Fuel cleanliness problems can cause costly damage to engine
and components. Filtering the fuel before it enters your engine makes economic
sense to help prevent impurities from damaging internal engine and its components.
Over the years engines have been modernised to provide us
with higher horsepower, improved fuel efficiency and greater reliability. The
modernisation has resulted in having to increase the pressure and tighten
tolerances in order to achieve the desired outputs. Contamination from both
organic and inorganic material including water enters the fuel. These
contaminations are one of the main reasons that engines and its components can
Thus being able to finely filtrate the fuel prior to entering
your engine and its components is key to reduce component wear and also to optimize
MES Ltd are proud to be an authorised dealer for Fleetguard
filters. These filters can be cross referenced to your engine filters.
Why choose Fleetguard?
Fleetguard filters are part of the Cummins family. They work
with Cummins during design and manufacturing process to ensure their filters
meet the highest standards. They meet and exceed OE standards for optimum
protection and therefore reducing operation costs. Fleetguard innovative
technologies means cleaning fuel to ISO 22/20/18 to ISO 18/19/19 and better.
Why are oil filters important to your boat engine?
The purpose of oil filters is to remove contaminants from
engine oil and lubricating oil. This helps the oil in your engine to last longer
increasing the time required between oil changes. The oil in your boat engine
is there to increase the life of your engine by providing lubrication to the
moving parts within the engine.
Types of Oil Filters
There are several types of oil filters that remove contaminants
from the oil in slightly different ways.
The mechanical design uses either pleated filter paper or
cotton waste. Contaminants build up on the filter paper which will eventually
restrict the amount of oil flowing through the engine system. The build-up of
contaminants will be the determining factor for when to change this type of oil
The cartridge or spin-on type are basically a self-contained
filtering system. They can either be mounted on the engine or remotely with
supply and return pipes connecting the oil filter to the engine system. These
filters have a permanent housing which contains the oil filter element. The
spin-on filters make changing the filter much easier and less messy and is the
most popular oil filter used on many engines.
Other types include magnetic, sedimentation, centrifugal and
high efficiency. These however are less common types of oil filters.
