Hydro-Carbon Filtration & Separation recently shipped several skid based -diesel treatment packages- for Dublin based Cloud Hosting Data centers Clean diesel fuel is crucial for Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) emergency backup diesel (critical power) generators. These systems preserve the integrity of the stored fuel that must be optimal in case of a power outage from the grid. Diesel fuel tanks can become contaminated with micro-organisms (bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and algae) during transport and storage in bunker and day tanks mainly caused by tank-ventilation and condensation. Micro-organisms can only survive, grow and multiply in the water phase of any medium. Microbiological contamination can have very serious consequences: the by-products of micro-organic metabolism block filter elements and diesel pipes, additionally they cause abrasion processes on injectors especially in conjunction with free water. The material of the tank walls and pipes can also be severely damaged. Corrosion is further accelerated by water-soluble salts and hydrogen sulphides, a by-product of metabolism.
Water concentration is the crucial factor for micro-organism growth and the diesel oil pest problem can only be addressed by reducing the amount of water in the fuel. This can be achieved by implementing continuous fuel treatment systems.
