Diesel Fuel Cracking Column

Black Powder contamination larger than 30 microns in size causing cavitation and pump failure.
Black Powder contamination under 10 microns down to and below 1 micron flow through the strainer, damaging equipment components downstream and degrade product quality.
Unscheduled maintenance for pump replacement. The repairs require switching to standby pumps, while the pump and pipe is removed to access cone strainers for cleaning. Often, the line leading to the strainer would also plug off. The line would require manual cleaning to the back of the valve.

Effective Filtration on the Suction Side of Pumps

March 2020 Use high strength permanent magnetic fields to remove Black Powder contamination, and there is no requirement for the use of screens or membranes (magnetic versions of cone, basket and wye-strainers are available). Clean magnetic separators show pressure differentials in the sub-0.5 psi range and are at 0 psi in most liquid applications. Contamination-loaded …
