Private Luxury Yacht: Fuel Filtration

Problem:

Ferrous Metal Contamination

Results After OEI Filtration:

Captain Nelson Merz stated, “When installing this filter it was placed after the inlet manifold, so filtration would occur during fuel transfer from tank to tank to balance the vessel and fuel the engines and generators. Since installing this system we have not occurred any algae problems. I also have the Magnetic filters installed protecting my engine oil.”

Ferrous contamination causing premature wear on the engine’s fuel injectors and the fuel pump.

Results After OEI Filtration:

Collected a significant of ferrous material, and in comparison to previous years, the Magnetic Filters “considerably” helped maintain the integrity of ship’s fuel and lube systems.
