Diesel Fuel Conditioning
Today’s diesel engines require cleaner fuel with injector pressures approaching 30,000 PSI and the evolution of injectors into sophisticated expensive electronic components. Diesel engine manufacturers have learned that ultrafine particles that were of little consequence at ~20 MPa (3000 PSI) are now causing premature failures at 200+ MPa (30000 PSI). Diesel fuel lubricity has also decreased with the move to ULSD (ultra-low sulfur diesel) fuels.
These changes and others have resulted in:
- Premature fuel injector and pump failures
- Reduced on-board fuel filter life
- Increases in diesel fuel consumption
- Increased down and operating costs
- Lost production
Hy-Pro solutions to these problems include:
- DFE rated filter element upgrades to replace antiquated cellulose media elements
- FSL and COD bulk tank circulating and dispensing skids
- High flow low-pressure housing upgrades for all fuel dispensing points
COD Diesel Fuel Particle & Water Coalesce Conditioners rapidly remove particles and water with > 97% single-pass efficiency to ensure that fuels in tank farms and fueling trucks are clean and dry. These fluids should be dewatered from bulk tank to service truck and should at least be filtered while dispensed into mobile equipment to ensure high fuel efficiency and extend injector life. We also have solutions for periodic or continuous conditioning of emergency stand-by reservoirs so hospitals and other emergency response generators start when needed. For existing diesel fuel delivery systems we have particulate & water removal skids that can be fitted downstream of the existing dispensing pump. Customizable solutions to fit your application up to 500 GPM / 1,875 lpm and higher.
High Efficiency Fuel Filter Element & Housing Upgrades feature G8 Dualglass Media optimized for high single-pass efficiencies to ensure cleanliness not previously achieved by antiquated cellulose media or bag filters. Hy-Pro DFE rated elements are available in a wide range of sizes to fit into the particulate filter housing at the fuel dispensing point. Upgrade housings to Hy-Pro LF series filters with generously sized high-efficiency coreless elements to remove the particles and have long element life too.

Bulk Fluid Handling. Dedicated filtration and breathers on bulk storage and stand-by diesel fuels are the first line of defense in preventing one of the worst sources of particulate and water contamination, new fluids. Bulk storage tanks collect contaminants from delivery vehicles and through ineffective breather arrangements. Eliminate this dangerous source of contamination before transferring new fluids into critical diesel applications. Filter Carts are also a valuable tool for keeping fluids clean when transferred from storage to critical live systems.
