Diesel Fuel Filter
Diesel Fuel Filtration
KLM Performance supplies premium quality diesel fuel filters from FASS, AirDog, Fleetguard and Mopar for use in your diesel engine. Diesel fuel is the liquefied fuel used in a diesel engine whose fuel ignition takes place as a result of compression of the incoming fuel-air mixture. Since the diesel engine does not use a spark as the source of ignition it is vital that the fuel supplied to the engine must be properly filtered. Diesel engines are popular due to their higher thermodynamic output and increased fuel efficiency.
What does a diesel fuel filter remove?
- Dirt, Rust, Debris, and Scale
- Suspended contaminants
- Entrained Water or Emulsified Water
Diesel Fuel filters are a vital part of today's diesel engines. Using the proper name brand diesel fuel filter ensures a long trouble free life of the engines high-pressure diesel fuel injection system with its very tight tolerances. Improperly Filtered or Unfiltered diesel fuel may contain several kinds of contaminants.
The more common types of contaminants found in diesel fuel are:
- Paint Chips.
- Dirt that has been knocked into the tank while filling operations occur.
If these substances are not removed before the fuel enters the fuel injection system rapid wear and failure of the fuel pump and injectors will occur. Diesel fuel containment's are very abrasive and must be removed from the diesel fuel supply by using the correct filter. Using the correct Diesel Fuel filter also improves the performance of your engine. The cleaner the fuel supplied to the engine the more efficient the combustion process becomes. These impurities can plug fuel injectors resulting in engine malfunction or deterioration of the fuel injection system components.
Diesel Fuel Filter Maintenance
Diesel Fuel filters need to be maintained at regular intervals. If a diesel filter is not replaced regularly it may become clogged with contaminants and cause a restriction in the fuel flow, Diesel fuel flow restrictions cause a drop in engine performance as the engine struggles to draw enough fuel to continue running normally.
How is the efficiency of a Diesel Fuel Filter rated?
Fuel Filters as rated on a basis referred to as a Micron Rating. A micron is a thousandth of a millimeter or a millionth of a meter or .000039 of an inch. Micron is the unit of measure used to determinate the size of particles in a fluid which is filtered out by the filter. The lower the number the more contaminants the diesel fuel filter is capable of removing.
What is the difference between Absolute and Nominal micron rating?
Micron rating is the size of particles which are filtered out by filters at a certain efficiency. When this efficiency is at least 98.6%, we speak about absolute micron rating/filtration. Nominal micron rating is just a commercial trick for all efficiencies lower than 98.6%, meaning that for the same micron rating not all particles will be captured in the filter as in the case of absolute micron rating.
