When particles build up in diesel they can become a nuisance for the smooth running of engines. By polishing, or filtering away, particles which are larger than about ten microns, many of the problems associated with contaminated fuel are simply done away with. Remember that this is not simply down to the combustion of the fuel, but its smooth flowing through an engine which counts. Large particles in diesel mean that internal filters often block up and the fuel ends up not get to where it is needed in sufficient quantity, or with the right degree of efficiency. Likewise, water which is suspended in diesel can allow unwanted bacteria to develop. Bacteria in diesel often leads to it appearing more like sludge and this can ultimately cause excessive wear and tear on components that it comes into contact with.

If there are problems with filters, injectors, pumps or diesel quality in general, it is advisable to take a bottom sample from the tank(s) and have it analysed. Sometime the diesel is so filthy that the conclusion is obvious: the diesel must be cleaned.
We offer a sampling and analysis service as well as sampling sets to take your own samples. These can also be sent to us for analysis, or can be tested for microorganisms with Liqui-Cult.
If contamination of the diesel with water, sediment and/or microorganisms is discovered, it is important to remove the contamination from the tank(s) and to bring the fuel back into optimal condition.
To this end we offer a tank and fuel cleaning service as well as the equipment to recondition the fuel yourself. If we clean the tank and fuel, before and after samples are taken to demonstrate the effect of service provided.
After the contamination has been removed, it is usually best to ensure that it cannot reoccur. With modern diesel, however, the chance of this is relatively high. There are a number of preventative measures, products and systems available for this. The choice for one of these is different for each situation, client and available budget.
We offer sampling services, complete fuel maintenance contracts and installation of preventative products and systems according to the KIWA BRL-K903-08 norm.
There are a number of options for the tanks as well as the engines/burners:
