Emissions directives are raising the standards for
diesel fuels and Australia is aggressively driving down Carbon emissions and
has set a target for these reductions:
will reduce emissions from 612 million tonnes of CO2 to 441 million tonnes of
CO2 on 2005 levels by 2030.
target represents a 50-52% reduction in emissions per capital and
64-65% reduction in the emissions intensity of the economy between 2005 and
As a consequence, suppliers must guarantee that there
is less contamination and lower water content in their fuels.
It has become essential to monitor particle
contamination and water content to comply with the new high-quality
requirements. Diesel fuel filters need filtration, dewatering and fuel
condition monitoring in every stage of the transport chain.
HYDAC has developed a product range which includes
housings, fluid conditioning units and sensors necessary to achieve this
reduction of carbon emissions.
The HYDAC LVU-CD-10 and HYDAC LVU-CD-40 are both
offline filtration units who can remove solid particle contamination and free
water from diesel fuel.
The use of these units minimise contamination to a
system and prevent expensive system downtime. It also helps to avoid the
necessity of early and expensive disposal of diesel fuel.
- Greater system availability
- Reduced risk of diesel pests thanks to separation of free water from
- Care and dewatering also possible when the combustion engine is turned
- Can be used flexibly thanks to adjustable transfer pumping function
(continuous or time-programmed)
- Optional automatic drainage of water from the coalescing housing for
increased convenience and greater process reliability
