Do you know what the 3 different types of water contamination are? What about the 4 methods to remove water from your fluid? Watch our short video for a thorough explanation of each.
Moisture contamination is inherent in the world we live in. In fact, it's all around us; that's what makes it so difficult when it comes to keeping water out of your oil.
The level of water vapor in the air is known as humidity. For example, If there is 80% humidity, the air contains 80% of the total amount of water vapor it can hold at the given temperature. Thus, there's always an amount of water in the air.
We've all been there -- the power goes out and instant panic sets in. Until you remember that you have a backup generator for just this type of situation. You rely on that generator to run your servers, emergency equipment or entire facility.
But if you haven't tended to the diesel fuel in your storage tank, it could easily be contaminated with water and particulate, causing failure and requiring expensive repairs.
One way to keep your diesel clean and dry is to replace the fuel at a set interval. This will ensure that your generator has all it needs to function in case of an emergency; however, it can prove to be costly.
What if we told you that you didn't have to replace the diesel, even if it were contaminated?
