Without effective fuel filtration systems, fuel tanks and fuel systems have always been a haven for the collection of contaminants and moisture, which have an adverse effect on machinery life and performance.
The combination of high pressures, reduced lubrication and contamination is forcing companies to realize the need for fuel contamination control before delivering fuel to the engine. Cleaner fuel reduces wear on expensive and sensitive fuel injector parts, resulting in optimal performance and better fuel economy. Harvard’s fuel storage filtration systems control contamination prior to pumping fuel into the engine tank, which reduces filter plugging, improves fuel system longevity and decreases downtime.
An effective fuel filtration system also has a more immediate cost benefit, eliminating the need for biocides and chemical additives.
