Fuel Polishing

Diesel fuel polishing is necessary for the removal of contaminants such as water, fungus and microbes which often develop into thick sludge.

Stored diesel fuel will deteriorate over time and in several different ways. The most common is through water contamination (condensation). This is where water molecules can infiltrate the fuel molecules. Water then displaces the diesel fuel inside the diesel engine, increasing wear because of the lubrication's absence.

The infiltration of water encourages bacterial growth within the diesel fuel causing fine sediments and bacterial residues to form, these may eventually sink to the bottom of the tank resulting in filter blockage, fuel pump wear, diesel engine damage or engine shut down.

Water is the worst form of fuel contamination!

Metartec’s engineers will visit your premises and take the necessary steps to cycle your fuel, removing any contaminated water, biomass or bacterial growth and returning the fuel to its optimal state.

The only safe method is prevention and since no one can predict a breakdown, Metartec recommends that you polish your fuel periodically to keep it in its optimum condition.
