Effects of Contamination
Effects of Fuel Contamination
Partial Functional Failure: Generally, partial functional failure relates to an inefficiency in the engine performance due to continual contamination. Signs of partial functional failure include reduced engine power, reduced engine rpm, increased fuel consumption, smoke, noise, poor idle, and rough starting.
Catastrophic Full Functional Failure: Often dramatic events; this type of failure is highly visible to operations and high in cost, resulting in downtime from an engine that ceases to function. Common engine failures can be misdiagnosed, and if correctly analyzed, attributed to failures within the fuel injection system.
How a Fuel Polishing System should be integrated into your facility:
- Water Separator
- Fuel Conditioner
- Filtration Unit
