Filter out water

Filters from Sogefi

Published:  08 July, 2014

Diesel3Tech technology is used by Sogefi - manufacturers of the Fram, CoopersFiaam and Purflux filter brands - to guarantee water separation efficiency to extend service life and replacement intervals. This was developed to work with new diesel fuels based on ultra-low sulphur diesel and first gen bio-diesel. These have the potential to damage high pressure injection systems. The first two layers of the filter element prevent particles entering the fuel and the third is a water-repelling mesh. This system suits all European diesel blends containing up to 30% biodiesel. Spokesman Nigel Duffield states: "Today's diesel engines are more demanding than ever in terms of system equipment and maintenance. In particular, they are extremely sensitive to contamination. A dirt particle can damage the fuel system irreparably, from the pump right through to the injector, and the smallest of water droplets can cause very expensive damage. Diesel3Tech sets new standards of diesel filter performance in these areas. Our other high performance diesel filter solutions include electronic fuel heaters and water sensors, for example, to fully protect modern Common Rail injection systems."

  • Technology beats contamination 

    Sogefi was the first to manufacture filters using a technology known as 'Chevron' pleating, which maintains strength whilst offering up to 20% more filtration surface compared to standard, straight pleating. It filters tiny particles to protect turbochargers, takes up less space than standard filters but designed to perform as well as larger standard units. Diesel engines are highly sensitive to contaminants; dirt particles can damage the fuel system and the smallest water droplets can cause costly damage. Sogefi's Diesel3Tech technology guarantees water separation efficiency and extends service life and replacement intervals using three layers to filter dirt particles and water. It was developed to meet the demands of new diesel fuels based on ultra-low sulphur diesel which contain larger amounts of emulsified water and therefore pose a threat to high-pressure injection systems. In other news, Sogefi has replaced its cardboard cabin air filter packaging with a recyclable, transparent polypropylene packet which are smaller and lighter than the original and provides customers with more storage space. Air filter packaging is set to be upgraded soon.
