Diesel fuel coalescer removes contaminants

These custom-built filter housing assemblies can ensure that #2 Diesel fuel meets or exceeds all stringent new fuel oil cleanliness specifications set by major turbine generator and large off-road equipment manufacturers.Oil Filtration Systems’ fuel filtration and coalescer systems remove fuel contaminants through two processes. Firstly, high efficiency filter elements remove particulates down to 1-micron to meet or exceed specifications as low as ISO 14/12/11. Next, high efficiency coalescer and separator elements remove free water to less than 50 PPM levels.The fuel filter/fuel coalescers are intended for #2 Diesel fuel for use in turbines, as well as high sulphur and low sulphur #2 Diesel fuel for use in CAT® haul trucks and other large mobile equipment. Additionally, the equipment is used to remove contamination from medium unleaded gasoline, light fuel oil, naphtha and alcohols. Units are sized to handle flow rates as little as 50 GPM or as much as 2,000 GPM or more. The fuel filter/fuel coalescers can help prevent fouling and clogging of fuel injectors on turbine generators and newer Tier 2 and Tier 3 diesel engines. On larger off-road equipment, the systems can also prevent premature plugging of fuel filters.
