Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and Your Engine
Only distillate fuels that meet required specifications will result in optimum engine performance and durability. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, especially in high temperature areas of marine engines. Salt water can cause fuel injector and piston ring groove deposits and wear in fuel system plunger and barrel assemblies.
Gen XI removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal growth. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the degradation of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These "diesel bugs" feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel degradation and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic droplets through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and achieve better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also contains detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also gives the operator a chance to store fuel for long periods and therefore "hedge" against rising fuel costs. For long storage of fuel, we recommend that the Gen XI product be used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for normal use.Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser produces outstanding results. There is no equal product.
Pristine fuel is imperative for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron rating. That's as close to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely efficient and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and frequently eliminates costly secondary filter blockage.
Microlube's innovative fuel filtration systems are finding increasing acceptance amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are designed to remove fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove contaminants as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material used for these bags and is available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to select a Microlube filter
1. Select the unit size based on the flow rate adjusted for the viscosity of the fluid to be filtered.
2. Select the micron rating of the bag to be fitted.
3. Select Port Position
4. Select the model # - eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with standard port, select model MFH 100
When Microlube filters are used in conjunction with Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser you have an end to end fuel maintenance system.
