Fuel Cleanliness Throughout
With increasing operating costs (e.g., fuel usage cost, equipment downtime cost) and strict environmental legislation (e.g., GHG emissions), the mining industry faces difficult challenges when running fleets of large diesel powered engines. To ensure optimum engine performance and reliability, particulate and water contamination in diesel fuel must be controlled to acceptable (specification) limits. Standard on-board filters for fuel cleanliness are not designed to handle high levels of contamination. Therefore, to prevent premature plugging and frequent change-outs of on-board filters, fuel cleanliness should be controlled throughout the entire fuel supply chain.
Ultipleat Diesel Plus Filters
Modern heavy duty diesel engines are highly susceptible to damage from particulate contamination in diesel fuel while water contamination can reduce efficiency and accelerate wear. The result, if left unchecked, is reduced reliability of critical equipment, unscheduled downtime and an increase in maintenance and repair costs.
Equipment reliability is a major key performance indicator in the increasingly competitive mining business. Maximizing equipment uptime and extending the life of capital equipment is paramount to improving business performance.
