The high-pressure injection systems in modern diesel engines place high requirements on fuel quality. Due to the increase in injection pressure to at least 2000 bar and the growing biodiesel fractions in the fuel, efficient particle and water separation is becoming ever more important for protecting the engine from abrasion. FILTORQ FILTER fuel filters ensure that impurities and any water contained in the fuel do not damage the engine. Whether prefilter or main filter, FILTORQ FILTER offers a comprehensive fuel filtration range for virtually any application for spark-ignition as well as diesel engines.
Modular fuel filter systems intelligent solutions for the future
Different requirements demand customised solutions: with innovative filter media and system solutions, FILTORQ FILTER fuel filters fulfil the strictest specifications for the protection of modern diesel engines. If required, they can also be adapted to the specific properties of alternative fuels such as biodiesel.
Depending on customer requirements, modular fuel filter systems can perform a wide range of optional functions. Examples include water separation, detection and discharge, fuel preheating to support engine start-up at low temperatures and the measurement of fuel pressure and temperature by built-in sensors. The design of parts is optimised with regard to cost, weight and installation space.
Multilayer filter media for efficient separation
FILTORQ FILTER filter media have been developed for diesel and spark-ignition engines and fulfil all the requirements placed on modern fuel filter elements. The multilayer structure keeps even the finest particles away from the sensitive injection system. In particular for diesel fuels, there is also a water separation function. This helps avoid corrosion damage to the injection system. Together with the high dirt holding capacity, the MULTIGRADE filter media thus ensure optimal protection. Fuel filter elements for diesel engines are also often integrated in a modular housing filter system. They are then metal-free and can therefore be incinerated without leaving any residue.
