Sogefi’s advanced three-layered Diesel3Tech™ replacement fuel filters deliver excellent filtration performance to meet the challenge of freezing temperatures.
Today’s highly sophisticated diesel engines are extremely sensitive to both contamination and cold temperatures. A single particle of dirt can damage the entire fuel system beyond repair and inadequate maintenance can lead to droplets of water freezing in the fuel system, blocking the flow of fuel to the engine and causing serious damage.
One of Europe’s leading manufacturers of OE and Aftermarket automotive filters, Sogefi, has the solution. Its pioneering high quality replacement diesel cartridges employ the company’s proprietary Diesel3Tech to deliver filtration performance equivalent to OE equipment.
When these replacement filters are fitted in a timely manner – before freezing temperatures arrive – car owners have the comfort of knowing they are well prepared for whatever winter brings.
Diesel3Tech combines three high performance filtration materials in a single element. The first two layers, which prevent particles from entering the fuel, achieve up to 95% filtration for particles down to 4μm. The third layer, made from hydrophobic (water repelling) plastic mesh, guarantees removal of up to 99% of contaminated water, irrespective of water droplet size.
Diesel3Tech™ meets the challenges posed by new diesel fuels based on ultra-low sulphur diesel (ULSD) and first generation bio-diesel fuels made from vegetable and animal oils – the so-called fatty acid methyl esters (FAME). These new fuels contain increased amounts of emulsified water. Smaller water droplet sizes and increased emulsion stability defeat conventional fuel/water separators, increasing the risk of damage to modern, high-pressure injection systems.
