Engine tolerance of lower quality fuels varies. Research has proven that high biodiesel blends can cause oil ‘gelling’, injector deposits, blocked filters and seal degradation – ultimately shorter engine life.
Today’s engine and injectors are designed for high quality diesel fuel which meets the recommended fuel standards. Diesel with a higher blend of biofuel is too ‘thick’ for most systems because of the greater viscosity of the raw oils.
Biodiesel is much more solvent than pure diesel fuels, meaning it picks up contamination when flowing through the injection system. Biodiesels are more susceptible to microbial degradation than diesel fuels and likely to cause problems to sensitive injection systems.
Issues experienced can range from poor running and smoking, or filter, seal and injector failure to even complete engine failure. Cost of repair can be anything from $100 injector repair, to engine replacement outside warranty for $10,000s.
Plant and machinery downtime costs to shipping, mining, agricultural and oilfield operations could run to $100,000s of deferred production.
Salunda has developed the innovative DieselProve™ screening tool as a check on fuel quality. In only thirty seconds, DieselProve™ can tell you if diesel meets the EN590 standard.
DieselProve™ diagnoses potential fuel contamination problems in minutes. Proprietary software provides a printed report of the biodiesel content of a fuel sample.
Using this data, the user can immediately identify whether there is an unacceptable amount of biodiesel present, or impurities which will have damaged engine filters, seals or injectors.
Less than 50 ml of fuel required for a test. This tool ideal for workshops receiving only system components, or garages carrying out vehicle servicing, since samples can be taken from the fuel pump or the filter.
