Purafiner - the effective modern way to treat and control microbiological contamination of fuel systems.
The contamination of distillate fuels, lubricating and hydraulic oils is now a common hazard and is well known worldwide. It is a serious threat to Marine Safety and responsible for extensive damage to marine, industrial and land transport machinery. The cost attributable to microbiological contamination of diesel fuel and hydrocarbon oils cannot be quantified.
The bacteria of a variety of types, both aerobic and anaerobic, produce organic acids, including sulphurous and sulphuric. These highly corrosive chemicals will cause severe degradation of storage tank coatings, corrosion of metal tank surfaces and injection equipment.
The effect of the microbiological contaminants on fuel injection equipment is to quickly impair performance and dramatically increase wear rates. This brings about poor combustion conditions, loss of engine power and reduced service life of components.
