FUELS

To achieve dependable, long-term performance from diesel fuel powered engines, it’s essential that the diesel fuel be free of water and particulates. Even small quantities of water suspended in diesel fuel can become hash abrasives under high pressure. This can result in costly damage to injectors and fuel pumps, as well as cause unplanned downtime.

To make sure that your diesel fuel supplies are consistently dry and free from damaging particles, it’s important to install dependable diesel fuel purification equipment at each diesel fuel transfer point.  For more than 75 years, Kaydon Filtration has been helping owners of workboats, turbines, and mining equipment protect their investments.
