IPU recently launched its upgraded Diesel Defence on-tank fuel polishing systems to deliver improved filtration, user-friendliness and to ensure smooth running for back-up generators in applications such as hospitals, datacentres and hazardous environments.
Recognising that fuel polishing is a job that often falls under the radar, IPU has designed its new Diesel Defence DD50 (flow rate of 50 litres per minute for tanks holding 7,500 and 40,000 litres) and DD100 (flow rate of 100 litres per minute for tanks holding 40,000 and 75,000 litres) to be the simplest, fuss-free fuel polishing solution to ensure users get  the most out of their fuel.
Engineered to a high standard Diesel Defence  remains user friendly; simply set it up once and it will run unassisted, month after month.  Alerts, which can also be sent by email, are clearly displayed on the integrated touchscreen controller which is visible at any time through a viewing panel. The touchscreen controller is password-protected to prevent unauthorised alterations to the fuel polishing cycle.
With improved filtration for water, the advanced water absorbing filters remove virtually all emulsified and free water present in the tank preventing both injector damage and microbial growth.  The multi-stage fuel filtration system removes solid and microbial contamination to the one micron level ensuring fuel is maintained to surpass ISO 4406’s 18/16/13 standard of cleanliness and EN590’s 200ppm level of water content.
Several improvements have been made to increase reliability; anti-rotational fittings prevent the polisher’s internal pipework turning when external pipes are tightened during regular maintenance checks.
Optional extra features include an external alarm beacon, custom enclosures (e.g. vented with extractor fan) and a particle counter plus IPU has the ability to adapt to specific needs and applications.
