MARINE

Substandard fuel, due to excessive particulate and water, is one of the major reasons for diesel engine problems.  Particulate and water can appear in diesel fuel due to one or more of the following reasons: 

1.  Diesel fuel is not filtered as it is transported through the fuel distribution network.
2.  During fuel transportation, diesel fuel picks up particulate and water.
3.  Diesel fuel has an affinity to attract moisture in marine environments, especially those offshore. 
4.  Fuel storage on a workboat, especially those venturing out into deeper water, have more time for condensation collection.
5.  Workboats operating internationally. where diesel fuel quality is suspect, can introduce high levels of contamination. 

At Kaydon Filtration, we recognize that keeping fuel clean and dry can be particularly challenging in marine environment.  As a solution, Kaydon Filtration offers a complete selection of diesel fuel purification products geared directly to keeping diesel fuel clean and dry for diesel driven marine equipment.
