contaminants and extend the life of system components.
