There are various things you can do to reduce the increasing costs of operating and maintaining machines while also increasing their lifetime. 

Delaying the need to spend money on overhauls and the replacement of costly parts saves a lot of money. One of the most effective methods to achieve this is to make sure the fluids you use in your stationary plants are clean.

Keeping contaminant-free fuel and fluids in storage:

  1. Decreases the amount of gasoline and service fluid wasted

  2. Prevents unplanned, unnecessary maintenance

  3. Prolongs the life of components and the period between costly major maintenance

  4. Warranty protection from the vehicles' original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

  5. Decreases fuel use and, as a result, greenhouse gas emissions

  6. Enables the use of the most up-to-date (and most efficient) engine technology


How does clean fuel improve vehicle and plant performance?

Modern diesel engines are developed and engineered to be more efficient, emit less pollution, and have longer service intervals. These engines are less tolerant of impurities in fuel, oil, and other service fluids as a result of advancements in design and engineering.

To improve fuel atomization, many engines have greater fuel injection pressures. Better fuel atomization leads to a higher surface-to-volume ratio and a better fuel/air mix, which enhances the fuel's combustion properties and allows for more complete combustion. Although the use of more modern components and systems has reduced consumption and emissions, their emission control capabilities are less effective when processing polluted fluids. Fuel efficiency savings are also lost due to contaminated fluids.

Only using clean liquids is the key to decreasing pollutants released by industrial equipment while also increasing their fuel economy. Maintaining clean fluids in your company may have a number of beneficial side effects, not the least of which is improved reputation and increased income.

Maintaining proper contamination control is easier with an advanced fuel management system. Clean fuel improves engine performance, improves fuel efficiency, and decreases maintenance costs by reducing machinery malfunctions and downtime. This translates to increased production throughout your whole organization, which may result in considerable financial savings.


Prevention tips to address contamination in fluid management

1. Receiving 

To guarantee that warranties remain intact, liquids coming into machines must meet the manufacturer's criteria. This ensures that the OEM will look after your machine if something fails. Unfortunately, it's impossible to know whether your fluid delivery is clean or not, whether it's up to spec and fulfills the OEM's cleanliness standards before accepting it.

There are a few things you can do to make sure your gasoline is pure and uncontaminated. Consider sampling and testing it, such as inline cleanliness testing to determine the density of the fuel and detect the presence of water in the fuel. 

Filtering bulk industrial liquids after the reception is another technique for avoiding downstream issues.


2. Storage

Gasoline storage is a critical issue to consider when it comes to keeping your fuel clean. If your fuel contains water, the suspended water droplets, as well as any particulate contaminants, will sink to the bottom of the storage tank, and you should be able to drain water, particulates, and sludge from the bottom of the tank to avoid depositing them in machinery and vehicles when refueling.

Before utilizing liquids that are near a tank's bottom, you may also top up your bulk storage tanks. A quality fuel management system, along with a reliable field controller, will inform you how much gasoline is in the storage tank and whether there is any water that needs to be drained.

Alarms may be set to signal when there is a shortage of water when filters need to be replaced, and so on. Installing a desiccant filter to absorb moisture in the air before it is sucked into the tank is also recommended.


3. Distribution

Contaminants are commonly introduced into the fluid stream of fuel and service fluid transfers. Dust, dirt, and ore collect on or into recesses in fluid transfer components and are frequently poured straight into fuel tanks, grease compartments, and oil compartments.


4. Consumption 

Non-road diesel engines account for a large number of worldwide emissions, and rules are fast changing to encourage emissions reduction. Electronically controlled injector solenoids, high-pressure common rail fuel injection systems, and sophisticated turbocharging, all of which are present in current diesel engines, have significantly improved pollution control capabilities.
