Kaydon Filtration offers industry expertise and solutions to address contamination, slowing degradation and more when dealing with long-term storage and the effects of bulk diesel fuel transportation. Particulate entry, condensation formation and water intrusion are common issues for large-scale fuel transfer operations.
Free-breathing storage tanks, high humidity, and deliveries by
pipeline, tank truck or barges, allow water to enter and accumulate in
diesel fuel storage tanks. Over time, water settles out of the diesel
fuel through natural separation and gathers in the low sump areas of
fuel storage tanks. To preserve the quality of diesel fuel, it is
necessary to remove particulate and water from the fuel transfer
pipeline without mixing it back into the contents.
Kaydon Filtration bulk diesel fuel purification skid assemblies can be integrated into the fuel transfer pipeline to reduce harmful particulates and damaging water from entering mobile equipment fuel tanks. By reducing the amount of contamination entering the fuel tank, the full burden of filtration and water removal is reduced for the on-engine filters, which further helps provide the needed level of fuel cleanliness for today’s diesel engines.
Skid assemblies are listed below based upon diesel fuel flow rate.
