Njord automatic Fuel Filtration Systems are recommended for use in Continuous Power, Emergency Power and Home Based Tank setups at for instance mining sites, transportation and other industrial companies.

Each fuel tank is its own biosphere. Diesel fuel is naturally unstable and forms sediments over time. As water enters the tank with the consumption of fuel, micro-organism contamination is always a threat. The drastic reduction of sulfur and addition of bio-components to diesel fuel in recent years have further reduced shelf life and increased fuel related headaches. To make sure your engines or burners run reliably and efficiently on (bio)diesel, it is strongly recommended to install a fuel filtration system on each fuel tank.

To bring and keep the fuel in spec and meet the engine manufacturers’ fuel cleanliness requirements, it is essential to keep water below 70 ppm and reach at least an 18-16-13 ISO 4406:1999 particle size distribution. Multi-pass filtration with a water absorber and absolute filter elements with a high Beta ratio for filtration below 5 micron are required. This is realized using the Njord automatic Fuel Filtration Systems running in a parallel recirculation loop to the fuel tank.
