All-Round Protection From the Refinery to the Engine: HYDAC DieselProtection

Emissions directives are raising the standards for
diesel fuels. As a consequence, suppliers must
guarantee that there is less contamination and lower
water content in their fuels. The increasing percentage
of biodiesel has the additional effect that existing
systems must be retrofitted with diesel conditioning
In order to meet the requirements, it is not sufficient
to condition the diesel just prior to usage in the
machine. The fuel must be filtered and dewatered at
every stage of the transport chain – from production
in the refinery to the end user. To comply with the
high quality requirements it is essential to monitor
particle contamination and water content.
The HYDAC product range includes the housings,
fluid conditioning units and sensors necessary to
do this. For every step of the process – from production
to consumption – HYDAC provides specific products
for optimum fluid monitoring and conditioning.
In addition to the on-board products for smaller
diesel quantities on machines, equipment is also
available for larger flows. This is used during transport
between different storage depots, on fuel stations
and when transferring to the engine…
